Mt Ninderry

Sunshine Coast

A pleasant walk following a stepped track to a large plateau with two viewing platforms. One covers the west, overlooking Yandina and the Blackall Range, the other is to the east overlooking Mt Coolum.

Total Climb

Getting there:

Turn off the Bruce Highway at Yandina and head west onto the Yandina Coolum Road, away from the mountain. Carry on straight through the roundabout(s) onto Coulson Road and then right along School Road at the railway line. At the end of the road turn right onto Ninderry Road, back over the Highway and up the hill. Follow this till Eucalyptus Circle and look for a cement drive up to the car park on the right.


None found.

Route/Trail notes:

From the car park follow the track to the right up the northern ridge and over the saddle till it reaches a steep rocky stepped section, with two small viewing areas on your left. Just after the second lookout, you take the right fork to the western lookout, then continue across the top of the mountain to the eastern lookout, before heading back down to rejoin the original track.

Alternatively bush bash and rock hop around the top for further views.



Other References/Comments:

It is a shame, that despite the money Sunshine Council have put in here (2017), they have failed to provide a safe viewing area to look south across the Sunshine Coast and the Glass house Mountains, which would be awesome.

Great views on sunset.

Did the walk this morning for the first time. Took about 25 minutes to reach the top. Checked out both east and west lookouts. Well worth the hike up. No crowds unlike Mt.Coolum.

Lovely well defined track taking my husband and I just over an hour to complete the return trip. Beautiful views on a clear day.

Lovely walk! Not too challenging. Quite a view from the Eastern lookout - makes you realise how high up you are!

Naomi Bradley on 2 Jul, 2019

Some of the best views are off the set track, though there is a clear path circling around the top of the mountain.

Enjoyable. Little bit steep, lots of cool rocky steps. Great views of the coast, Mt Coolum and Mt Tinbeerwah. Follow the path around to the west for other viewpoints.

Nice gentle climb. About 1hr30min return. Can take dogs!

First time doing this one was our 5th for the day, it rained for our hike but the paths were good and not slippery pity we missed the view at the top due to the rain.
23min 30 sec up, 21min 46sec down

5/6 in the mountain challenge. Rained the whole way up so really didn't get to see the view at all. Great mountain to climb and will definitely do it again. 23:30 up. 21:46 down.

Steve on 3 Feb, 2019

This one was better than I thought because of the large rocks slightly off the trail that you can get amazing views from! Better views than I expected too! Loved it!! I post photos of my hikes to am based in the Sunshine Coast :)

Hannah MC on Feb, 2019

A great walk with good views of the coast and Hinterland, even better when it's on your back door step!
