Mount Stuart Lookout

05 Oct Mount Stuart Lookout

Take a drive out west of Townsville, just off Flinders Highway (Stuart Drive) to Mount Stuart Lookout.

The picturesque 9 kilometre winding drive up the rugged mountainside to Rotary Lookout features a nice picnic area with BBQs with panoramic views over Townsville, Cleveland Bay and the Magnetic Islands.

Here you’re sure to run into some wildlife while you’re up here, including a few peacocks strutting their stuff.

If you’re feeling energetic there’s a great bush track that runs around the summit that will provide gorgeous views of the rest of Townsville including Ross Dam and Ross River. The circuit takes about 10 minutes however the track can be a little dangerous so it’s not advised for small children.

For the mountain bike lovers, there are also numerous rocky downhill and enduro bike trails of varying difficulty.
