Drove up to the top to check out views. Area was small and only one section has good views. Prefer Mt Cootha lookout as more panoramic and spacious. However, cafe is facing nice section but was closed. Would come back again to try the cafe...More

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
