Super easy 10min walk, great views.

I took the advice of another hiker on this site & walked up the Mt Tinbeerwah goat track from Old Tewantin road, this route probably makes the hike a Medium walk & a lot of more fun than just the walk from the carpark to lookout. Trail is well defined so no issues getting lost. Highly recommended

One of my fave areas to explore, I found a great book from Hiking on the Sunshine Coast on FBook that has a tonne of info & maps for walks all over the coast, including Mt Tinbeerwah. @hikingsunshinecoast on Instagram. Check it out :)

Pretty easy walk for a great 360 view.

Nice easy walk to the top, parking is near the top. Dont let the gravel road stop you, you don't need a 4wd its just unsealed in patches.
Wheelchair access to the eastern lookout which has nice views too. Such a great idea

very easy walk. 360-degree views. Child-friendly terrain.

Short and easy. Great for sunrise. As usual watch out for suicidal marsupials.

Such an easy, beautiful walk, not very steep and a fantastic 360° view of the amazing coast. Easy drive to the carpark in our 12 seater bus, toilets in carpark & easily walked up with my 68yr old mother & 2 of my kids (20 & 12yrs). We just live down the road so planning to do this walk on the daily.

Mount Tinbeerwah is very easy to climb and the view is endless.

Short 10 minute walk with great 360 views from the top. Warning, wanted to walk from Old Tewantin road goat track but currently closed. Still satisfied with the amazing sunrise we witnessed.

Easy walk with an amazing view of Noosa and the Sunshine Coast hinterland from the top. A nice place to enjoy a cold beer while you watch the sunset.

Very easy walk on a humid day. Lots of smoke haze from the bushfires but still a beautiful day.

Like others have said this is a very quick and easy walk. Has a fantastic 360 degree view from the top though and excellent for watching thunderstorms approach.

Spectacular views on a clear day! Steep-ish 500m walk from the car park. WORTH IT!

I walked this from Old Tewantin Rd up the Waterfall Goat Track which made it about 5.5km return and a good hike up the mountain. Such a great view from the lookout at the top.

Easy walk...great views. One to bring your grandma on

Very easy walk with great views for watching the sunset.

Lihz on 21 Feb, 2019

Easy walk to the summit, but view is much more than the small effort required.nip out of Noosa for a Gresham’s if fresh air and hinterland and ocean views. Mum grazed her arm trying to scrabble down some rocks!
