  • This place is a definite must-see. The lookout is wonderful, and there is plenty of room to get a good view. You can take a blanket and sit on the grass, and watch day turn to night. Or you can order a coffee and watch it from the cafe, or just watch from where most people do, at the lookout itself.. There is limited parking, so be aware of that. There are toliet facilities and a gift shop. There is also a very nice restaurant if you want to go fancy. I try to write detailed reviews to assist users as much as I can. You can help let me know my review helped you, by pressing the thumbs up, I would really appreciate it.

  • Mt Cook is one of the most iconic place in Brisbane. The whole Brisbane City is visible from here. The complicated turn of Brisbane River can seen from here. Brisbane City council is planning to install a 1 km scenic zipline from summit lookout to Brisbane botanic garden to increase tourist attractions. It also planning to make a suspended bridge where tourists can walk from tree to tree. I can't wait to see that.

  • Was on vacation from United States, this is a must see you can see for miles, but be warned if your driving there isn't much parking here. We went as a group from a cruise ship so didn't have to worry about it. A few restaurants on top, but a lot of people and seating goes fast. Got a lot of great pictures to put on Facebook.

  • Just amazing view of the city from up the hill. Such stunning drive and can see the whole city and River at a glance. Also got a cafe on top with free parking too. Well with driving if in Brisbane as it's just amazing - even the drive up hill

  • Absolutely gorgeous!! The only photos I got all have me or my friends in them though. Would recommend to anyone wanting to experience something a little bit more special then your average dinner or night out. Although it does get quite busy at some points of the day especially Friday and Saturday nights. Thanks :)
