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.

Well if you do not like travelling all the way to Mt Cootha, well this is a better alternative. Its a good place to chill out with a girlfriend which the atmosphere is kinda the same as Mt Cootha. Well the shop is usually closed and at most occations is not open so I would recommend bringing a snack and... More

I have been going there for twenty odd years. Spectacular view (maybe 180-270 degrees) from Bayside, northside, and westside, and ofcourse the CBD. The newest addition is the cafe with indoors and outdoors eating areas. There are even bushwalks for the adventurous ones.

Like most things "stuffed" by the greenies and "do- gooders" the trees now block ninety percent or more of once was a fabulous near all around view. Strangely the only clear view of any substance is from the restaurant?. Didn't the trees also grow in front of the restaurant before it was built and if they did who cut them... More
