Owner description: Capture a great overview of Townsville with a visit to Mount Stuart. Providing views overlooking the entire city and across to Magnetic Island and Cleveland Bay, Mount Stuart is a great way for visitors to get their bearings before further exploring Townsville North Queensland. Walk, run, ride or drive to the top of the 9km road, but if you plan to tackle it by foot ensure you have a good level of fitness and plenty of water as it is a steep climb in areas. Once you reach the top of Mount Stuart, enjoy the breezes, relax with a picnic, take in the views or further explore the short bush walks around the area.

Spectacular 360 degree views over Townsville and Magnetic Island.
The loop walk is a little difficult in places but well worth it.
Saw wallabies at the top and a few kangaroos along the 9 km road to the top.
Well worth a visit. Views are much more expansive than from Castle Hill.

Went to the Mt Stuart lookout to watch the new years fireworks. It was a great place to go excellent views over Townsville city & not to many people up there. There were families having picnics & couples eating pizza but not crowded at all. If you happen to be in Townsville next new year I recommend Mt. Stuart Lookout as a good place to go away from the normal crowds.

We found that it offers a great view of the city and we always take visitors there, especially at night

This road is a regular for all kinds of traffic; we ride motorbikes on the road to enjoy the corners so encourage others to observe staying to your side of the road; lets all enjoy safely. It is a real pleasure to get to the top and enjoy the look out.

Great views across townsville. Make sure to be careful driving up as the road is a bit dodgy and has racing on it at times.
