Mt Gravatt Outlook is a cool drive but remember other people drive up and down there also. It's an OK view but generally it's just f***tards in silvias blasting out horrible RnB trying oh so very hard to be gansta.

A few lookouts on the way up/down if you want to have a break.

Also voted Mt Nebo/Glorious, but take it easy if you've not been there before.

Otherwise Dayboro out to Mt Mee is also good too.

I hate wankers that put s*** on the road up cootha so they can drift more easily, I drove up there one night not all that fast then all of a sudden on one corner I was facing the drop off and my car was going sideways. Looked like some shutkhunt had put diesel on the road or spilled oil or something. Wanna drift? F*** off to a skid pan.

Also voted Mt Nebo/Glorious, but take it easy if you've not been there before.

S*** yeah, first time I drove up there at night the speed limit is what, 80? F*** that noise I was alone & not holding anyone up, I wasn't game to go over 40

++ for krowbar's maps, I was going to suggest the same
Otherwise pick a different kind of place along the coastline you wouldn't normally go, like wynnum

Well another car lost it in the same spot but ended up facing the opposite direction (at the cliff wall, I ended up facing the sheer drop off) so I assume there was something on the road whether it was put there intentionally or not I can't say for sure.

Bit out of Brisbane, but Mt Tambourine's a good drive. Bonus points if you keep on going down the other side, then up O'Reilly's (tho that gets crazy narrow at points and isn't so great if you don't like heights)

View Larger Map

Even further is the Nerang-Murwillumbah Rd, which goes past Hinze Dam and Natural Bridge on down across the border to Murwillumbah.

Coming down the back side of Mt. Glorious one night (~2am) I came across two guys who flagged me down with a torch. Pulled up and saw a heavily modded AE86 on it's roof resting up against a guard rail right next to a massive drop off. The only reason the roof stopped collapsing was because it hit the top of the drivers headrest.

I enquired if they needed help, they were fine, already had a mate coming with a tow-truck to pick them up before any cops came along (they hoped), so I hung around for a little bit while my brakes cooled then headed off just that bit slower knowing how easily that s*** happens (apparently he wasn't going that fast around, he just went a bit wide, hit the wall and flipped it.

What really suprised me about that run was that my passenger was a girl who had never really ridden with me before. At first I was a bit tentative to see her reaction but by the end of the run she hadn't said a single word nor seemed the least bit worried.

Decided to do the glorious route, even though i've been around it a hundred times on a bike ;). Only locked twice under braking!

Still better on a bike i gotta admit haha.

Mt Gravatt Outlook is a cool drive
Haha really? I used to live not far off the bottom of the mountain and that was the s***test lookout ever. It was like druggos going up there and "looking out" for cops more than anything.
