Visit on a clear day. It's a busy spot & not a lot of parking. We didn't sample the cafe but I suspect it would be a bit pricey.

It won't take long, u will only need 10mins up there. It's beautiful to go in the morning, but more beautiful at night. The cafe is nice but the summit restaurant is over priced and so small potion, u r clearly paying for the view

It's a lookout, close to the city. Expect crowds, lack of parking and a very pricey tourist trap restaurant. There are better, less crowded places in and around Brisbane.

When visiting Brisbane you must visit Mount Coot-Tha Lookout. The view of the city and surrounding suburbs is amazing by day and is beautiful at night with all the city lights. If you like walking there are some great bush walks. At the base of Mount Coot-Tha there are also a lot of picnic grounds where you can have a... More

If you live in Brisbane and have visitors and you are wondering what you are going to do with them, on a clear day by all means drive them up to the top of Mount Coott-tha, park the car, get out of the car, and walk to the lookout (the walk will take you anywhere between 30 seconds and 3... More

Great place to check out how big and expansive Brisbane really is. Even on a reasonably clear day you can see out to Moreton Bay and the Islands. The Coffee shop, Kuta, serves pretty good coffee and food. The Restaurant which is net door to the look out complex is really great and the food there has never disappointed. Quick... More

As the title says, a fantastic lookout point not too far away from Brisbane. Apparently the restaurant is pretty good too but I haven't been there.

its around 10 kms from the main city, a must visit place, you can get the view of the whole city from here, great place for views of the wider Brisbane area, you can see how the river flows within the city and learn how vast the city is.

Not far from the city and easy to find you will find an easy 10 minute climb to the top. on a nice day the views are fantastic with about a 220 view of the region. We could identify land marks like the XXXX Brewery and the Famous Sun Corp Stadium and many more of Brisbane features. The photo submitted... More

This is a great place for views of the wider Brisbane area! It is a quick drive from the city however good luck finding somewhere to park. The downside is EVERYONE smokes at the lookout which ruins the atmosphere.
