Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing views of the city! We went during the daytime and it was breathe taking. Worthwhile to visit for 1-2 hours. Would recommend.

Great place to take in the views of the city, chill and have a cuppa. Spend as little or a song as you like. Easy free parking and plenty of walking, if you’re so inclined.

A must to stop by and see just how big Brisbane is. There is also a cafe open early and a bit of history.

On a clear day, you get a good view over the city and beyond. The display panels badly need attention as some are so weather worn as to be illegible.

Great views of course. Average food and very pricey. Friendly efficient service. We had a bowl each of mixed salads…a pasta one and a pumpkin and tomato….nothing special but ok. A small sized bowl. I also had a pot of tea and my companion had a small bottle of juice…$37 total seems a bit much. But we sat outside which was very pleasant.

It was a wonderful experience watching the sunrise from here. It is beautiful to see the sun come up and spread light. Afterwards we had great time enjoying coffee at the cafe. It was a perfect start to a great day.

Great view of Brisbane city. Has a restaurant as well, expensive though. Best thing is that it's free to check out the view.

Awesome views from the top at night. Visited over Easter, few people there but still easy to find a park and somewhere to sit. Bring a picnic blanket

A short 20 min drive from the centre of Brisbane will have you arriving at the summit of Mt Cootha. A cafe has drinks and snacks and they are currently renovating the main dining area. There are excellent views from north to south.

Mt Coot-tha summit is a great place to take in the views across much of Brisbane and beyond. On a clear day one can see the sand dunes of Moreton Island. Whenever we have visitors to Brisbane, the summit is near the top of our list of places to visit.

At the summit is the Summit Cafe where one can purchase a range of drinks, ice creams and many delicious food items.

On this occasion I drove to the summit, where there is a reasonable amount of parking. As well as a bus route to the summit there are also some great walks leading up here.
