Mt. Coot-tha Tours

star-4
38 Reviews
Mt. Coot-tha
Hovering above Brisbane to its west, Mt Coot-tha offers a natural lookout point with views across the city and the winding Brisbane River all the way to Moreton Bay and the Glass House Mountains on the horizon. At the foot of the mountain, the lush Brisbane Botanic Gardens provide a leafy escape.

The Basics
Join locals at this popular lookout to picnic in the parkland, or walk or cycle along the numerous recreational trails. Just about every sightseeing tour of Brisbane includes a stop at the Mt Coot-tha Lookout, including specialized tours. Take a guided trail run to the top through native bush and parkland. Or, learn about the area’s history on an Australian Aboriginal cultural tour; an Aboriginal Art Trail winds past ancient sites. For the best views of the mountain itself (and even better views of Brisbane), opt for a helicopter flight high above the city.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Mt Coot-tha is a must-see for first-time visitors.
  • Don’t forget your camera; the lookout offers some of the best views in Brisbane.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available from the lookout.
  • Most areas of the Mt Coot-tha lookout are wheelchair- and stroller-accessible.
How to Get There
The lookout is 4 miles (7 kilometers) west of Brisbane’s central business district. Take the Translink Bus 471 from Adelaide Street, a taxi, or a ride-sharing service. If driving by car, you’ll find plenty of free off-street parking.

When to Get There
Mt Coot-tha offers a different experience depending on the time of day you visit. Come during the day to enjoy the outdoor recreation opportunities or a meal at the café or restaurant, or visit at night to take in the sparkling lights of the city.

Brisbane Botanical Gardens
On your way to or from the top of Mt Coot-tha, be sure to stop at the Brisbane Botanical Gardens. This 138-acre (56-hectare) green space is free to enter and includes a Japanese garden, tropical dome, playground, and the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium.
Address: 1012 Sir Samel Griffith Drive, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia QLD 4066, Australia

Discover Mt Cootha Running Tour - 10kmPrivate Sightseeing Tours

Discover Mt Cootha Running Tour - 10km

star-5
If you are wanting to escape the city and get back to nature this trail run is just what you need. Mt Cootha is located just 6km west of Brisbane’s CBD and is loaded with scenic trails and views that stretch for miles. You will soon see why this location is a favourite amongst local runners and walkers alike. Starting and finishing from Simpson Falls Picnic Area this short course option is around 10km. Total elevation is 225m and is pretty much all on well maintained gravel path trails. There is a few stairs along the way and a couple of small bridge crossings. One of the best things on this run is when we do a small detour off the track to head up to the Mt Cootha Summit lookout. From here you will be able to see the skyline of Brisbane and all the way out Moreton Bay. It is one the best vantage points to see all of Brisbane. And if we have time and the group opts for it there is a café at the top for a quick coffee break or ice-cream before we start our descent back down.

It can be easy to miss the forest for the trees when you’re visiting a big city like Brisbane – driving around the city in taxis and buses, it can be easy to forget that there’s more to this metropolis than just skyscrapers and shopping malls. Take in the city from the sky on this scenic helicopter tour from east to west. Fly around the towering suburban mountains Coot-Tha and Gravatt, see the Brisbane River winding through the city center, and get bird’s-eye views of sights like the Gabba and the Kangaroo Point Cliffs.
