Standing at only 123m high, Wild Horse Mountain isn't exactly going to produce snow anytime soon but the steep 1.4km return walk is well worth it for the fantastic 360 degree view.
Not only can you see most of the other mountains but on a clear day you can easily see Brisbane CBD, Redcliffe, Moreton and Bribie Islands, Moreton Bay, Pumicestone Passage, Calounda, Maroochydore and the Blackall Range.
Years ago there was a bus that left from the nearby service station for those not capable / willing to walk the steep track which admittedly would be a bit hard on dodgy knees but we had a 1 year old wanting to walk it by herself.
It is very easy to get to, it is just off the main highway (Bruce Highway)

The lookout itself is provided by Telstra and the DPI (Department of Primary Industries) and offers a good viewing platform and information (just look up) to the different views.
Some of the Info provided
at the Lookout
Wild Horse Mountain Lookout
My wife and kids took me for a walk up to the summit of for Fathers Day 2012 and we took our pram, so access is obviously no problem although for a wheelchair remember it is steep almost all of the way.
Sorry not sure of the gradient but check out the photos on the right for an idea how steep.
If you know someone who has taken their wheelchair up, please use the contact form to let me know. Or if you walked up please let others know how you found the walk, people (and me) really are interested in your story.
