Mt Seawah is a the first of the massive coastal dunes of the Cooloola Sandmass. It is on the Cooloola Coast and is accessible via the Cooloola Great Walk from Noosa North Shore.
Because of its position it commands excellent views of Boreen Point, Lake Cootharaba, Cooroora Mountain, the Noosa North Shore, Noosa Heads and Noosa National park. Even though it is called a Mountain it is fairly low in elevation.
Along the sandy and generally flat track you will spot a variety of wildflowers including Christmas Bell, Coast Banksia, White Honeysuckle and Flannel Flowers. We will wander over heath clad plains, through coastal woodland & a pristine golden beach.
There is a short climb up to Mt Seawah for the 360 degree views. It is here we will rest and enjoy our lunch (not provided) along with a cup of tea or coffee and a homemade treat (provided).
On the return trip we will divert off the track into the little village of Teewah and use one of the beach access points to head down to the beach where the outgoing tide will have left behind firm wet sand for us to walk on. We can re-enter the track or walk back along the beach to the access road to our vehicles.
This hike is 22kms and will take 7-8 hours from start to finish, and a reasonable level of fitness is required
. As it is a full day we will be walking at a suitable endurance pace to ensure everyone stays together as a group. We will meet by 7:45am in the carpark of QPWS Great Sandy Information Centre, Moorindil Street, Tewantin. From here we carpool and share the cost to cross the river via the Tewantin Ferry. The ferry cost is $10 each way per vehicle.
