This is a great spot for getting an all round view of Brisbane. Cafe is pricey and overrated but the view is fab and really nice at night. Reccommend it for visitors to Brisbane.

Watch your speed heading up the mountain, it's a favorite for police radars. The winding roads and full mountain circuit are popular with riders, only a short distance from the CBD. Cafe at the top does a good Devonshire and is certainly worth making some time to visit and indulge.

Definitely worth a visit, the bus up there wasn't that expensive with a Go card (travel card for Brisbane) and the views were great. You can see the whole of Brisbane and there is a nice cafe up there where you can sit and relax and look out.

I have been here many times throughout my life and the views are great, On a clear day you can see the whole City and surrounding suburbs as far as your eye can see. It does get busy at times with tourists which is to be expected, The Cafe has great Ice cream and the restaurant serves a average lunch.... More

Mount Coot-tha Lookout is definitely worth a visit, great panoramic views of Brisbane. A nice spot for taking photos. We were there recently for lunch - the Summit Restaurant is beautiful, has great food & service and, is the ideal place to dine for that special lunch or dinner.

if one visits Brisbane, one must be taken here. This is where you can enjoy a birds eye view of Brisbane. It is a really nice spot to have a picnic. But do bring a jumper on a cloudy day, it gets quite chilly due to the strong winds. It also gets quite crowded, so expect the lookout to be... More

Enjoyed a wonderful visit to the lookout. Saw spectacular views of the city at night. It was very windy when we were there - wee needed jackets. Parking was difficult, as the car park was a bottle-neck. A memorable evening, and well worth the drive up the mountain to see such a spectacular sight.

Best spot in Brisbane for a view of the city. Great for New Years Eve, although the fireworks look a little small from that far away.
