Getting there:

From Steve Irwin Way, turn west onto Barrs Road, which is half way between Beerwah and Beerburrum. At its junction with Marches Road, you will see the Tibrogargan Picnic Grounds clearly marked to your left.



Route/Trail notes:

From the car park, you can head off clockwise on a well defined track, which leads to the Eastern Face Climb point.

By travelling clockwise, you junction the Trachyte Circuit, which allows you to extend your walk by a further 5.7km.




Did this after finishing Tibberwoocum. A lovely circuit, easy to navigate with signage along the way. Amazing to see Tibrogargan from the base like that and look up and see the little dots that are people abseiling down. Lookouts along the way with info about what mountains you can see in the distance. There are some benches along the way to sit and take in the views. Water is a must like with any track. Pretty easy going with only a few inclines along the way.. mostly at the beginning. A nice walk for kids, saw lots of families out walking this one when I went.

Nice walk. No wildlife at all. Very crowded with school excursion children.

Added this to the Trachyte trail. The view from the base makes you want to climb to the top so I did part of it until I got to a sheer rock face and decided that given my age and fitness decided discretion was the better part of valour. Easy walk around. Part of the bush was burnt out but that made interesting photos.

Easy walk. Part was burnt out from bush fire but parts made good photos on how the forest regenerates

As I type this walk has been ticked 148 times so it's popular, and with good reason. I note other comments suggesting joining the Tibrogargan and Trachyte circuits. Probably a good idea, I was tempted, but mid January in Brisbane (temp 34, humidity 65%) I decided discretion is the better part and just did the walk around Tibrogargan. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk, met a small goanna on the path. Out of curiosity I went up the summit track to the point it starts getting seriously steep, took one look at it and my stomach started hollowing out!! If you're up for it I admire you, it's not for me.

Easy family friendly walk with some really nice lookout points to the mountains nearby.

A great easy walk (with a few stairs) around the base of Tibrogargan. Join it up with the Trachyte Circuit to make it worth your while. The full loop was 7.5km. The Trachyte Circuit was the better one - more birdlife, less people, less screaming kids & a narrower track.

This track reminded me of a highway - there were many people walking it. If you are walking the track to experience wildlife, your chances may not be so good with the amount of people walking it.

Nice easy walk to be in nature. Get there early for a park.

Jeff Nutley on 4 Aug, 2019

Very easy walk, walked the Trachyte circuit also as it was easy to combine the 2. Lovely views and bushland!

Lovely walk at sunset. Easy enough and well signed. Will definitely be back!

Loved this walk quite a few bush steps and plenty of extension walks or climbs to challenge yourself.

Pretty and simple walk around the base of Tibrogargan

Chris M on 22 Apr, 2019

Lovely walk with calm spaces to sit. It’s 5km return from car park.

Did this walk on the weekend pretty simple walk a few good views as you walk around the base... did the first part of the summit trail... which gets steep quick.. it’s a marked track to the first Rock face at least. Turned around after that...too hot in the day... . it’s not easy, plenty of loose Rock and essentially just climbing up a steep rocky path / trail...

Easy walk with a few seats along the way. Good views of surrounding mountains.

Troy on 4 Oct, 2018

Added this on to the end of the Trachyte trail, we worth it. The view from the base makes you want to climb to the top!

1st bushwalk - very easy for an unfit person like ourselves.

Pokey and Sunshine Do Australia on Jun, 2018

Nice relaxing walk, good way to start the morning, would recommend to everyone.

Caleb J. Stanton on 16 May, 2018

After climbing Mt Beerburrum, the kids and I thought a nice, FLAT, leisurely stroll around Mt Tibrogargan would be perfect. The view of the mountain from the lower sides is amazing.
