While crowds flock to nearby Jollys Lookout, up on Camp Mountain a much smaller group of picnickers enjoy views of city and bay that are just as spectacular.
There are two entrances to this tract of preserved bushland over the top of sealed off mine tunnels in Ipswich's heart.
Brisbane’s second oldest formal lookout reserve was instigated in 1930 by then mayor William Jolly who thought it a fine place to have a picnic.
A public park from 1874, when a visionary government rejected a proposal to sell it off, Mt Coot-tha with its unrivalled spectacular panoramic views has been Brisbane’s premier attraction ever since.
Since 1893 Mt Gravatt has attracted climbers, after the colonial government of the time deemed the hill’s 132 acres a recreational reserve.
