There are some excellent walking tracks up to the top. I parked at the car park off Shire Road (turn at Red Rooster on Logan Rd and follow this street until you see a car park on your left about 100m past the entrance gate).

Visited the lookout at night, neither of us had heard of the look out before, however got a recommendation from a friend. We were very surprised with the view and didn't expect to see as much as we did. This lookout is much quieter than the likes of Mt Cootha and possibly even a better view! The road leading up...

Great place to cycle up . There is a nice coffee shop at the top . Views are magnificent . Ride to the top is really enjoyable . There are a few hikes to take to the top . Really worth the time spent . Highly recommended

Can see the fireworks but still too far to "feel" them. Lots if families had the same idea to watch the fireworks from there but I feel it wasn't really worth it. Simply too far away

This is a great view point to see the whole of the Brisbane area. There are a whole selection of walks. It is well worth the drive to see this attraction

I did not about this lookout and without any plan we arrive there because we were driving close when we saw a sign! Definitely it was a beautiful view to Brisbane compared with others.
