A hidden gem of a lookout on the northside, with a nice walk through the forest to a stunning view of the city skyline, as well as the D’Aguilar range and Moreton Bay.

This lightly trafficked walk can be accessed via a set of stairs off Constitution Road or from a track in Eildon Hill Reserve on Paling Avenue, in Windsor.

The lookout is perched atop a water reservoir at the summit of Eildon Hill and has wonderful views of the Brisbane city skyline and northern suburbs, as well as the Border Ranges, Cunninghams Gap, D'Aguilar Range and Moreton Bay.

There is a straight track to the lookout, however for those wanting to stretch their legs, the loop track slowly winds around the hill to the summit through lovely bush, with a few more sneaky views over the surrounding suburbs.

Track: Graded and well-signed, the track is easy to follow. It involves a few sets of stairs and a couple of short steep pinches.

Difficulty: The walk is suitable for all fitness levels.

Direction: This walk can be completed as either an out-and-back walk that returns the way it came, or a loop track.
