Great walk through the rainforest.
Definitely stop at the cave on the way up for a peak, also the hole in the ground lookout which is like a massive forever drop into this cylindrical hole, so cool.
The views from the actual lookout are amazing
Mt Rooper/ Swamp Bay (Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday)

Nice little walk up to Mt Rooper, Once you get through the single file slightly overgrown track you make it high enough to catch the sea breeze from the harbour. View over to South Mole and Daydream Island from the top.
Swamp Bay was like another world at low tide, felt very isolated and unearthly, very interesting.
I recommend heading north over the small rocky headland to the other beach. Watch out for Prickly Pear climbing down the rocks but its amazing on the other side.
Plus seen a dinosaur sized Green Sea Turtle feeding - he hung around for hours as the sun went down.
Nice walk.

we did this mid morning a few days ago (june) and it was delightful, the temperature was perfect as we ascended from the carpark around the west peak, we did see one whip snake that more frightened of us then us of it. we also seen a brushtail possum and its baby. once you head around the well defined track full of typical australian gums to the south side of west peak it gets very 'rainforesty', very moist and cold but beautiful.
you come to a clearing of last ascent with a caution sign about steep drop off, its only 5min from here to reach the summit.
the summit has beautiful views nearly 360 degrees only inhibiting view from the north by the actual summit of mt mitchell
great views of the valley one side, and epic views down into the gap and on to mt barney NP.
its a sheer drop off 90 degrees the entire east face so watch your step.
there is a campsite in the trees at the summit just have to sort yourself through a bit of vine and you can see a little clearing to set up one small tent.
a short but very rewarding climb for the views.
