“Something you would do once (time permitting)”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Great mountain trail to go along. Journey is about 30-45 minutes return if you stop for scenery. The peak is about 70m above sea level with the main trail about 600m. It is something you would do once if you have the time otherwise check out Mt Coolum instead. Much less foot-traffic on this mountain as well.

“Good view but didn't need repeat visits”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

A good view of the coast line and surrounds but had done it before and it lost its newness. The coast is one of Australia's better ones but the whales had gone and there was little other interest. Certainly good families to relax.

“Easy”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

A pleasant walk/climb - worth it for the views - especially to watch the Whales passing by. Suitable for all ages and fitness levels

“Small mountain for beginners”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a wonderful walk for young families, there is a view, places to rest on a rock and most of all the feeling that you have got the kids out into nature without having to drive far. Be warmed if it has been raining it will be very very muddy?

“Great view of the ocean”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Didn't know it was here until I looked through Trip Advisor - have driven past many times without even thinking about what was here.
The catch with Coolum and Peregian is that you do need more than just the beaches and there are some wonderful alternatives. The area is blessed with national parks and this is another good option Great views of the ocean and a lovely walk with the wildflowers. It was the wrong season to see whales but I'll return at the appropriate time
