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 Mount Ngungun summit walk 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 volcanic peaks-Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah-and a 360° panoramic view of the coast and hinterland.

The 2.8 kilometre track is classed as a grade 4 walking track. Visitors need a moderate level of fitness and ankle-supporting footwear. Take plenty of drinking water and wear a hat and sunscreen. Allow about two hours to complete the walk.

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.

Walk Hints

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!

Best Time To Go

Do this walk early in the morning and enjoy the wildflowers in spring.
