We’re creating more to see and do on Mt Coot-tha so you can enjoy Brisbane’s beautiful climate while connecting with the people and places that make our city great.

Explore the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha and Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium, ride the many mountain bike trails, take a walk through the forest to one of the many picnic areas, or visit the Mt Coot-tha Summit for an ice cream at the café or meal at the restaurant. Travel the world of plants, the Australian bush and space in this uniquely historic location.

By improving Mt Coot-tha, we’ll protect what we love about this Brisbane icon while creating more to see and do.
