Mt Tinbeerwah

Sunshine Coast

As the car park is near the summit, it is an easy walk to the fire tower, which provides wonderful 360° views from the north of the Sunshine Coast. There is a lookout which is wheelchair accessible. Getting there...turn right if travelling from Noosa/Tewantin, off the main road and keep going straight through a kind of small housing estate. The road alternates between bitumen and track. You’ll start to ascend and then see a sign for the park. Don’t take the left up covey road.

Maximum Elevation

Getting there:

6km west of Tewantin on the Noosa Cooroy Road, turn north onto Mount Tinbeerwah Road (lookout signposted). Follow the road for 3km (some of which is graded), to the car park at the end.


Route/Trail notes:

From the car park, follow the track up across the granite boulders to the top. Watch for the drop off to the west, which is used by adventurous assailers.



Other References:

Toilets are provided in the car park. The first third of the track is wheelchair accessible.



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.

Very easy walk with great views for watching the sunset.

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!

Great walk with the kids. We could see the cloud moving all around the mountain. Very accessible to most people.

Did this after Mt Cooroora. A very short paved walk. Nice views.

Camping with the kids at Baroon Point, this was an obvious morning's distraction before attempting the Trail Bike Tracks opposite at Tewantin National Park.
Never realised how vertical a drop off there was to the north, until viewed from Mt Cooroy.

beautiful scenery at the top but the walk was too short..

Make this a decent 15km return walk by starting from Gladys and Harry Springs Park, McKinnon Drive. Picnic at the Tinbeerwah lookout with views over Lake Cootharabah, Lake Cooroibah, and Noosa.

Fun little walk with views to Mt Tibro and the glass house region. Very popular with abseilers, 3 separate groups including what appeared to be a school. Highly recommend if you're already in the area.
