Amazing un-interupted views of the entire Gold Coast, parking around is unmetered. Great spot to watch whales as they have binoculars up there and also BBQs so a good spot for a BBQ/picnic.

Great views from the top. Can drive to it but you must climb the hill at least once and be rewarded by the view and breeze.
