Mount Ngungun (pronounced 'noo noo') is a very popular hike due to its relative ease and fantastic views.

A well defined graded track with some steep sections. The track begins in open forest with a fern understory. Part way up the mountain, there is a great view of Mt Tibrogargan as the track passes a small rock overhang. The summit provides spectacular close-up views of nearby Mt Tibrogargan, Mt Coonowrin and Mt Beerwah.

Getting there:

Follow Steve Irwin Way to the Glasshouse Mountains Township. Follow the road to the west over the railway lines and turn left into Coonowrin Road at the T junction. Then turn right into Fullertons Road just after the State School and along this road to the car park at the base of the mountain.





Route/Trail notes:

A graded path starts from the sign post and information board. Follow the path, which switch backs up the hill till you reach a steep, loose, rocky gully, requiring big steps or light scramble/rock hop up. When you reach the top, it's a good place to have a rest, picnic and the view.

Return by retracing your steps.




Well defined path, easy parking, great summit views. Weekends can get quite busy.

Easy walk. Great for trail running. Awesome views and clear enough to safely enjoy sunrise/sunset with the kidlets

Was a amazing walk, slightly steep parts but over all a great experience and will be going again.

This was #3 of a 6 peaks in one day challenge I did with my daughter, daughter-in-law, and 12yr old granddaughter. An easy walk with some rock scrambling at the top. Spectacular 360degree view from the top. Car park was full so a popular walk.

Did this one this morning with a crew of 7 boys under 10. An easy climb up with a great view. The kids loved it.

This was a fun walk with lots of varying terrain and outlooks.

Everybody does this track, many do it just for training/exercise so it can get busy. Sunrise is often packed up the top. Nice family walk. My 75 year old mother made it up last year. It was slow with lots of stops but she made it! Take water and a snack for the top. It's nice to stay up there for a bit and admire the view.

Nice walk with interesting cave halfway and spectacular views at the top. With picnic and stops for photos 2H. To do in the dry. Watch for lots of birdlife feeding on the grasstree flowers. Very popular.

Great family walk, amazing views, but very busy.

Made the mistake of walking this one absolutely hungover in trackies, gym shoes and a gym shirt. Do not make my mistake haha! However the walk up was a nice challenge and super family friendly with a cool cave view on the way up. The view from the top is quite breath taking and well worth the climb. May sure to bring heaps of water with you as I did not and I struggled a lot a couple days after being super exhausted. But a good walk to do on a day off.

Always a great walk. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are here. It's Friday and we still had trouble getting a park. Today there were even two buses here. Still had a great time though.
