More Info

Don't miss the 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!

Be greeted upon entry with an avenue of mature hoop pine (Auracaria cunnninghamii) and South Queensland kauri (Agathis robusta) before the parklands opens into manicured lawns. 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, and for a little adventure you can set off on the escarpment walking trails to the nearby waterfall or take on the challenge of the Table Top Mountain walk.

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.
