  • Another recommendation from the information desk at the airport and another winner !!! The lookout is just on the outskirts of Brisbane’s cbd so it’s not far away. When you get up there the views back...  more »

  • Mt. Cootha is one of the best places to visit in Brisbane. The picturesque views, the grandeur of Brisbane in a panorama and the company of your loved ones, makes it an amazing experience to dwell in. It is place which is phenomenal to visit, round the year. It has everything to offer for people of any age and status. Additionally, it is being equipped with two good restaurants and bar, which serves quality food and drinks. It's always memorable to have a chilled beer in summer or a hot cup of latte in winter, with some majestic views in front of you. Adding icing to the cake, is the scenic drive, which leads you to 942 ft above sea level. Indeed, a memorable place to relive yourself from the hustle and bustle of the city/sub-urban life, to experience tranquility with nature.
  • Scenic place... Ideal place for family to hang out in weekends. Only issue is parking as we find parking is always fully. Carry your food stuff to enjoy good dinning in open air.
  • Gorgeous place with a great panorama view to Brisbane and its surrounding with multiple levels of small grass terraces to sit or even do picnic on. The parking area is huge, but being a busy place it may be hard to find a spot to park. There is also a gift shop and a a larger restaurant with many various tables with great view. The place is also open at night to enjoy the city lights, but it could be very crowded, so it is not necessary a romantic evening program for a date. Altogether a great place and pretty much a must to see in Brisbane.
  • Spectacular lookout to hangout with mates, where an awesome view of Brisbane and the surrounding metropolitan area can be found. Also has a small restaurant nearby, sunsets and sunrises are particularly attractive. Watch out for snakes though, as some mates will bail and not go to Brisbane with you.
  • I always enjoy coming to this lookout and seeing the view. Especially on a beautiful day or night. It makes you appreciate Brisbane just that little bit more.
