  • We arrived around noon to an amazing free view of Brisbane. Don't be disheartened if the first few car parks are full, there are more around the hill. However, that said, parking is at a premium, so b...  more »
  • Truly a wonderful view of Brisbane but come as the sun goes down and you are in for something magical. The lights come out and it seems like you are in the centre of a fairy tale. Nearly a 360 degree ...  more »

  • 1st time heading up to the lookout with my boys. It's such a beautiful view with a lot of space for multiple photos. Great for large group photos to capture that Brisbane scenery behind you. They have a great Cafe during the day and restaurant for the evening. I'll update my feedback once we head back again for the evening experience. Here are a few photos from our day trip.
  • Where do I start . Took three overseas tourists who came in this morning so while waiting for the hotel to be cleaned and ready take um to Mt coot lookout and have brunch . Four adults and one child . Three chicken salad wraps but one not toasted . A toasted ham n cheese sandwich and a pecan slice with selected non alcohol drinks . $73.00 later a dirty cup for tea to go into at the table and dirty plates with food on . Don't know how the lady bringing it all out missed it all or just didn't care . It made me wonder whether the cups with drink in was clean or not. Chicken wrap was disgusting but felt embarrassed not to eat it . I could make better at home . Second and last time I but anything from up there . Don't mind paying good money for good food but this food was not good . So disappointed .
