Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of Mount Beerburrum Access Road, Beerburrum, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Beerburrum via a paved track, featuring a fire tower at the top. You’ll be testing your calves at this steep incline through the eucalypt forest, but the panoramic views of the surrounding Glass House Mountains and the Sunshine Coast are well worth the effort. As you catch your breath and enjoy the scenery, see if you can spot Moreton Island from the fire tower. This can make for a scenic cardio session as well as a slow chilly climb through the woods. Switch things up and come when it’s dark to enjoy the sky full of stars, and look towards Brisbane to see the shimmering lights of the city. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on this walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
