Let’s start the year off with a "bang" or in this case with the "Pop".. of a champagne cork! 🍾

Join Caron and Kat on the first AW Qld adventure for 2022 - a walk to the top of Mt Ngungun to watch our first sunset of the year.

Once at the summit we will have a glass of bubbly and delicious gourmet platter 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 owls and  koalas, that can be found in the bloodwood and tallow trees along the way.

Mt Ngungun (pronounced noo noo and meaning "black") is approximately 1 hour from Brisbane CBD 

 

Please note: a good quality torch or head torch is must for this event and there is no toilet at the trailhead or carpark.

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.

This walk was such a delight. After raining most of the day, it stopped just as we made our ascent. The clouds parted and the sunset was magnificent. It was such an auspicious way to start the new year. The champagne and the pack of goodies provided was very yummy. The descent in the dusk and dark was amazing as well. Im a convert for sunset walks and will look forward to sunrise one now.
