Merdian Hill , Beerwah State Forest

Sunshine Coast

Left off the Steve Irwin Way before hitting Ewen Maddock on the Old Caloundra Rd , this is a gravel road just a 100 mtrs you will find a spot to park left hand side. Cross the road go past gate and follow the fire track up.
On the side where you park you will notice ( unfortunately ) pink gravity on trees , this seem to be a mountain bike track that runs parralel with the Steve Irwin Way.

Getting there

There's a silver coloured long gate with a few council warning signs , just go past it and follow the track up.

Comments

There was no barbed wire fence at the top today. From the cement pad to the top of the hill was very close. We walked along a few fire trails, all leading to dead ends. Nice walks though - see image.
On the same side as the carpark (opposite side to Meridan hill), we walked along a track that sort of paralleled Steve Irwin Way. It was a bit wet in places, but not impassible. This led to a dirt road, that joins other dirt roads to loop back to Old Caloundra Road, but we returned back the same way to the car.

We didn't see any graffiti on the trees so maybe these have been removed. We saw the barb wire fence near the concrete slab and as there is a large gap in the fence decided to go through up to the top. You don't have too much of a view from the top. You can see a little through the trees but that's about it. We missed a turn on the way down and came out at the turnoff on Steve Erwin Way so we had to walk back on the road.
