Mt Coot-tha Brisbane

Mt Coot-tha is a northern suburb of Brisbane . On top of the hill there is a lookout and restaurants overlooking the city.

Looking through the aerial roots of a tree.

There are television towers, an exclusive school, picnic grounds, a planetarium and botanical gardens there also.

In front of the planetarium is a statue of Koustautin Tsiolkovsky 1857-1935 the father of Cosmonautics. He is in a pose of concentration on the stars. The planetarium is surrounded by the Brisbane Botanical Gardens Mt Coot-tha.

  1. Great series of photos...all beautiful...I love the overlook of the city...also love your header shot...

  2. Ah Ma'am Diane. I don't have to be from overseas to not be able to see much of Brissy. How wonderful these photos are. The Japanese Garden does add glamour to your Botanical Garden as it does here in Sydney.

    Well, I have a new home for Today's Flowers meme.

  3. wow what a great work Ms Diane. I love those photos.

  4. simply beautifully captured shots....lovely!

  5. Wow, beautiful gardens. Looks like a wonderful place to visit.

  6. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH! A burgmasia! I have several growing in my yard. But they are a job for me...I have to winter them in my basement. But when they bloom in the summer I am in heaven!


  7. This blog of yours is wonderful. Thanks for sharing all these beautiful photos of really lovely Brisbane city.

  8. What a great place, I would like to visit this place next time we are in Brisbane. Your photos are very good, I just love the man star gazing outside the dome.
    You ask has your dust storm hit us yet. Well no, not in the South island, apparently some has got over to the top of the North island, a big band of rain made all the dust fall in the Tasman sea before it got to us. I had been keen to get some fancy golden sunsets too!

  9. what gorgeous photos, looks like a lovely city. The photo you took of the Japanese Garden gate looks quite like one I took this weekend in a Japanese Garden In Edinburgh

  10. I like the way the dome lattice compliments the palm fronds.

  11. Fabulous photos to show off some of the delights of Brisbane, the sky line is a real sight from up there.

  12. Lots of fabulous photos of Brisbane. I wish you'd start posting again!

  13. Great shots .. I rembember that from Mount Coot-tha at this time of year it is amazing to see how many jacarandas there are spread across the city. I used to visit that part of city often when my in-laws were alive.

  14. So beautiful, all your pictures ! Brisbane must be a very nice city !

  15. Incredibly wonderful series of photos - I love the Japanese Garden shots & the planetarium plants! Beautiful

    Happy Scenic Sunday!

  16. Great pics of Brisbane. My husband went to the planetarium and took photos. I have been but didn't take many photos. One was so long ago. is that water fall at China town still there?
