“nice and simple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Toowoomba isn't on the highest of ranges so the lookout isn't as grand as you might hope. The Picnic Point grounds are made of rolling gardens, some play equipment, walking paths that can go down part way to the valley and one that even extends to a hike up Tabletop (Mountain). There are function rooms and a cafe too, but I found the cafe to be very basic and overpriced.
On a great day, the view is unobscured and rolling hills and farming lands are as far as the eye can see. And you can trace the highway most of its trip back to Brisbane.
Picnic Point gets more than its fair share of good weather, which is a blassing that many other places in Toowoomba must be jealous of.
Nice for family picnics (oddly enough), but BYO food, as the closest shops are a fair distance away.

“For all the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Absolutely beautiful, relaxing and loads of fun for the kids.
Cafe/Restaurant to cater for everyone - pleasant service and food is lovely, they even have an ice cream stand for the kids. Parks are great which there are two, one on the top side the other across the road but if you didn't know it was there you would miss it.
Lovely to have a picnic or bbq with the kids,friends,family.

Stunning views down the valley. The playground has plenty of interesting equipment for the kids. Plenty of tables and benches. No problems with parking.

“Work dinner was great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We had a 2 day work conference here so dinner at the restaurant was also included. The meals were lovely, it was an alternative drop arrangement. I had scallops for entre and steak for mains. The dessert looked lovely, although I didn't have any. Wine was nice, but nothing under $38.50 a bottle I thought was a tad steep (Thankfully the facilitator picked up that tab). Service was great, the wait staff were prompt, and very pleasant.
