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.

Backyard Blitz - Secrets of the Swan Perth WA

What a lovely day out. The weather was just about perfect. Cool (not hot) and no rain.

I have done this walk before and I enjoyed the second time just as much as the first time. Jazzy had so much info about the places we were passing. She definitely puts the effort in to keep us informed about our own “Backyard”…..
