Camp Mountain Lookout
D'Aguilar National Park (Southern)
A hidden gem of a lookout with views of the Brisbane City skyline, Moreton Bay and the Glass House Mountains.
This lightly trafficked location is found at a car park at the end of Camp Mountain Road in Mount Nebo.
The short walk includes two lookouts with constructed wooden platforms. The first is located right next to the car park and offers sweeping views towards Moreton Bay and the Glass House Mountains.
The second lookout, Bathersby Lookout, is a short stroll away through the barbecue and picnic area that is nestled within a pocket of forest and offers incredible views of the Brisbane city skyline and north-western suburbs.
There is also a trail network, used by hikers, horse riders and mountain-bikers, nearby the Bathersby lookout platform.
This is a great lookout to view as part of a day trip from Brisbane to Mount Glorious, along with Jolly’s Lookout, Westridge Outlook and Wivenhoe Outlook.
Track: Concrete path and steps and then a short walk across a grassy picnic area. While not signed the track is easy to follow.
Difficulty: The track is suitable for all fitness levels and is wheelchair accessible (Bathersby Lookout with assistance using the path to the right of the park area).
Direction: This is an out-and-back track that returns the way you came.
The trail starts from a small car park at the end of Camp Mountain Road in Mount Nebo, 45 minutes drive northwest of Brisbane.
The car park is ample for how lightly trafficked the location is.
