Where is it: Just head out on Mount Nebo Road from The Gap, 15 minutes’ drive!
What's it all about: A quiet little lookout over the city that’s so easy to get to!
Tell me more: D'Aguilar National Park is one of our favourite places to visit! There is so much to see and so much variety of bushland and wildlife – that’s partly because it’s so big – sometimes it’s hard to know where to start! Camp Mountain Lookout is one of the closest areas of the park from Brisbane - the closest is probably Walkabout Creek, which you need to pass on your way to Camp Mountain Lookout. There’s a sealed road that leads to a small carpark and from there it’s just a short walk past the barbeques, picnic tables and toilet block to get to the viewing platform. You can get some great city views looking out to Moreton Bay – you are noticeably further from the action compared to Mt Coot-tha, but it’s definitely a lot quieter too! A lovely spot for a peaceful barbeque or picnic lunch!
Amenities: Basic facilities, but they serve their purpose well! 👍👍

Summary: A nice and quiet spot to get out into the bush and some lovely views of the city! 👍👍👍
Hints: Plan a picnic or maybe even a loop of Mt Nebo Road, taking in the other look-outs along the way!
