Picnic Point Parklands

Picnic Point Parklands is a stunning, must-see location for visitors. Just a short drive from the city’s CBD, the State heritage-listed parklands provide breathtaking panoramic views eastward to Table Top Mountain and the Lockyer Valley. At night, the glow of Brisbane city lights can be seen from the iconic Picnic Point Lookout, perched high on the crest of the Great Dividing Range.

What’s on during Carnival?

Parkland Entertainment will be held on 20 – 23 Sept and again on 29 & 30 Sept.  Bring the family along for musical delights and activities amongst the flowers.

Feeling peckish?

Why not pack a picnic, get up close to nature and enjoy the parkland scenery?  The Picnic Point restaurant is a tasty option, offering stunning views over the valley and a relaxing rest-stop after a busy morning exploring the parklands.  Don’t miss an opportunity to lick your lips around an iconic violet ice cream at Picnic Point café!  Café opens 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8am to 5pm Friday to Sunday.
