Mount Coot-Tha

Mount Coot-Tha (225 metres), Brisbane's most popular vantage-point, is perched on a shoulder of the Taylor Range. Soon after Brisbane was settled, the hill was cleared of thick timber by convicts for a military look out. One tree only was left and it stood for many years, giving to the place the name of "One Tree Hill". "Coot-Tha" is an aboriginal word meaning "place of wild honey".

Mt Coot-Tha is located 7 kms west of Brisbane and occupies one of the most beautiful vantage points from which to view the city and surrounds. Commanding panoramic views over the city of Brisbane and beyond to Moreton Bay and it's islands to the East, and the Glasshouse Mountains and the D'Agilar Range to the West.

From the kiosk, there is a magnificent view of the city and suburbs, extending north-east over Sandgate to Moreton Bay, with the white sandhills of Moreton Island standing out conspicuously. Southward to the Macpherson Range on the New South Wales border and westward to Cunningham's Gap and the main Dividing Range.
