Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Sunshine Coast / Glass House Mountains / Mount Ngungun
Mount Ngungun is the sixth tallest of the Glass House Mountains at 253 m. It has a well maintained walking trail to the summit that affords good views. The trail from carpark (with tap) is not as steep as the higher mountains and is open to beginners. The south face contains steeper, unmarked but well known rock climbing routes. When viewed from Moreton Bay it lines up with and is silhouetted by Mount Beerwah and Mt Coonowrin/Crookneck. This was noted by Captain Cook on his first voyage of along the East coast of Australia. It is known as the dingo to the family of the rest of the Glasshouse Mountains.Arrange your visit to Mount Ngungun and discover more family-friendly attractions in Glass House Mountains using our Glass House Mountains day trip tool.

Beautiful views high on the hill. The area is nice for a short walk and you can watch the sunset from the other side of the look out.
Great walk, getting busier these days
