Lexis Brisbane – Visiting the Beautiful Mount Coot-Tha for NAIDOC Week – 7.07.23

Mount Coottha

A Popular Tourist Attraction… For Good Reasons!

All over Australia, the week beginning the 2nd of July until the 9th marks NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC week is an opportunity for everybody in Australia to learn about First Nations and Indigenous Australian culture, land, and heritage. In honour of this important week, we took a group of our Lexis Brisbane students to the summit of Mount Coot-Tha, a place of significant cultural and historical importance to Australia’s Indigenous Turrbal people.

The name “Coot-Tha” is derived from the Indigenous Aboriginal language, and it is believed to mean “place of honey.” The mountain and its surrounding areas have a rich Indigenous heritage and hold much cultural significance. Mount Coot-Tha offers stunning panoramic views of Brisbane city and its surroundings.

At the summit, there is a lookout called the Mount Coot-Tha Lookout, which provides a breath-taking view of the city skyline, the Brisbane River, and the Moreton Bay region. It is a popular tourist destination for obvious reasons and a great spot for locals and visitors alike to enjoy the beauty of Brisbane.

Australia and it’s natural landmarks are truly a sight to behold and so it was wonderful to share the beauty of Mount Coot-Tha with our wonderful students who were in awe of the incredible view. NAIDOC Week is a wonderful opportunity to appreciate and share the beauty of Australia’s Indigenous land, and we are so blessed to have been able to share that with our Lexis Brisbane students.
