Mt Coot-Tha Picnic Spots

Brisbane

The Mt Coot-Tha Forest boasts some of Brisbane's most beautiful bush picnic and BBQ areas, which are also the gateway to a myriad of popular bushwalks.

Tucked well into the bush at the foot of Mt Coot-tha and yet only a short drive from the city, Simpson Falls provides an idyllic gum-shaded expanse of green
Grey Gum Picnic Area is a shady picnic spot on the eastern side of Mt Coot-Tha
This is a beautiful bushy gorge with grassy creek banks for picnics and barbecues, an open air bush chapel and a resident flock of sulphur-crested cockatoos.
Gold Mine Picnic Area on Mt Coot-tha is shaded by towering gum trees with an historic gold mine only a short walk away, and if you're lucky, you may even spot a koala
Silky Oak Picnic Area is a beautiful green space of gently sloping grass, just perfect for laying down the picnic rug for a lazy day out in nature
Hoop Pine Picnic Area is an expansive outdoor space that lies between well-known JC Slaughter Falls Picnic Area and the lesser known Silky Oak Picnic Area
