Wild Horse Mountain Lookout

0 out of 5 stars (based on 0 reviews)

View at dusk looking west from Wild Horse Mountain Lookout with Glass House Mountains peaks on the horizon. The lookout has 360 degree views including towards Brisbane, Redcliffe, Moreton Island, Bribie Island, and more

Wild Horse Mountain Lookout is along the Bruce Hwy north of Brisbane. From the parking area, it is a steep walk up a concrete path to the fire tower at the top. It is not as steep as Beerburrum Lookout Brown Sign link if you have been there, but it is still quite a climb going up the 700 metres walk to the tower, 1.4kms return.

The tower has some information to read and views in 360 degrees, 123 metres above sea level. When it is clear you can see Brisbane, Redcliffe, Moreton Island, Bribie Island, and more.

The glasshouse mountains set a nice horizon to the west of Wild Horse Mountain with many of the peaks viewable, including Mt Beerburrum Brown Sign link, Mt Tibrogargan, Mt Coonowrin Brown Sign link, and Mt Ngungun Brown Sign link.

We went there late in the afternoon, and the air was hazy so it wasn’t a good day for great photos. The mosquitos thought it was a great time to be out and swarmed us, so if you are going around dusk insect repellent is highly recommended. A bottle of water would be a good idea too, even though it is a fairly short walk the steepness makes it more tiring.

To get there:

Exit the Bruce Hwy where the Shell service stations are north of the Steve Erwin Way exit. Turn at the brown sign into Johnston Rd. If coming from the south, you will cross over the highway. Continue to Wild House Rd, turning right following the park sign. When you reach the parking area there will be another park sign. The walking track starts at the back of the parking area toward the right-hand side.

When you arrive at the parking area, the sign pointing left for parking can be a little misleading, don’t continue along the road to look for parking, you have already arrived. If you end up on a dirt road you have gone too far.
