Park at Mt Tempest. Listed as a 4-6 hour return hike but i completed it in 2.5 hours as a fit solo walker.
All sand being located on Moreton Island and you certainly work the calves as a result! Some elevation but nothing major. Some good views to the Pacific Ocean when your high enogh on some of the climbs.
Great walk full of birds and lizards running around the place with no sight of snakes the day I walked. Good thing to do when tour living on the island 🌴
