Went there this morning. It was a nice sunny day so we were a bit surprised and disappointed in the rather hazy views so the clarity waa not as spectacular as we expected. They were pretty good still, with vistas from the airport all along...More

Especially lovely at dawn and dusk. Parking can be a bit tricky at peak times. Apart from the views there is a cafe and a restaurant for a snack or meal.

Views are amazing. Lovely cafe. Parking is horrendous though. The car park needs to be redesigned to allow for high flow traffic.

Get ready for a beautiful sunset. At the time that I went it wasn't really packed but pretty amount of people that made it a little uncomfortable to take pictures. There's a souvenir shop and coffee shop at the place. Small restaurant as well.

The Mt Coot-tha Brisbane lookout attraction is a must see view of Brisbane both night and day. The area of Mt Coot-tha is crisscrossed with wonderful easy walking trails giving a true perspective of Australian eucalypt forest. The lookout at evening shows a wonderful view...More
