Coffee shop needs to open on weekend. The walk is good and the view is great. There are toilets which is also a bonus but nowhere to eat or drink open. Bit disappointing for tourists.

Nice view of the city. Also nice walks around the mountain. You can drive up to the lookout. There is a cafe there. Nothing really stands out but definitely worth a visit.

We have been to the top of Mount Gravatt hundreds of times over the past 45 years. It used to be a bit creepy and deserted many years ago especially at night but it has all been revamped now and is very safe and attractive....More

Good view of the city and airport direction. Cafe open sometimes but not later at night it seems. Road a little narrow and a few hoons so just be careful especially after dark.

There are some excellent walking tracks up to the top. I parked at the car park off Shire Road (turn at Red Rooster on Logan Rd and follow this street until you see a car park on your left about 100m past the entrance gate)....More

I look forward to my walk up Mt Gravatt every Sunday - the tree cover helps you keep that little bit cooler and the track is well maintained.

Technically no. They close the gates so cars can't get through but if you wanted to, you could still walk through. I wouldn't recommend it though as it is dark and slippery.
