Location: Near Glasshouse and Beerburrum towns, south of the Sunshine Coast, off Steve Irwin Way.

1. Mount Beerburrum walking track - 1.4km return. Allow around one hour. Access is close to Beerburrum township. A steep paved track leads you to a fire tower which offers great views.

2. Mount Ngungun summit walking track - 2.8km return. Allow about two hours. About 3km from Glasshouse Mountains township via Coonowrin and Fullertons Rds. The track begins in open forest with a fern understorey. Part way up the mountain there is a great view of Mount Tibrogargan and the track passes a small rock overhang. The summit provides spectacular and close-up views of nearby Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah.

Caution: Track passes close to cliff edges - supervise children closely. Take extra care around the summit area in wet weather as rocks become very slippery. Walk carefully to avoid dislodging rocks - they might hit walkers or climbers below you.

3. Mount Tibrogargan

Tibrogargan walking circuit - 800m to the Mountain View lookout; 3.3km for the complete circuit. Allow 10 minutes to the Mountain View lookout or 1hr 30mins for the circuit. The walk begins from the northern end of the Mount Tibrogargan car park. A short walk leads up to the Mountain View lookout with views over Mount Beerwah, Mount Coonowrin, Mount Tibberoowuccum and Mount Tunbubudla. The track continues through casuarina groves, open eucalypt and melaleuca forests. Provides great views of Mount Tibrogargan. Peregrine falcons are often seen soaring above this area.

Trachyte walking circuit - 6km return. Allow 2-3hrs. The circuit leads through open woodland and heathland linking Mount Tibrogargan and Mount Tibberoowuccum. The track includes the Jack Ferris lookout, on Trachyte Ridge, which provides good views of the surrounding peaks. Interpretive signs along the track provide details of the area's special features.

Mount Tibrogargan summit route - 3km return (allow 3-4hrs). Includes steep, near-vertical exposed rock sections that require rock scrambling and climbing skills. Summit routes are suitable for people with a high level of fitness and experience and skills in rock scrambling.
