From time to time we seem to have a number of visitors to Brisbane. We used to go to Mt Coottha lookout which is acrosstown for us and very busy and hard to sometimes get a park. We now go to Mt Gravatt lookout, easy to park and easy to work out where everything is. There is a restaurant up... More

Went hiking up to the mountain with 14 friends, went to the kiosk veranda for coffee but buying coffees was not good enough for the staff to let us use their toilets (it's the only toilet on the mountain), we were told that we had also to buy food from the kiosk before we would get access .....unhappy visitors!

Sunday June 22. Thought i'd take my girlfriend up there for our morning coffee and to show her the view. The view is fantastic. Equal to Mt Cootha except for trees blocking the view but that adds to the natural setting. I should go on about the view because the coffee was terrible. Too hot and sour for both of... More

We called in at the Echidna Cafe on Mount Gravatt on our way from the Tamborine Mountains to Brisbane. Our sat nav had a bit of an issue finding it and sent us to the university on the next hill. When we got there, it was well worth it, the views are stunning and the cafe was very good. Nice... More

Good view of brisbane. The price for the coffee is excellent and tastes great. The quality and price of the food way too expensive.

After living in the northern suburbs for 30 years, we chanced upon this lookout when searching for a picnic spot at which to meet our son, who lives on the Gold Coast. We took our 2 small grandchildren with us. We were very impressed by the whole set-up: magnificent view - much better than Mt Coot-tha (from memory), a nice... More

Get up there are see Brisbane from its best perspective. A 360 degree panoramic view lets you understand the scale of the City and why it is built the way it was. You can also envisage how the 2011 floods cause such havoc. Great walks in this place too.

There a great views and it's not too far from the city. There was some wildlife (lizards, birds and butterflies) which I wasn't really expecting. If you want a better look at the city bring some binoculars because the ones at the look out cost $2 a go.
