  • A very peaceful place to relax and watch the sun go down while enjoying the Queensland weather. Fantastic views of Brisbane. There is a small restaurant that is occasionally open and a well equipped kids playground. There are also plenty of hiking trails in the area.
  • Lovely hiking spot so close to Brisbane CBD! Best part is we can get there by bus! Two entries I know are at the Griffith Uni Mt Gravatt campus (only 900m or less) or the Mt Gravatt town centre (only around 1km away) One can do a small hike or a bigger one which makes it flexible! Great for morning hike or runs before it gets hot! Fantastic!! One can also drive all the way up. Best part is the cafe that overlooks Brisbane! It opens at 9 am
