5 great places to enjoy views of the Brisbane skyline

It may not be as recognisable as the New York City skyline, but the collection of high-rise buildings that form the heart of the River City can be just as inspiring.

Comprising of buildings dating as far back as the early 1900s, the Brisbane city skyline of today represents Brisbane's emergence as a new world city.

Whether you're a local Brisbanite or a visitor, choose the breathtaking skyline as the backdrop for your next weekend activity.

To help you pick the perfect vantage point, here are five hot spots to get the best view.

Kangaroo Point Cliffs

Overlooking the Brisbane River, the Kangaroo Point Cliffs is the perfect place to enjoy uninterrupted views of the skyline. Enjoy an early morning run, a barbeque lunch or watch the sunset from the edge of cliffs with the city as your backdrop.

Brisbane CityCat

Next time you're cruising on the river, brave the cold winds at the front of the CityCat to experience your own Titanic moment and take in the beautiful skyline view as you draw closer to Brisbane's heart.

Captain Burke Park

Under the iconic Story Bridge and adjacent to the towering buildings of the CBD, you will find a great riverside picnic spot. Pack a light lunch and take your loved ones to this unique location and enjoy a quiet Sunday between two of Brisbane's most impressive attractions.

South Bank Parklands

Grab a coffee and watch the last of the afternoon rays splash against the cityscape from this peaceful spot along the popular South Bank RiverWalk.

Mount Coot-tha

Enjoy panoramic views of the city 287 metres above sea level. Take in the city centre and surrounds in one breathtaking view. Grab a book, pack a lunch, meet a friend, do whatever you need to do to get yourself to this serene spot. The Mount Coot-tha Lookout is a great place to recharge and refresh before the start of another working week.

A similar view to Mt Coot-tha but closer is from Swann Road, Taringa.

I believe the view from Mt Gravatt lookout rivals that of Mt Cootha
