Take the local bus to Mt Coot-tha. The bus ride shows you parts of the city you would not have seen otherwise, and is a cheap way to travel. The lookout is well-maintained and the views over the city and the surrounding areas are awesome....More

A nice place to walk around the bushland surrounding Brisbane and get a good view of the city from the mountain. Great trails for mountain bike riding in this area.

It's a lovely drive up to this look out and plenty of picnic options in the surrounding area. Gives an amazing view of Brisbane. Only down side is the ability to get a park.

Good to get there early to get a parking space. I did the Russell Terrace walk. Not an easy walk as it's very steep on the way back. I loved it. Great fitness activity & then looking out at Brisbane afterwards was nice.
