Description

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 summit trail is relatively short but steep in places and may be unstable in some sections. 2.4 kilometres return - allow two to three hours. Warning: this track can become very slippery when wet.

The track is up the southern side of the mountain so it is sheltered most of the way.

Take plenty of drinking water and wear a hat and sunscreen.

This trail is rough and uneven and should only be attempted by fit walkers. Be careful after rain and never walk when it is raining, as the track gets quite slippery.

Take care near the summit and always wear insect repellent in summer.

Take your camera to capture the stunning view from the top!

Further Details:
The Mount Ngungun Track features volcanic peaks, mountain health vegetation, and open eucalypt woodland and costal views. The walk passes through tall open forest with a fern understorey and then climbs steeply uphill. The uphill section requires a good level of fitness. Pace yourself and take care over the steep rocky surface. 360 degree views from the top are spectacular and present a different viewpoint of the surrounding Glass House peaks.
The track is approximately 2.4 kilometres long, has a hard degree of difficulty and should take about two hours. The track is up the southern side of the mountain so it is sheltered most of the way. Take plenty of drinking water and wear a hat and sunscreen. This trail is rough and uneven and should only be attempted by fit walkers with suitable walking shoes with good grip. Be careful after rain as surfaces become dangerously slippery. Walk slowly and take care descending back down steep sections.

How To Get There:
The Glass House Mountains are west of the old highway between Beerburrum and Beerwah. Access to Mount Ngungun and Mount Beerwah is from the Glass House Mountains township via Coonowrin and Fullertons Road. Mount Ngungun is two kilometres from the Glass House Mountains township.
