A short 1km hike along a well-maintained walking track will lead you to 360-degree views of the entire Noosa region. More than just a hike, Mt. Tinbeerwah offers a playground for any outdoor hobbyist involved in hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and horse riding.
Where can i park?
Just a short drive from Noosa, you’ll quickly feel immersed in nature. Take the Cooroy-Noosa Road for about 6km before turning onto Mount Tinbeerwah Road. At the end of the road, you’ll find a car park lined with granite boulders. This will serve as a starting point for the activity of your choice.
For hikers or walkers, the Mount Tinbeerwah Lookout Track is an openly exposed trail that’s very easy to climb. It is also accessible to prams and wheelchairs; with a fenced area along the trail ideal for hiking with young children. Without many facilities in the area, be prepared with water and possibly, a picnic. Enjoy refreshments at the top or head further to a fire tower lookout for incredible views.
Mountain bikers can select from trails ranging from easy to difficult on Mt. Tinbeerwah and the Wooroi day-use area. As some trails are often shared with hikers; it will be important to pay attention to signs, maps, and directional paths. You can find these at the Parkyn’s Hut Information Centre in Tewantin. Horseback riding is also permitted on similar firebreak trails and internal roads.
Rock climbers and abseilers will find several anchors and access points on Mt. Tinbeerwah. Climbers must stay behind the safety fence that is adjacent to the lookout track. As with most climbing rules, it’s important to never go alone and follow all safety precautions in the area. Campers will find campgrounds in several of the national parks nearby or can opt to stay in Tewantin or Noosa.
Whether your adventurous spirit ranges from mild to dare-devilish, Mt. Tinbeerwah can satiate most of your outdoor recreational needs. The views alone will make you feel exhilarated at any point of the day; no matter how you chose to get there.
