Mt Tibberoowuccum

 (Sunshine Coast)

A walk around the mountain with a nice ascent.

Getting there

From the Bruce Highway turn into Steve Irwin Drive and turn left just after Mt Tibrogargan over some railway lines into Barrs Rd. Follow this past Mt Tibrogargan carpark to the next carpark about 800m.

Route/Trail notes

From the carpark follow the firetrail with signs for Trachyte circuit. This goes in a westerly direction. The mountain is kept on your right. Follow the firetrail till you get to the western side of the mountain and look for a track on your right ascending the mountain. Follow this up for about 15 minutes it will level out keep walking till you get to a rocky dome and an easy scramble to the top. Excellent views from here. To descend retrace your steps and when back at the firetrail  either turn left or right and folow trails around the base in either direction till back at car. On the Northern side i found the second to last firetrail turn was the best.

Did this walk after Mt Tibrogargan. Left Mt Tibrogargan carpark and jogged to the circuit carpark. Continued along walking track to 4WD track. Turned right and followed 4WD track until a junction with a 4WD track on right. Took this track. Quite steep. 4WD track suddenly stops at top of steep section with no obvious turnaround point for 4WD's. Guess they have to reverse back down. Followed goat track from there, quite overgrown and hard to discern. Met up with more obvious track on ridgeline and followed ridge to summit. Great views of Tibrogargan, Beerwah and Coonowrin. On return journey followed more obvious track all the way down to 4wD track, turned left and retraced my route to walking circuit walk where I continued on circuit to Jack Ferris lookout and back around to the base of Tibrogargan and back to carpark. A walk less trodden and a different outlook on the glasshouses well worth doing.

Loved this walk. Great views with some good up and down sections. Will do again.

The Northern track has now been marked by a pile of rocks.
So from the car park, head back out to Barrs rd., take a left and walk one hundred metres until you find the fire trail. Follow the firetrail for 500 or so metres and keep an eye out for a pile of rocks on the left hand bank.

Fast becoming one of my favourite walks. I have never seen another person on the track except for the 4wds on the fire trail

We found the 1st track was too over grown to get to the summit so we kept walking around to the right up the two slippery 4x4 hills. There was an obvious sign and track to follow. Fron the sign it took up 10mins to reach the top. At the top we found another track on the right which takes you down through the bush which was mostly obvious to follow. This track came out along another fire trail. We took the first left and followed this to Barrs Road then turned right and headed to the carpark which is a few minutes away. This 2nd track would be a little difficult to find heading up and was also quite steep so going down was the best option for us.

This is ground zero of the Glasshouse mountains. A 360 degree view to all the other mountains. Stunning views. Well worth the effort.

An excellent morning jaunt. From the top you can see people climbing Tibrogargan.
