Dunethin Rock and Lake

Sunshine Coast

A beautiful walk along dirt tracks in the bushland. Start from the Scout Camp, river or Dunethin Rock. It's an easy flat walk to Dunethin Lake and along the riverside. If you want a more challenging walk you can walk up the hill to Dunethin Rock and do a circuit back around to where you started. You can drive right up to Dunethin Rock if you don't feel like walking up the hill. There is a great view to My Coolum and Mt Ninderry from Dunethin Rock. There is a great view of Mt Ninderry from the lake and river too. Apparently you can hire canoes from the Scouts there, however, it needs to be pre-arranged. There are a lot of mosquitoes so make sure you use insect repellent.

I walked along the river and to the lake, however I drove up to the rock. It was really peaceful and I enjoyed it a lot.

Interesting to read interpretive boards that relate how the land was divided after European settlement.
