  • Must see lookout for both day and night. Came the first time but it was so hazy and the second visit was clear with nice city view. Only one cafe that serves great coffee and snacks (open 365 days or maybe not new year day). Air is so fresh especially in the morning and also good place for short morning walk with the young and elderly. There is no public transport to this lookout and self drive is recommended unless you are a athletic. Great uphill bicycle ride for cycling enthusiasts easily a half hour uphill ride. There is trekking trail as well. Have a great time there. Die die must go in Brisbane.
  • Although the sky was filled with smoke from the fires that were burning off in the distance the atmosphere up her was amazing. There were many families around sharing an evening with each other and taking in the sights of Brisbane's lights shimmering below. Even with the amount of people around it was still quite peaceful and a great place to clear the mind. I would highly recommend visiting this place if you are from out of town and even if you are a local it's a great place to relax every once in a while.
