Mt. Coot-tha Lookout - Review

Imagine a sea of twinkling lights and a breathtaking view of one of Australia’s best cities! The MT Coo-tha lookout is a great place to spend a few hours gazing at the wonders of Brisbane City.  There are also picnic and barbeque spots that can be used for a family’s day out in the sun. If you’re up to it, take the Aborginal art Trail that gives an interesting peek into their art and culture. A lovely escape from the demanding city life!

Mt. Coot-tha Lookout, Brisbane Reviews

  • Beaut place to take visitors on a clear day, to give them some perspective of the size of the city, the winding Brisbane River, and the hills that surround us. Nice little cafe with really tasty breakfasts and lunches... And an upmarket restaurant too that makes the best of it's location to showcase the views. There are many walks here too, from easy to difficult. Lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon. I prefer afternoons as the sun is behind you for picture taking

  • I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. Went for a morning walk through the bush as I was up in Brisbane early and ended up at the lookout. Really is a great spot and a fantastic view over the city. Would also recommend doing some of the walks up to it instead of driving, a nice experience all round and will do it again

  • Great place to take visitors to Brisbane. You often have to wait a while in a cue at the cafe for ice cream or your coffee. Toilets available. On a really clear day you can see the bay. Also a good place place to have a break on your cycle or walk.

  • Wonderful opportunity to look over the City of Brisbane. Great lookout for photo opportunities & the cafe has good food plus you can even have a beverage. There is a lovely restaurant with the best food & you can sit alfresco or inside when it's a cooler night. But perfect views from all areas.

  • This is the best place to see all of Brisbane, from the high rise buildings to nearly all the suburbs. Also a great base to start or finish bush walks. Great takeaway food place with a variety of foods and ice cream selection to get a scoop of. As well as an up market restaurant for formal meals that also has a function room below it for weddings, parties and other occasions. There is also a tourist shop with quite affordable souvenirs. This includes T-Shirts for as low $19.99, other clothes and the usual - magnets, spoons, pins, plastic and stuffed toys etc. The parking includes space for buses, cars, motorbikes, push bikes and handicap parking. All the shops and restaurants are wheelchair accessible. I found the staff to be very pleasant and exceptionally helping when asked questions. I highly recommend you also travel along the top of the range to visit the nearby parks and bush trails. Also you will be able to see the television towers and TV station headquarters for the major channels (channel 10, channel 9, channel 7, the ABC and SBS) Below the lookout I also recommend you visit two other major attractions of Brisbane - the Botanical Gardens and the Planetarium. Located across the road from the historic Brisbane/Toowong Cemetery. All in all the Mt Coot-tha, Brisbane Look Out is in my opinion a must visit attraction and one of the top five places to visit and experience. But most importantly it is Free 🙂
