“Well Worth the Trip”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This excellent lookout is very handy to the city and can be accessed easily by the local bus service (No. 471). The views are sweeping over the entire Brisbane CBD and southern and western hinterland. There are also several walking trails radiating from this point but we didn't go there to walk. What any traveller to this site must do is to take the time between buses (about 1 hour) to sit on the terrace, enjoy the views and have coffee & cake, breakfast or a meal.

“Drive up”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great view, went up at 7pm. The road is dark but the view is great. It was very cold in April and left after around 30mins. Recommended to go in night and day for diff views

“Too popular for its own good”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

The views are great at Mt Coot-tha, but often getting a car park is difficult. Once you are there, there isn't a great deal to keep you there for long. If you get a car park and you're prepared to spend time and money at a cafe there, you may spend longer than 10 minutes there.

“Always a treat”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Every time someone new comes to Brisbane, Mt Coot-tha Lookout is one of our first pit-stops. Heading up there at night is always a nice treat for some sight seeing and a good coffee or ice-cream.
