Mount Inkerman, also known as Inkerman Hill, rises to 219 metres above the flat land of Inkerman. It is a ten minute (11 kilometres) drive from Home Hill and 90 minutes (110 kilometres) drive from Townsville and is well-known for its scenic lookout which offers breathtaking panoramic views of lagoons, Cape Upstart, and the Burdekin Region. You can see Cape Cleveland and Mount Elliot (Bowling Green Bay National Park) directly above Mount Kelly. Alma Creek and Mount Alma (104 m) are also located nearby.
