Beautiful walk on a glorious day. Great views of the South Burnett region.

I grew up in this area. We have done this walk multiple times with our (now grown up) kids. You need to be at least of average fitness with good knees to get up the stairs at the beginning then it's flat on top (like an upturned boat). We have done it at night as well to go spotlighting for gliders etc. We always see koalas near Daniel's lookout and have seen echidnas, carpet snakes and pademelons in the vine scrub section. Take a picnic up to have and enjoy the views.

Beautiful views. Saw a Koala too! Hardest part of the walk was the steps. It’s been a while since I’ve had a bush walk.

Several trips made up this easy walk now. Starts with a several steps but very easy gradient follows. Beautiful lookout across the area

Took the whole 4 wd club up this mountain. A little incline and then nice and flat with beautiful views at the top. Added another track to the time on the way down but only 50 mins in total return.
Nice easy one for the whole family
