Brisbane Lookout Mount Coot-tha

Mount Coot-tha, Brisbane Area

Brisbane will come at you with riverside vistas around almost every corner, but it takes a short drive from the city centre and a few twists and turns up Sir Samuel Griffith Scenic Drive to find the city's best angle.

Brisbane Lookout Mount Coot-tha provides a remarkable vantage point to view Brisbane and beyond.
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. On a clear day, you can take in striking views of Brisbane City and right out to Moreton Bay. By night, the spectacle switches on with the city lights and star-lit skies.

There are also a handful of bushwalks around the vicinity of the Lookout. 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.
