Mount Beerwah Summit

Aboriginal people do not climb these mountains out of spiritual respect to Jinibara and Kabi Kabi peoples. They ask that visitors refrain from climbing them for the same reason.

The highest of the Glasshouse Mountains, the Mt Beerwah summit walk is slightly easier than Mt Tibrogargan but still quite challenging. It has extensive views of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and Glasshouse Mountains.

History:
According to Jinibara people’s lore and custom, Beerwah is the ancestral, pregnant mother. As there is nothing more important than a mother giving birth, Jinibara people are taught to respect and protect Mount Beerwah—a deeply spiritual place. Their lore and custom teach them not to climb this mountain out of respect for its great sacredness. Tibrogargan is seen as the father with Ngungun, his faithful dingo, lying at his feet. The mountains around them are their children.



*** IMPORTANT PLEASE READ*****

Pine Gorge and the ‘Shower Room’ (Lower Mcgrory Falls)

Please note that this is not a formed walking trail, is located in a reasonably remote location and that a degree of navigation skills are advised. The walk is best started from the end of the old log haulage road off of Saddle Tree Creek Road (-26.8636213, 151.6332056). From the small dirt patch at the end of the log road near Saddle Tree Creek (enough for a couple of cars to park), follow the main eroded creek bed. There is lantana and fallen trees in this lower section of creek, so a good degree of care should be taken. Using the usually dry creek bed to navigate, you will come to a fork at approximately -26.8663406, 151.6258194. Take the branch to the right, following the creek bed. The vegetation will gradually change from dry eucalyptus scrub and ‘balds’ to wet scrub as you ascend along the creek. If correctly followed, the Saddle Tree Creek bed should gradually begin to contain small permanent pools (even in drier weather). In normal conditions, at this stage the creek will begin to contain running surface water. Bunya Pines with the centuries old characteristic cut out ‘foot holds’ from Aboriginal visitors can be spotted as the only sign of human disturbance. Towards the end there are some small waterfalls that will need to be carefully scaled. The walk will end in a narrow gorge at approximately -26.8752181, 151.6039648, with a fairly impressive waterfall (except during very dry times) giving the illusion of a shower cubicle.

Chermside Hills and Milne Hill Circuit

A surprisingly diverse walk in the heart of the 'burbs' with the ability to totally lose oneself from the hectic pace of modern life, the sounds of traffic, the visual pollution of human settlement. On the two times I have done this walk I have come across a mob of wallabies in different sections of the walk.

Mount Bartle Frere - Eastern Approach

Mount Bartle Frere is Queensland's highest mountain. The eastern approach is a serious undertaking - after the Hannel Spur route up Mount Kosciuszko (1,800m elevation gain), it has the second most elevation gain of any summit in Australia (1,500m). Objective hazards include the boulder field below the summit which, due to the fact that orographic lifting means that the summit spends the majority of time in the cloud, is usually wet and slippery.
