  • 1st time heading up to the lookout with my boys. It's such a beautiful view with a lot of space for multiple photos. Great for large group photos to capture that Brisbane scenery behind you. They have a great Cafe during the day and restaurant for the evening. I'll update my feedback once we head back again for the evening experience. Here are a few photos from our day trip.
  • Definitely a must do for anyone visiting Brisbane. Great views over the city particularly in the very late afternoon or early evening, or really early on a foggy morning. Parking is usually a bit limited particularly on weekends so the best place to find a car park is the smaller car park area behind the restaurant.
