Wild Horse Mountain Lookout - Caboolture, QLD

Wild Horse Mountain Lookout

Named for the brumbies that once ran free in this area, Wild Horse Mountain stands 123m above sea level. At the top you will find a pavilion and lookout that also serves as a Telstra mobile telephone transmission station. The lookout contains a round quarter deck. Located in the centre is an excellent map of the surrounding countryside with map references etched into handrails running around the side of the pavilion.

Excellent views may be obtained of the Bruce Highway running south towards Brisbane and north towards the Sunshine Coast, across to the Glasshouse Mountains and eastward towards a large body of water known as Pumicestone passage. This water separates Bribie Island from the mainland between Caloundra and Caboolture and is part of Moreton Marine Park that protects important wetlands, flora, fauna and their habitats. The marine park wetlands include salt marsh, seagrass, mangroves, sand banks and mudflats.

The lookout is accessible by veering left off the Bruce Highway at Wild Horse Mountain and then turning right on Johnston Street and following the signs to the car park at the base of the lookout. From here there is a 700m uphill walk to the lookout. The turnoff is approximately 20km north of Caboolture.
