Wild Horse Mountain Lookout

Caboolture, Moreton Bay Area

Wild Horse Mountain Lookout stands out against the skyline as one drives north. The turnoff is located 30 kilometres north of Brisbane just off the Bruce Highway near Caboolture . Named after the wild brumbies which roamed the area, Wild horse Mountain stands 123 metres above sea level. Telstra and the Department of Primary Industries jointly provided this wonderful and informative viewing and fire tower platform.

Walk the steep 700 metres paved uphill pathway and when you reach the top be rewarded with breathtaking 360 degree panoramic views across Pumicestone Passage and Bribie and Moreton Islands. The forest stretches below as a sea of green and the unique shape of the Glasshouse Mountains stretches across the horizon. On a clear day you can see to Brisbane. Interpretive boards inform the visitor of the features of the surrounding area, and this is a great spot to take a rest and soak up the view before the leisurely (but steep) stroll back down to the car park. Take your belongings with you and a bottle of water!
