Mount Beerburrum (Glass House Mountains)

Medium
1.4km return

Although this is a nice paved track, it is incredibly steep. "Feel the Burn" is an understatement. The views once at the top are fantastic.
Tibrogargan Circuit (Glass House Mountains)

After climbing Mt Beerburrum, the kids and I thought a nice, FLAT, leisurely stroll around Mt Tibrogargan would be perfect. The view of the mountain from the lower sides is amazing.
Mt Cooroora (Sunshine Coast)

This was a challenge but well worth it. We arrived quite early to beat the heat. This is one walk/climb that will prove to you that your fitness isn't exactly at the standard you think it is.
Mt Coochin (East and West Peaks) (Glass House Mountains)

This walk was an interesting one. It took a bit to find the entrance to the walking track, but once located on the southern side behind a gate, we scrambled up to the top and across to the 2nd summit. Our decent was a little less than glamorous as we followed what we thought was an rather ill defined track. It turned out to be an animal track that came out in someones back yard. Thankfully the cars weren't too far away.
The Pyramid (Girraween National Park)

Completed this walk/climb/scramble with my two boys over the school holiday. The short walks through the bush were lovely with a large resident Grey Kangaroo soaking up some sun right beside the track.
The climb to the top was a bit of a challenge and personally, I would avoid following the white marks in some areas and scramble over the rocks instead.
The trip back down was a bit hair raising to begin with (having a heavy back pack on didn't help), and at the time I said I would not do this one again, but now that my nerves have settled, I would do it again.
Granite Arch (Girraween National Park)

Easy

After making our way to the top of The Pyramid, we decided to detour along this track on our way back to the car.
The rock formations are amazing and a nice easy walk for kids.
Mt Warning Summit trail (Mt Warning National Park)

This one was on my Bucket List and has been ever since the cartoon movie "Ferngully - The Last Rainforest" came out in 1992.
I took my boys camping over the school holidays with this climb in mind. I knew it would be hard and cold, but was determined to make it - which we did!!!
That last 400 meters is a killer but well worth it when you reach the top.
What and achievement.
Mount Coolum (Sunshine Coast)

I first climbed this while on school camp back in 1989!!!
This time I brought hubby and the kids.
Great walk that makes you "feel the burn", but well worth is once you get to the top.

This is the 2nd time we have made this walk, this time with hubby in tow.
It is a walk we will do again and again.

I made this walk with my two boys (aged 8 and 11) and loved it. The walk isn't hard, but makes you know you are working. The views are amazing and not only from the top.
