Lookout nestled in the city south

A great alternative to Mt Cootha, far less people. You can take the summit track up to the lookout or park up there and take the track down to Gertrude Petty Place or the... read more

We have been going to this lookout for some years now and unfortunately the whole experience is not very pleasant now. You could walk along the walkways and take pictures of nature but now you cannot do that due to the fitness fanatics running through the forest totally oblivious to their bushland and wildlife right in front of them. .Being...

A great alternative to Mt Cootha, far less people. You can take the summit track up to the lookout or park up there and take the track down to Gertrude Petty Place or the Griffith University Mt Gravatt Campus.

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.

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.

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
