Mount Ngungun (pronounced 'noo noo')but generally known as "Gun Gun" 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 Tibberoowuccum, 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.




Nice foggy/rainy morning made for a quiet walk and lovely fresh air.

Love this little mountain although there is usually too much foot traffic for my liking. Had a rare occasion this time of being the only ones on the summit.

Made this with Mengyuan, Chunyue, Yuxuan and Lihong. Great view and nice walk, moderate exercise. We were lucky enough to avoid the rain but lots of clouds to provide a cool day during the summer!

Beautiful sunrise from the top of mt ngungun

This walk was enjoyable and interesting. The views at the top are quite special and there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy them, although it was very busy. Most of the walk is shaded and the path is easy to follow.

One of my favourites. Easy walk and great views. Take insect repellent.

Easier than it used to be, no scramble up the ravine anymore

For the first time ever we had the summit to ourselves. Lovely place with excellent views which explains why it’s usually so popular.

Nice incline walk.
Heavily populated track, I went mid week and there were still a ton of people.
Awesome views of aurrounding glassehouse nountains.

One of the best views on the coast. Very scenic and not too steep going up.

Linda on 25 Nov, 2018

Awesome Climb! It's really easy, only took me 20 minuets to get to the top.
