I did not about this lookout and without any plan we arrive there because we were driving close when we saw a sign! Definitely it was a beautiful view to Brisbane compared with others.

A great view from the top as you would expect. Take some time and park down the bottom, just on the right as you start to climb. There is a Summit Track that takes about 45 round trip. Stopping at the summit around the half way mark to take in the view.

I went on the hike with a close friend. We spent over an hour hiking on the trail, and we then spent some time on the grass eating fresh strawberries. It wasn't as busy as some other places I've hiked, which made me love it more!

Dropped in here after a trip to the nearby Marietta. Wonderful views over the city, Plenty of parking and relative easy access - just needs a bit off care driving on way up & down as road is quite steep & windy

A not so hidden gem for locals, this look out offers better views of the city than Mt Cootha with only a hand full of the people. You can see the entire city light up at night, watch the sun rise over the ocean, and watch planes come in. Great picnic spot for families, great picnic date spot for couples.

The Mount Gravatt Lookout is a great spot to take in the views of Brisbane and right out to the bay area. The best way to get to the lookout is definitely by one of the many bush walks around Mount Gravatt. Parking at the bottom of the hill and then walking to the top is a great way to... More

I watched Haley's Comet in the sky from here as a child. As with all mountain views, it's AWESOME - especially at sunset!! But the café seems to be NEVER OPEN when it's absolutely packed with people. Evenings are also great on a clear night. TIP: If you go at night, make sure you take a coat/blanket!

Went with my family on a sunny but not hot day. The views from the city are beautiful. We also did a walk around the forest.An easy one as we had a 4 year old walking and a baby being carried. Overall a great way to spend the day!

This is an amazing little place for a great view of the Downtown Central District of Brisbane, A short ride up to the mount, a perfect place for some downtime and views.

Hey I'm 51 this year, Brisbane-ite all my life and this was a new discovery for me. Thanks to The Lovewell Project for a beautiful coffee to go with our view, which is on the opposite side of the city to the view you see from Mt Coot-tha. Looking forward to my next visit!
