3 km walk to great views
This lovely little 6 km return walk not far from Brisbane provides spectacular views of Samford Valley and out to Morton Island.

The track starts at Manorina car park off Mt Nebo road between Mt Nebo and Mt Glorious. The trail is 3 km over rough but easily navigable paths to the lookout. There is also the small Atrax circuit which can also be used as a side track.

The lookout itself features wide comfortable rocks to relax and enjoy the view. Camping is unfortunately not allowed at the lookout though people sometimes spend the night out there.

I have done this walk both during the day and at night. On a clear day you have fantastic views of the coast; at night you will be able to see the lights of the suburbs and communities north of Brisbane as well as the stars. I am also considering doing this walk in time to watch the sunrise over the coast.

While Mt Nebo is a great picnic spot you are spoiled for choices for great cafes in both Mt Nebo and Mt Glorious. In this regards the hike is an easy excuse to adjourn for coffee cake in a nearby cafe.

A sunrise walk would be good. The Mt Warning Sunrise hike we did recently was brilliant

Nice pics but shame about the obvious spelling error of Moreton Island

Is this walk suitable for young children?
