Mount Ngungun Track
2 Hours  / 2.8 Kilometres



Description

The Mount Ngungun Track is located within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Craggy volcanic peaks tower over a scenic patchwork of pine plantations, bushland and cultivated fields. Many of the peaks are protected in Glass House Mountains National Park. Named by Cook during his epic voyage along Australia's east coast, the Glass House Mountains are rhyolitic volcanic plugs left by volcanic activity millions of years ago. This area has special significance for the Gubbi Gubbi Aboriginal people.

The 2.8 kilometre return Mount Ngungun walking track begins in open forest with a fern understory. 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 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-rocks become very slippery. Walk carefully to avoid dislodging rocks-they might hit walkers or climbers below you. Allow two hours to complete this walk of a moderately difficult grade.
