Mount Gravatt Outlook Reserve in Mt Gravatt

The basic playground at Mount Gravatt Outlook Reserve is definitely more suited to younger Brisbane Kids; however, the area is fantastic for a bushwalk with bigger kids and family picnics on the large grassy spaces. The views of the city make this an ideal place to take visitors for a birds-eye view of the city and an onsite cafe brings the coffee.

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. While there is a bushwalking opportunity here, the walking trails are potentially hilly and not very accessible for prams or wheelchairs. There are no barbeques at Mount Gravatt Outlook Reserve although there is a kiosk located right next to the playground.
