This short moderately easy walk to the top of Mt Ngungun (pronounced noo noo and meaning "black") passes through beautiful native forests and boasts over 126 species of plants and many native animals and birds including scaly-breasted and rainbow lorikeets.

Once at the summit we will enjoy a glass of bubbly and some delicious nibblies, while enjoying the gorgeous 360° panoramic views of Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin, Mount Beerwah, the coast and hinterland (so don't forget your camera!) as the sunsets and lights up the sky.

When we're ready to return it's torches on, as we make our way back down the trail while keeping an eye out for animals that are more easily seen in the evening including koalas that can be found in the bloodwood and tallow trees along the way.

 

Please note: a good quality torch or head torch is must for this event. Phone torches are not be good enough

Mount Ngungun and the other Glasshouse Mountain peaks, are held sacred by the local Gubbi Gubbi Aboriginal people and was a considered a special meeting place. The mountains themselves are rhyolitic plugs left by volcanic activity millions of years ago. 

Getting there: 

Take the M1 to Elimbah and exit at Steve Irwin Way. Continue along Steve Irwin Way to the Glasshouse Mountains Township.
Follow the road to the west over the railway lines and turn left into Coonowrin Road at the T junction.
Then turn right into Fullertons Road just after the State School. Final meeting point details will be sent on confirmation of booking  
Approximately 1 hour from Brisbane CBD

Sunday Triple Trail Meander Midland WA

Sun 17th October 2021 | Kay W

This was a lovely triple walk. Each one was easy with nice breaks in between to recover if needed. I absolutely loved the last walk and it’s wonderful cascading waterfalls. Meeting at a designated spot in midland and car pooling was a great idea. And the food that was available at the meeting spot was delicious. No need to pre pack your lunch. Yum…..

And as always Jazzy was full of information about the areas we were visiting.

Another Day on Straddie Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island) QLD

Great day, but a very long one. Would have loved to had had a longer walk with BYO lunch at Point Lookout rather than lunch at the pub just because of the time it takes with that many people. Overall fabulous day . Girls always pull out the fantastic goodies for afternoon tea which is so lovely.

This was a great walk - beautiful place to walk. Betty is fantastic - there is never any pressure to try and keep up with the group and so I can walk at my own pace - with Betty keeping a close eye out.

Sue was always at hand when we needed her, and the meals were great. Jazz looked after us all day, and I think I got extra attention because I was old, although I think she will agree that I managed OK. And Leonie was just an extra bonus, especially with her i-phone tips.

Flinders Peak has been on my bucket list for a few years now and I am so glad that I have finally reached the summit. It is not an easy hike but it is challenging in that it is mostly uphill with a rocky ridge to walk along and many more rocks to climb. I loved it and would do it again. Thanks AW for hosting a great day out. As usual, your guides are welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful.
