Better to visit at night

While the views are not as impressive as Mt Coot tha in my opinion, this is still a nice place to visit at night. There is seating available and parking is not usually an issue.

This place has been a best place to watch the city view of Brisbane in both day and night time. I think it's better than Mt.Cootha. Not too many visitors and tour there.

Been a year or two since my last visit. Glad to see Brisbane City Council upgrading with public toilets and extra seating to be open soon. Shame the coffee shop is closed. Great views, excellent walking tracks and a different perspective from Mt Coot-tha. Will return when upgrade completed.

Mt Gravatt Lookout is the one place in Brisbane to take in a 360 degree view of the sprawling city, unlike its competition - Mt Coot-tha. Bike riders and walkers alike regularly ascend the southside mountain. There is parking at the summit to stop and take in the views. What it really lacks is a place to stop and have... More

Mt Coot-tha without the grandeur would be a great way to describe this lookout. The lookout is located about half hour drive from the city and 5-10 minutes from Mt Gravatt shopping centre. The peak is best reached by car though you could choose to cycle. Parking is available onsite. The view overall is okay with a northward view of... More

Great views across the city and out to Morton Bay. Unfortunately the café that used to be there has now closed so there is nothing there but the view. Nice if you want solitude

There is a good walking track that takes you through lovely wooded vegetation. It's takes about 15 - 20 mins to reach the top. Great views of the city and mountains that line the west of Brisbane. Anytime of the day is good to walk but if you can make it for sunrise it is simply beautiful. On a side... More

Been to the lookout many times and it is magnificent - easy parking also. Another matter is the restaurant. Seems to have opening hours to suit the staff when they turn up! When we have struck it lucky and dined here the food was fair but the staff seemed very amateurish but quite pleasant. I think the establishment needs a... More
