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

Ride, Sip & Savour Ocean View QLD

I hadn't ridden for around 20 years but had missed horse riding greatly as it was a passion of my younger self. The 5 hour ride was great as it gives you time to get into the groove or riding and build your confidence back up. By the end of the ride we were trotting And cantering. Slickers staff were wonderful and gave each of us riders the time to choose when we felt confident to go at faster pace. It was such a great day out, wonderful views and scenery and lunch at Oceanview winery was delicious. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Gheerulla Falls via Sam Kelly Rd Mapleton National Park QLD

Sun 23rd May 2021 | Chris J

Gheerulla Falls is a hike that I have been wanting to do for a while now. The AW Leaders, Caron & Kat are very experienced hikers and have a knack for making everyone feel comfortable from the outset. The track followed a creek for a lot of the way and the falls were actually falling. There is a very large swimming hole at the bottom of the falls but it was a cool day, so no one went for a swim. Thanks AW. All in all an exceptional day.
