Great place to overlook the River City and to learn a little of history. Many walking tracks of varying levels of difficulty through the surrounding bushland. Souvenir shop caters for the many overseas visitors. A must see

Mt Coot-tha is a great relaxing spot with great views of Brisbane, both during the day and night time. Even before you get to the top, there are varying locations where you can stop and enjoy the scenery. Simply put, a beautiful location.
