Drove to top of Mount for view from Lookout. Excellent view of Brisbane and mountains beyond. Liked the Brisbane River that was laid out in the tile floor of the lookout. It shows the many twists and turns in the river as it goes through Brisbane. Good explanations and what is being looked at in the distance.

We stopped briefly at the lookout travelling into Brisbane ftom Toowoomba. Even in the rain shower, which was very refreshing,the views of the city were fantastic . Our stop was brief and there is so much more with the walks available to explore.

Wonderful views over Brisbane but very crowded on Saturday. Had lunch at cafe and food was ordinary. Coffee not bad and gelato good when it was 34 degrees. Would recommend early or late visit, but probably not lunch at the cafe.

A great vantage point for checking out Brisbane. Usually very packed with tourists and day trippers so be prepared to have trouble finding a car park. Coffee shops and restaurants do a good trade and have a good variety of food to appeal to all tastes. Watch as you are heading up the mountain as it is a ridiculously low... More

This is a delightful little spot to see the whole of Brisbane. At the top is a large restaurant so you get get drinks, food, ice cream. There is parking. Warning - there no seating other than in the restaurant. You can't picnic here which is a shame. You can however at the nearby slaughter falls. There are lots of... More

Not really anything here except an amazing view and a bar/cafe. Glad we got to see it but if you don't make it, don't shoot yourself - there are plenty more interesting places in Brisbane.

Perfect picnic spot. Bring a blanket, a drink and snack. Lay out the blanket on the grassy patch below the main viewing area and enjoy a nice picnic overlooking views of the cityscape. It is a busy place, but there is always room. Parking is always a pain, so keep circling till a spot is found, sometimes you get lucky... More

Great place and enhancting views for relaxed evening coffees/ice creams. Good if you are just looking to step out of the house into the nature for peace.
