We took the 471 bus from town up to the top of the lookout, took a few quick snaps and took the bus down again. The bus comes every hour so you can visit the cafe or go for a walk or grab your selfie and jump back on the same bus, which waits about 5 mins before heading back... More

Stopped briefly to see the views of the city, courtesy of my friend who lives locally. Although we didn't use the facilities there is a cafe, toilets and gift shop. To really appreciate the size and scale of Brisbane this is a must do if you are driving yourself or part of a tour.

We spent a couple of weeks visiting our daughter who lives just outside of Brisbane. My daughter has been unwell and we needed to see and hug her. Amongst other trips, we went to MountCoot-tha. The views are spectacular. My daughter had her puppy with her. We know not everyone loves dogs and her puppy was kept on her lead.... More

The panoramic views of Brisbane and beyond are amazing. We saw this as part of our Brisbane Explorer trip. Great restaurant and gift shop. Well priced food and souvenirs. A must do in Brisbane.

You just have to drive 15 mins from the City Center to reach here - this is the USP of this place. Drive up for a quick coffee, or beer with great views. The view of the CBD from there is impeccable. The state govt/council has maintained this place quite well.

Had lunch at the cafe and enjoyed a wonderful view on a beautiful day. For the view itself, there is no cost. Parking is somewhat limited, but well worth the trip!!
