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

Great view out over the city. Fantastic in the evening with all the lights. Does have a cafe, but didn't seem to be open, which was strange. Plus a children's play area which was ok, but limited with equipment.

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

Smog and noise was yuck but some of the view was ok. Be careful of belongings and shifty characters up there!

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.
