Enjoy this green and varied side trail that partly hugs the side of Mount Ninderry.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers wanting an easier route than the summit.

HIGHLIGHTS
Only 10 minutes from Yandina is the Mt Ninderry Bushland Conservation Reserve which covers approx. 150 hectares of a volcanic core. The original Aboriginal people of the Yandina area belonged to the Gubbi Gubbi language group and Ninderry is one of the landforms of the region that feature in Aboriginal myth. Ninderry was a mighty – and as it turned out – vengeful warrior, punished by the spirit God, Beeral, and turned into stone.

If Ninderry summit trail was/is too tough or you still want more, you don’t have to go far for a different feel of the mountainside. Brushing through the ferns below the ridge you can traverse a nicely benched track around to the new estate and back. Surprisingly, parts of this track are a cement path. You’ll go past lots of paper bark trees, bracken and other ferns and healthy-looking grass trees. You might be able to see koalas in the trees as this peak has been identified as being a highly suitable habitat.

AFTERWARDS
Why not head south of the Maroochy River to Dunethin Rock, which offers much closer views over the river. Yandina township is the closest for convenience and attractions including the ginger and macadamia factories, the famous Thai Spirit House restaurant, wonderful organic cafes and a delightful country pub. Here on a Saturday morning – why not check out the local markets!

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: Travelling on the M1 take the Yandina Coolum exit towards the coast. After you cross the Maroochy River turn left into Collins Road.
Travelling on the Sunshine Coast Motorway take the Yandina Coolum exit towards Yandina and turn right into Collins Road just before the river (close to Yandina).
Follow Collins Road to the end and at the T-junction with Ninderry Road, turn right and follow it to about 500 metres before the end where the road forks. Take the right-hand road to Mount Ninderry car park.
Additionally, heading north along Nambour Connection Road, travel through the Yandina town (changes to Farrell Street), before turning right into Ninderry Road.

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

A beautiful family forgiving track that is scenic and dog friendly. Our family (and dogs) thoroughly enjoyed this little adventure as a part of our Mothers Day out which was followed by a lovely lunch in Coolum.
