I love to go the lookout first thing in the morning and watch the sun rise over Brisbane. There is a coffee shop but it doesn't open until 8ish but a lovely way to sip your coffee and nibble on something yummy from the large selection of goodies in the showcase.

A classic city lookout. Crowded during peak hours, a nightmare to park and expensive venues around. Restrooms wasn't very clean and it doesn't really matter as the view is what you are there for. The view is good, night as day. I would suggest taking the ride in the mountain past the tv-houses. Public transport is available. Don't miss it.

A must do in Brissy, we go regularly just to see the changes around town. It's so close to Brisbane you can clearly see the whole CBD and surrounding suburbs, follow the snake of the Brisbane river and on clear days see for miles. The area itself is well developed with level platforms, seating and some shade. There are binoculars... More

I have been to Mount Coot-tha lookout many times. It is a great place to go for a relaxing afternoon enjoying the view of Brisbane. Highly recommend going at night time to view the lights of Brisbane. The cafe and restaurant there are really good too.

Like all city lookouts. Expansive views, restaurants, difficult parking at peak times. The vista is worthwhile, but little else is. Can be reached by public transport

The views from Mt Coot-tha lookout, especially at night, are excellent. We always take our out of town friends there to get a different perspective on Brisbane. Haven't tried the restaurant but it's reportedly very good.

It was pleasant enough we just had coffee and cake at cafe and not the summit restaurant. The children had ice creams and there was a good variety. Very busy and tables were not cleared and birds were eating food off plates

Mt cootha is a perfect place for lunch or dinner, meals slightly more expensive than cafes in brisbane, you you have fantastic views and the meals are worth it. Great staff, every visit is different. Great if you have visitors.

Can't believe I had been living in brisbane for some time and hadn't bothered to visit. The view is amazing. Top spot for breakfast and enjoy the view. Wished I visited this spot earlier.
