Mt Ngungun – The best spot to watch the Sunset
The Glass House Mountains National Park is noted for its distinctive peaks that tower above the surrounding landscape of the Sunshine Coast. Mt Ngungun (253m high, sixth highest of the Glasshouse Mtns) is an excellent and moderate walk with spectacular views of the other Glasshouse Mountains all the way back to the sea. Formed by volcanic activity millions of years, these ancient rocky outcrops are of special significance to the Gubbi Gubbi Aboriginal people. The Mount Ngungun summit walking track is a 2.8 kilometre trail that begins in open forest and offers great views of Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah. By walking at a steady pace you are able to reach the summit within 30 minutes but there are plenty of things to see along the way. The walk itself is not too hard as the track snakes around the mountain and gradually rises to the top with no major uphill sections.
Make sure you have your camera ready as you’ll find a 360 degree panoramic view of the coast and hinterland at the top! Be sure to take plenty of water, wear supportive boots and sun protection. Definitely recommend climbing Mt Ngungun in the morning before the sun gets too high in the sky or before the sunsets to watch the sun set over the mountain ranges.
