Starting from Marshs Road, Beerburrum, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Tibberoowuccum and back, exploring the eucalypt woodland of Glass House Mountains National Park along the way. The magical 360 views from the summit are going to surprise you, making you think why you haven’t cleared this hidden gem of a mountain before. Savor the unimpeded views over Sunshine Coast to the north along with the surrounding Glass house Mountains. The hike is short enough to be of great value, but not so easy that you’ll feel like you were just given the views. In fact, there’s a 5-10 metre rock scrambling part near the peak. Don’t give up on this walk if that scares you though, the views are still available to you from the base of the peak. Come real early and watch the sun rise, or schedule the walk on a full moon to have a completely different experience. Wear grippy shoes and avoid doing this walk under wet conditions to be safe. An insect repellent will come in handy against the mozzies(Australian word for mosquitos). 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
