We love going here to hang out, especially good at night. The coffee shop is really good too, and the gift shop sells a good range of Australian merchandise at affordable prices. It's somewhere we make sure to take visitors who have come to Brisbane for the first time!

Have visited on many an occasion over the years and will continue to do so..always a treat and just love admiring our splendid city from this vantage point! The cafe and surrounds offer a large indoor and outdoor dining/viewing area and can get extremely busy but it's worth it. We enjoyed our morning tea of scones with a caramel tart..delicious....

We went here over the weekend. It was a beautiful day and we had a really good view. Lots of people there but didn't feel too crowded. Prices at the cafe were reasonable.

Can be a little bit cooler then other places especially if its windy. A bit hard to find a close-by parking spot. Good to take visitors over for picturesque photos of Brisbane and the river especially on a good visibility day.

Views at incredible on a sunny day! A single ticket from the city costs $5.60 and they don't do returns so you have to pay the same fare both ways but is only 30-40 minutes on the bus traffic dependent, you can get the 471 bus from Adelaide street which is pretty convenient. However the buses only come once and... More

We visited Mt Coot-tha lookout in the evening. The view from the top is amazing. The lights of Brisbane spread out below, makes for a breathtaking sight. The site was very busy - lots of people and not many car parks! We stayed for a warm drink and a cake at the lively cafe. Great location!

Great place to go with visitors If its cold elsewhere its colder on the mountain. Take a flask & blankets if you think you will be there for a while - especially at night The telescope machines swallow up two dollar coins in moments - bit of a rip off. Restaurant & Cafe aren't open late so grab fast food... More

This is a place where Brisbane locals like to go to unwind and take in the beautiful site of the city. Sit down and enjoy a hot chocolate or coffee, or eat at the beautiful restaurant. Not exactly cheap, and smaller portions but beautiful flavours.
