Additional Notes Wild Horse Mountain Lookout stands on the top of Wild Horse Mountain 123 metres above sea level. Named after the brumbies that once lived there, Wild Horse Mountain offers a paved track to the lookout from the carpark. The lookout is provided by Telstra and the Department of Primary Industries (Forestry). It serves as a mobile telephone transmitting station, a working fire tower, and an excellent public viewing platform. There are 360-degree views of Pumicestone Passage, coastal plains, the Glass House Mountains and forestry plantations from the sheltered fire tower platform.
