Mount Gravatt lookout café provides a panoramic view and inexpensive menu. Service was good and fast, The car park can be busy and the road to the look out is narrow and care is need.

A lovely view of Brisbane and surrounding countryside. A long steep winding road to car park at top which can get full. There are two walks to summit the shorter one about 900m. Shade at top but picnic tables are not undercover. Cafe at top...More

Some great walking trails in the area and a great view. Map at the top wasn’t too helpful, but a very enjoyable activity.

What a beautiful spot! View is superb. Lovely little hideaway. Very busy the day we visited with a number of small groups, possibly for their Christmas get together but the service was friendly and not at all stressed, the coffee was some of the best...More

We walked up from the car park at the bottom of the hill, and followed a couple of tracks up to the summit, where we had a coffee and cake while looking over the Brisbane skyline. Entertained by a range of local birds, including pied...More

I often bring travelers here, for a good quick overview of Brisbane City .. especially since I can point out the Mt Cootha lookout as well

Coffee shop needs to open on weekend. The walk is good and the view is great. There are toilets which is also a bonus but nowhere to eat or drink open. Bit disappointing for tourists.

Nice view of the city. Also nice walks around the mountain. You can drive up to the lookout. There is a cafe there. Nothing really stands out but definitely worth a visit.

Technically no. They close the gates so cars can't get through but if you wanted to, you could still walk through. I wouldn't recommend it though as it is dark and slippery.

Sorry, I have never been up to the lookout at night, however I have never seen the gate closed during daylight hours. My wife and I lived at Mount Gravatt years ago and we have had many walks and drives up the mountain... More
