Great spot especially for cyclists to climb a dead end road reducing the amount of traffic. Only downside is there are a couple of guys in cars who feel it's a racetrack who will occasionally overtake on a blind corner.

I used to come here when I was in my late teens. It was a bit of a cuddle spot at night in those days. Now I'm a lot older I wanted to go back to see what had changed. Not with the cuddles but with the view. I had not been here for over 30 years. It was great... More

This place is relatively close to the city. It has a rather good view of the city. I prefer Mt Coot-tha lookout. Compared to there, Mount Gravstt's lookout is blocked by trees, it has almost nothing to do at the top (no coffee shop or stores) and less appealing views. The walking tracks were ok. There are amenities, a small... More

I don't think I've ever found this restaurant open so it's important to check before attending. It's a wonderful place with spectacular views so please do your research and try it.

Lovely view of sunset/city & out to the bay. Has kids playground & interesting historical plaque about history of making the lookout in 1930s. Is popular - we were lucky to get a park. Obviously popular for local cyclists too which is a bit 'interesting' on the narrow road up/down 😳 Clean & tidy with nice gardens & trees

Great spot to sit and enjoy the views in the evening (or any time of the day, but particularly the evening..!), or to get active and walk along the trails or cycle up the mountain. Would be good to see the echidna magic cafe open again however..

Came here just to have a break, very peaceful region, not as packed as Mt Cootha. Nice and easy to access via car.

Great views towards the city and easy access by car. Take your hiking shoes if you want to walk the trails though.

Its a great lookout, with no hotels and missing commercialism it's not similar to Coot-Tha but still does not fail to surprise you. A great view of city from the opposite angle of Coot-tha is good. If you planning for a trip better pack your own food with you. Nice to visit

With the lookout restaurant closed and a little obscure it could be easy to overlook Mount Gravatt Lookout and it will be at your detriment. The view is as good as that of Mount Cootha and less commercial. On the day we visited it was mainly a few locals with their take away lunch yet the views over the city... More
