Really enjoyed the drive up to Mt Coot-Tha, and the views of the city and surrounds below. Had a great coffe and cake at the Kuta Cafe. Nice to see a place have a good range of gluten free options.

The view from up at the lookout is wonderful. We used the Big Bus Hop on/off bus twice. A very nice restaurant with reasonable prices is up there too. Be sure and go up there!

This was a wonderful birds eye view looking out over the whole of the city. And a nice drive up to it as well giving a glimpse of bush and trees.

Great place to take tourists to visit, fantastic view. Coffee shop is okay also wasn't great but they are banking on you coming for the view not the food.

Nice to head out for the day, to check out the sites or Brisbane. You can see the Gold Coast and sunny coast from there as well as the mountain rangers there is a return up there with a coffee shop

I travelled by car to the viewpoint and had a little difficulty parking. I picked a busy day. I only went for the view and didn't eat in any of the facilities. The gift shop I found to be very interesting. The view was spectacular and well worth the trip. I have heard that the view is even better at... More

There's a restaurant up top, or you can just grab some ice creams and roam around. There are a few walking tracks and sitting areas, however, I have not used these... More

With limited parking it was a fair hike to the top. No shade at the lookout. meant limited time scanning the view. Many tourists all vying for the same view didn't help. I would definitely be mindful of the time of day next trip when visiting between December and February. Take plenty of water & snacks unless visiting the Summit... More
