This year the walk opened at 6:30am, $10 per person aged 12 and up..all proceeds for charity. If you start early, the fog/mist/ cloudy haze reduces the clarity of the views at the summits (2 different viewing areas with amazing views) . The temperature was nicer earlier than the humid heat of later in the day (it felt a bit like summer later). If you start later, theres alot more crowds (thousands hike this in one day) and alot of the rocks become loose/ easily dislodged. I saw people slipping and skidding for that reason. It's a bit of a walk to the base of the mountain too, but there was a tractor riding people to and from. Loved being able to do this mountain, and the crowds made the atmosphere more interesting! The festival included a radio station there (I got interviewed :D), food stalls, live music, paid helicopter rides, other stalls from locals, prizes, facepainting, Mt Cooroy merch etc. At 1pm the helicopter dropped 1,000 tennis balls from the sky. You have to walk through rainforest before the mountain base, and children could get a piece of paper and pencil to tick off the animal toys they found hidden by staff in the rainforest. People travelled just for this event, I'll probably attend annually. SES and first aid are on hand, were handy to remove my tick. Saw children of many ages doing this as well as families and older folk. Theres also designated rest areas along the way, as well as portaloos and cold bottled water for purchase before the mountain base. Cooroyrotary.org.au had all the info! Why not do Mt Tinbeerwah while youre in this area? You can drive up 90% of the way up the mountain with only a 10-15 min (non-steep) walk to spectacular 360 degree views!!

Watch out for unstable rocks when stepping on them. Had to walk a bit further from the summit to get a nice view due to all the trees. Take mozzie spray and a marker to add your name to the board up top :)
