Visit one of Brisbane’s most popular lookouts and picnic spots and enjoy panoramic views of the Moreton Bay region.

This heavily trafficked location is found at a signed car park off of Mount Nebo Road.

The lookout has sweeping views over the Enoggera Forest Reserve toward Moreton Bay and the Glass House Mountains can also be seen in the distance on a clear day.

There are picnic tables (both sheltered and exposed) and plenty of shady and grassy areas to throw out a picnic rug and relax, as well as barbecues and toilets.

This is a great lookout to view as part of a day trip from Brisbane to Mount Glorious, along with Camp Mountain Lookout, Westridge Outlook and Wivenhoe Outlook.

Track: Concrete paths and steps, however a pathed route to the lookout without steps means this location is wheelchair accessible (assistance may be required).

Difficulty: The track is suitable for all fitness levels and is wheelchair accessible (some assistance may be required).

Direction: This is an out-and-back track that returns the way you came.
