Mount Coot-tha, Brisbane Area
As you step out onto the observation deck at Brisbane Lookout Mount Coot-tha, the panoramic views of Brisbane City stretching out to Moreton Bay and around to the distant mountains greet you. These spectacular views are only a short drive from the city centre. At night, the city lights and star-lit skies are spread before you.
Set amongst beautifully manicured gardens and nestled in the natural bushland of Brisbane Forest Park, is the Summit Restaurant and Bar, Function Centre, Kuta Cafe, Gift Shop and Observation Deck. Interpretive facilities pointing out well known Brisbane landmarks are located on the observation deck.
Around the vicinity of the Lookout, there are also a handful of bushwalks for the walking enthusiasts. Take the Aboriginal Track down to Slaughter's Falls and keep your eye out for some original Aboriginal art. Mt Coot-tha is also scattered with picnic areas fully equipped with gas barbecues.
