Came here to check out the view and it was worth it with excellent views to the city and south Brisbane areas from all of the multiple viewing platforms. Super crowded with visitors so had to wait a little bit to get clear photos.

Mount Coot-tha has amazing views across the city and the Gold Coast Hinterland. A must for photographers. Cafe with attached shop, and an excellent restaurant add to the attraction. Well worth a visit.

Great spot for panoramic views of Brisbane in all directions or for solar eclipse and super moon viewing ! When you've had enough of the views - there's a cafe and restaurant nearby for a bite to eat.

One of the better hilltop city lookouts around, visited in the afternoon and would be better at night!

Great place to overlook the River City and to learn a little of history. Many walking tracks of varying levels of difficulty through the surrounding bushland. Souvenir shop caters for the many overseas visitors. A must see
