Owner description: Capture a great overview of Townsville with a visit to Mount Stuart. Providing views overlooking the entire city and across to Magnetic Island and Cleveland Bay, Mount Stuart is a great way for visitors to get their bearings before further exploring Townsville North Queensland. Walk, run, ride or drive to the top of the 9km road, but if you plan to tackle it by foot ensure you have a good level of fitness and plenty of water as it is a steep climb in areas. Once you reach the top of Mount Stuart, enjoy the breezes, relax with a picnic, take in the views or further explore the short bush walks around the area.

Spectacular views of Townsville, just an easy 9km drive from the highway to the look out. Easy car parking, nice short walk track along the top of the mount. Not to be missed.

Most people will need a car unless they are pretty fit. The car park is close to the viewing platform. You get a great view from a safe platform with areas to sit down. You can then walk around to the right of the viewing area for more natural views. It was a lovely place to bring visitors. There was a little rubbish around but it was late on Sunday afternoon so I'm sure it's better at other times

Nice to be able to drive to the top. It’s a fairly long drive but not scary. There is a short loop track at the top. Views to Hinchinbrook island, magnetic island and all of Townsville.

A leisurely drive to the top which gives cool winds and fantastic views , especially at night. Rock climbers use this area too
