Mount Gravatt Outlook Reserve – The Fun
Even though Mount Gravatt Outlook Reserve only has a small playground, suited to younger Brisbane Kids, there is much to do in the area and it’s a great spot for a family picnic. The playground includes a Sway Swing that can be accessed in a wheelchair, as well as swings, a climbing net and rockers protected from the sun by a large shade sail. There is grassy space to run around and lots of large shade trees. The walking trails are potentially hilly and not very accessible for prams or wheelchairs. There are no barbeques at Mount Gravatt Outlook Reserve, however there is a kiosk located right next to the playground. There is a native education gardens near to the playground also, though this is a little underwhelming. The view over Brisbane CBD and out to the islands is grand.

Bigger Brisbane Kids can explore the bush walking trails, keeping a lookout for wildlife. Smaller Brisbane Kids will feel like the king of the castle as they survey their kingdom from this high vantage point.
