Lovely place to visit but the parking is a bit of a problem. The views are to die for, even on a cloudy day. Don't miss it.

There are a number of beautiful walks of various lengths and levels of difficulty. We walked from Picnic Point to the top of Tabletop Mountain and back.

A must every time I go to Toowoomba. I visited during Carnival of Flowers and enjoyed the extra flowerings. Views and waterfall were a delight!

The best lookout to head for in Toowoomba. Views to the East seemingly forever. A beautiful well kept shady park and gardens, with plenty of interesting bush walks including a waterfall. A great place to cool down on warmer days, take your picnic with you....More

Great spot to take in the views, beautiful gardens and can grab a coffee and cake. Lots of grassed area and playgrounds so the kids can run around and burn off energy.

No you can’t bring a charcoal bbq. The Toowoomba Regional Council has the barbecues set up so they are in the one area, under shade. This could be a safety issue as it is sometimes windy up there. Just bring yourselves, some... More
