Don’t miss sweeping panoramic views from Toowoomba’s heritage-listed Picnic Point Lookout and Parkland – 160-acres perched high on the crest of the Great Dividing Range, overlooking Main Range and the Lockyer Valley. And if you’ve been before, visit again because no two days are the same!
An avenue of mature hoop pines (Auracaria cunnninghamii) and South Queensland kauris (Agathis robusta) leads to manicured lawns and spectacular escarpment views. Pre-pack a picnic or use the free barbecues and find a quiet patch of grass under a bunya tree, or stop by the cafe and restaurant and take in the views over a coffee or a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s the perfect spot for birdwatching, quiet contemplation or ticking off a bucket-list Toowoomba selfie.
The kids will love the playground and the weekend children’s train. Stretch your legs on the well signed escarpment walking trails – from an easy stroll to the nearby waterfall, to the hour-long Firetail Trail circuit or the challenging Table Top Mountain climb – a beautiful sunrise adventure!
The lower section of the park can also be accessed via Tobruk Memorial Drive and is another ideal location for impressive vistas, picnics or a barbecue.
