If you are hosting visitors to Brisbane, Mt Cootha Lookout is the best place to take them to see the city. A quick drive up the mountain and on a clear day you can see the sands of Moreton Island. if you're feeling more energetic, there are a range of bush walks up the mountain, some very easy and accessible.

Easy to get to close to city and has a bus service from city and back. Best point to enjoy the Brisbane views and take momentous pics. Also has souvenir shop and coffee lounge.

The food up there is rubbish, so take your own. The view is exceedingly average. The best bit is driving around the top of the 'mountain', away from the hordes.

The Mt Coot-tha lookout gives 180 degree views over Brisbane and surrounds - the winding river, the CBD in the distance and Brisbane suburbs/city. There is a restaurant and gift shop there, though not much parking (though people were coming and going so if you wait a while someone will leave and you can park there). Much recommended look out...

Love Mount Coot-tha. When we have visitors, good stop on the way back from picking visitors up from the airport. Great way for them to start there holiday. Beautiful views, nice coffees and cakes. Also some nice walks if you have the time or energy.

Great view of the city of Brisbane and surrounding suburbs on a clear day. A good spot to take your interstate and overseas visitors. Excellent restaurant and cafe facilities. Gift shop with Australiana souvenirs. Only draw back, parking near the lookout can be difficulty weekends and public holidays.

Brisbane has a beautiful night skyline. Do yourself a favour and pop up to the lookout on a clear night for a wonderful view... Or if your into storms it would be a great vantage point to see an electrical storm.

Love good ol' Coot-tha. When we have visitors, this is one of our favourite spots. Such beautiful views, nice coffees and cakes, and even great food all at your fingertips. Can't really beat that!
