Mt Edwards is nestled amongst the spectacular scenery of the Scenic Rim, just over an hour’s drive south west of Brisbane and is part of Moogerah Peaks National Park. 

Originally named Mount Banister by explorer John Oxley in 1824 and renamed by Alan Cunningham in 1828 after Lieutenant George Edwards. The name ‘Moogerah’ is the local Ugarapul people’s dialect for ‘place of thunderstorms’. 

This hiking track takes you across Moogerah Dam wall to the summit. With an elevation gain of almost 500m to the top, this walk will get your heart pumping. If you rest often, anyone with a reasonable to moderate level of fitness can complete this walk. 

There is a lookout part-way up the track with views of Little Mt Edwards. This is the halfway mark and a great place to rest before the steep section begins. At the summit, the lookout faces north-east towards Brisbane and the Fassifern Valley and the views from here are spectacular and well worth the effort.

Afterwards you are welcome to linger and enjoy a cuppa and piece of cake/slice.

Please note: There are toilets at our meeting place

This is a Grade 5 hike and only recommended for those that are experienced hikers and have a high degree of fitness
