Mt. Coot-tha Lookout, Brisbane Reviews

  • 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.

  • If you want to go on a picnic and don't know where to go I highly recommend this place, great views and great food too! come here at dawn to see one of the best sunsets of your life. sometimes the astronomy club has viewings too!

  • Great place to view the Brisbane city. Also it would be great to watch the city after the sun goes down. Cafe are good which serves debt coffee and some good gelato. It also has accessible toilets. Nice place to spend an evening.

  • We went to the Summit Restaurant. The food was wonderful... Staff professional... View spectacular (They out a wonderful take aside for our anniversary) The accommodated and allowed us an eight month old baby. The cost was high ($40 - $50per main) expect a $150 - $200 bill. But we felt it was a special night and with it. Parking was insane... Depending on the night parking here is always a real challenge. The gave us a wonderful decorated dessert. If you have something to celebrate... This is the place for it!!

  • Very nice views of Brisbane City and the surrounding areas, with a few nice shops and restaurants at the peak. The food at the top is quite nice and of high quality making it nice to visit for lunch or dinner. The parking in the area is pretty bad however, with only a small amount of spaces available and a bad entry point. This makes it hard to park during peak times so it would usually be easier to walk up during those times. If the parking was improved it would be a much nicer place to visit more often.
