The views from here are spectacular!! You can see a huge 360 of Brisbane for miles! It's about 20 minutes from the city centre and it definitely worth the drive. It's a popular tourist spot but once you find a space to look out onto...More

We went when the sun was shining and the sky was clear and blue. The view was fantastic, we could see boats on the river and there are several vantage points for you to enjoy. Parking is competitive so get there early.

Great spot to see the city with some info boards around to give some info. Free wifi but expensive busy restaurant and cafe. Keep circling the car park to find a space as people leave regularly.

Visiting Mt Cootha is a 'must' on the list to visit Brisbane. As Brisbane has a very interesting lay out with a river that curls through the city in a random way, the view from Mt Cootha will make it easier to get an overview....More

Go up here when the weather is odd.....When it is foggy you see the towers poking through. When a storm is brewing you can watch it roll in.

The lookout is great for photo opportunities etc. but the botanic gardens are much nicer for the landscape. The gardens are only a few minutes drive from the lookout so you can easily do the look out, botanic gardens and... More

Other than taxi/uber and private tour opertors I believe the only option would be a train to the city, then council bus number 471. It could be just as easy to hire a car from the aiport? The only public transport option... More
