The Table Top Mountain Toowoomba hike is a 2km, grade 4 return hike located in the Table Top Bushland Reserve, QLD. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Table Top Mountain rises 700m above sea level. The mountain is renowned for its flat peak on which, for some unknown reason, no trees grow. Table Top Park is one of the smaller escarpment parks, but it’s definitely one of the best. Table Top mountain on the edge of Toowoomba, provides views of the Lockyer Valley and surround. The climb itself can be quite demanding with a lot of large steps over the Camel’s Hump and a scramble just before the summit. But the reward at the top, with a circuit all the way around, provides a spectacular vista.

The walk starts at the base of the first hill which is comprised of a lot of large stone steps. This section is quite steep for about 150m. The down section of the first hill is less demanding but you have to climb over medium sized rocks. The face of Tabletop is mostly large lose gravel and exposed rocks towards the summit. There is a circuit at the summit of the mountain that takes you all the way around the mountain top showing off an exceptional view.

About the Region

Table Top Mountain is a park of volcanic origin and located at the eastern-most end of South Street in Toowoomba. Its prominent outline and naturally treeless summit, with its blanket of kangaroo grass and other native grasses, has made Table Top the source of inspiration for generations. Views range from Prince Henry Heights to the north, the Lockyer Valley to the east and the rugged folds of Main Range in the south and the city of Toowoomba in the west. Please leave your pets at home.

Getting There

From Toowoomba follow South Street south until it becomes Tabletop Drive. Continue to follow Tabletop Driver until it turns into a dirt track. At the end of which is the entrance to the walk and areas to park. If you are navigating with Google Maps, it will want to take you to the WRONG end of Tabletop Drive (that’s at the bottom of the range with no access to the mountain), so use coordinates to set navigation point.

Tips

  • The climb is short, but steep and hard.
  • Can be muddy and/or slippery in rain.
  • Have a backback – two hands come in handy with scramble.
  • Lots of unstable and uneven surfaces.
  • May not be suitable for children.
  • The path is not marked, but easy to follow.
