My wife and I walked over this hill whilst returning to Kirra beach from Coolangatta there is a fantastic piece of modernism art in the shape of an eagle. Stunning views from this elevated view point.

It is a small but steep climb - and I think climbing is more fun than driving up - followed by breathtaking views West to Surfers Paradise and East along Coolangatta beach.

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.

Worth the short steep walk up here, or drive around the block to access the lovely 180 deg sea view and look right down the esplande of Coolangatta.

Staying or parking at Kirra or Coolangatta take the time to visit the Kirra pagoda which juts out over the sands/sea of Kirra Beach. Remember the camera and a cool drink and take time to absorb the beauty that unfolds!

What a perfect location to see from Surfers Paradise right along to Greenmount Beach. Great breeze most times. Easy parking and convenient to get to.

Yes you can walk, however we visited in pretty inclement weather when we were driving through, so drove up for rain-covered views on the day, however still got some pretty good happy snaps, and it does offer some great views of the beaches. Well worth...More
