Enjoyed the 360 views. Would have liked to have lunch but really overpriced cafeteria. If you take bus from city, be aware last bus back is very early at 4.

It's a quick drive from the city to here. The view is great as you can see all over Brisbane. We got some great photos.

always lovely, great spot to watch the storms roll in and lightening. Some times of the month the moon comes up through the city looking surreal, very cool.

I have been to Mount Coot-tha before, but this day the weather was perfect for it. There wasn't a cloud anywhere and the temps were comfortable. I love the views of the city from up there.

Mt Coot tha is only just around the corner from where we live in Brisbane and is by far one of our favourite places, either to walk, talk or drink and eat. It is a must see if your have a spare hour or two and would like to take in the scenic view of Brisbane and it's outer suburbs.... More

Brilliant spot to see the whole of Brisbane. The views are gorgeous and can be enjoyed from the lovely restaurant which offers quite good dining options and afternoon tea. A must do in Brisbane.

The best place to see the whole of Brisbane with feet on the ground. Good catering facility serving excellent food and beverages. Combine this with a visit to the botanical gardens close by makes for a good half day out in Brisbane

Lucky for us the day was exceptionally clear and sunny, creating an scenic view from the summit. Tried walking the art track at the bottom but turned back halfway as there were not many signs.
