Are Brisbane's best views from up here?

Brisbane is slowly making a name for itself as a beautiful city, with its river winding down to the sea, nearby mountains and bush land fringes. From Mt Nebo in the west to Moreton Bay in the east, there are indeed some rather fantastic views across this town. Which do you think is the best?

Sunrise from Jolly's Lookout?

Jolly's Lookout in D'Aguilar National Park, is a perfect spot to watch sunrise. Only half an hour's drive from the city, close to Mt Nebo Village, many people take a breakfast BBQ to enjoy the first rays of the sun over the city and surrounds.

Mt Coot-tha Lookout?

Mt Coot-tha is an easily accessible and favorite lookout for Brisbane-ites. From the summit, using telescopes provided or with the naked eye, you can enjoy sweeping views across the city, which are quite magic by day or night. While you're there visit the Kuta Cafe, Summit Restaurant or just lick a yummy take away ice cream.


To sit on a park bench at Southbank and gaze across the Brisbane River can be a pleasant and calming exercise. Perhaps it's the reflections in the water? Perhaps it's the proximity of the city, with the water in between you and all the mayhem?

Sunset from Reef Point?

Reef Point is perfectly located to watch sunset. It faces west and it is quite lovely to watch the sun dip behind the Glasshouse Mountains, across Deception Bay. If you're very quiet, you might even see dolphins playing in the waters.

Your local park?

Maybe your local park has the best views in Brisbane? I know there are some pretty good ones about.

It has to be Mt Cootha lookout. Not only is it beautiful and peaceful up there but you can see how the Brisbane River twists around like a snake and why we flood so easily.
