Less than 30 minutes drive from the Brisbane CBD and we were on top of the world (well, greater Brisbane at least). But not the best choice to go on a weekend, especially a cool, sunny one! Even though the lookout area is wide, everybody wants to take photos of themselves, and their dear ones, with Brisbane sprawled out in... More

Well worth the drive, best time to get there is about an hour before sunset, if you're into photography best to have a range of focal lengths available as the panorama is great and after dark zooming into city lights is amazing. People were friendy and quickly started chatting, this helped spread the word about the best places and those... More

We drove here since it was too early to check-in to our hotel and got a wonderful view of the city! We highly recommend getting this view of the city if possible!

spectacular views of Brisbane on a clear day or at night for the lights or even a storm sweeping across the land. They have a cafe and a restaurant and a souvenir shop.

It is worth going here for the view over Brisbane. On a good day, you can see as far as Morton Island. The cafe is ok for a light lunch, but we didn't find anything we would like to eat on the restaurant menu. This is a shame as a few years back, this was a great restaurant. While in... More

What a beautiful view of the city. Well worth the trip. Brisbane is a city that is clean and from this lookout you can see for miles and miles.

For the best views of Brisbane (bar those from a plane) this lookout is the place to go. The restaurant here is highly rated and the views are incredible of the city. Parking is limited. Recommended.

Have been a couple times to show visitors and was lucky enough one Saturday night to have a couple guys up there with their telescopes that were happy to show us a few different planets for free which was great to see.

The view from Mount Coot-tha is spectacular. You can see over all the city and also Morten bay. It is a great place for a coffee or lunch and a must do if showing visitors around Brisbane.
