Time Out says

Walk from the base of Mount Gravatt to the summit on this 2km round trip. Starting at Gertrude Petty Place, walk across Mount Gravatt Outlook Drive and follow the Summit Track signs. There are ferns, creepers and even strangler figs in the sheltered gullies and magnificent larger eucalypts on the heights. Keep your eyes peeled for echidnas and koalas too. The walk isn’t tricky despite the fact you are going uphill, just take your time on the stairs and enjoy an awesome view of the city from the top. There’s a nice cafe up there too if you need an extra reward. You could take the slightly trickier Federation track down to your car for some variety – just pay attention to track junctions and make sure it isn't closed for repairs.
