Stunning views over Brisbane, the River and out to the Bay. Excellent food, service and views from Summit Restaurant and for those on more limited budget cafe/bistro also with good view.

Getting there is a bit of a mission. You would need a car to get there. Not sure if public transport goes up there. The view when you get there is worth it. It gives you a panoramic view of Brisbane. The car park is a walk up hill. However if you drive to the very top there is a... More

But I believe it can be true if the love is something else. Late September, early spring of Brisbane, It feels the full summer compared to... More

Worth the trip up for lovely 360 deg views of Brisbane. We ate at the restaurant there. Very tasty food. (actually went Sept 2012...but this site doesn't go back that far. )

The only quiff to be had, would be the visitors; many smoke and leave rubbish behind. The road is also dangerous due to the driving behaviour of visitors, often they would cut into the opposing lanes as they... More

The view from Mt. Coot-tha shows what a large metropolis Brisbane is, especially since the air is clear and we could see for kilometers. We had a very nice lunch at The Summit, the restaurant at the lookout.

This is a must stop for all locals too take their visitors, also once a month the brisbane astronomical society set up their telescopes here for the public to look through and see the planets.
