Mt Coot-Tha Park & Planetarium

A beautiful bushland area close to the city with a scenic lookout giving breathtaking views of Brisbane out to Moreton Bay, is the very scenic Mt Coot-tha. Set amongst beautifully manicured gardens and nestled in the natural bushland of Brisbane Forest Park, is the Summit Restaurant and Bar, Kuta Cafe, Gift Shop and Observation Deck. Interpretive facilities pointing out well-known Brisbane landmarks are located on the observation deck.

It also encompasses the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium and a broad network of great hiking and cycling paths. Mt Coot-tha is a remarkable vantage from which to view Brisbane and beyond, taking a stroll absorbing this fantastic natural recreation reserve and enjoying a picnic lunch or cup of coffee afterwards at the café. I couldn’t think of a more enjoyable way to immerse yourself in nature in Brisbane!

Mt Coot-tha lookout is located at Sir Samuel Griffith Drive, Mt Coot-tha
