Mt Coonowrin (eldest son) with Mt Beerwah (mum) behind, from Mt Ngungun
Of the 13 peaks in the group generally reffered to as the 'Glasshouse Mountains' Id hazard a guess at Mount Ngungun being the most popular peak to summit.
Its 253m altitude trail is very well worn and highly trafficked, and for good reason. Its definitely the best bang for buck, brilliant views, an expansive and interesting summit to explore and an enticing lovers cave on the way. And its also closest to town (Glasshouse Mountains township). Which if you are ever nearby be sure to visit the information center at the township for fascinating insights into the story of this special part of our landscape. Weve heard whispers about the coming revamp of the Mt Ngungun trail which is very exciting, and an awesome multipeak route too! Definitely a lot of UX opportunities.
We will wrapup this brief writeup on that note so no spoilers, just stay tuned here and on our socials. For now we leave you with a few sunrise images from Mount Ngungun summit. Enjoy.
Where: Glasshouse Mountains township is about 1 hour drive north of Brisbane or 1 hr south of Noosa. The Mt Ngungun trailhead is a few km west on Fullertons rd.
