A must do for any local or visitor to the northern end of the Sunshine Coast – a short distance with stunning 360 degree views – rarely ever busy.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers and wheelchairs and prams(first lookout only~130m) – there are great views to be had even if you can’t negotiate all the cement steps

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: From Tewantin or Noosaville or Cooroy head to the Cooroy Noosa Road. The turn-off to Mount Tinbeerwah is at the top of the hill (on your right going up, on your left just before you come down) – it’s opposite the Tinbeerwah Hall.

Follow this road for about 3 km – there are dirt sections – until you come to the level car park area with an information board and toilets.

The walk starts at the carpark and follows a well-made cement path.

To the end point: The end point is the same as the start point.

HIGHLIGHTS

Another awesome ancient volcanic core with a grandstand 360 degree view after a very short stroll on a genteel paved pathway including handrails and rest seats. Being able to drive almost all the way makes this one ideal for families, young and old.

No where near as well visited as Laguna lookout, it still a very accessible and amazing lookout with views of Mount Coolum, Mount Cooroora, Mount Cooroy, of Lake Cooroibah and Cootharabra and the sandblows of Teewah.

It’s a wonderful place to watch the moon rise or see rock-climbers dangling off the cliffs.

Just be mindful that after rain the rocks can be slippery.

AFTERWARDS
For your next visit you might like to trek there. There are a number of trails that start from the foot of the mountain and take you through forest tracks. One of these starts off McKinnon Drive – approximately 6.5 km away at the crows fly. Or you can start from a point along Tinbeerwah Road to get the heart rate up.

Afterwards you might want to head down Sunrise Drive to the cafes and garden centres at Doonan for something different.
