Mount Coot-tha Summit Track
This easy two-kilometre path will reward you with sweeping views over Brisbane.
May 22, 2020
People have been visiting Mount Coot-tha Lookout for more than 100 years. This splendid spot comes with some breathtaking vistas over Brisbane and, beyond that, Moreton Island. Plus, it's only seven kilometres west of the CBD so there's no excuse. You can drive, catch a free shuttle bus or even arrive by helicopter if that's more your speed. Once on foot, follow the Mount Coot-tha Summit Track, which begins at JC Slaughter Falls and travels along an easy two-kilometre path. Return the same way or, for a bit of added adventure, choose the three-kilometre Magohany Trail, which loops back around to JC Slaughter Falls.
