Mount Coolum

Dome-shaped Mount Coolum within Mount Coolum National Park is a Sunshine Coast icon and almost looks like a mini version of Uluru, from a distance.

Climbing Mount Coolum is a must do when you visit Coolum as it provides absolutely stunning 360 degree views of the entire coast including Point Cartwright and the Glass House Mountains to the south, the Blackall Range to the west, and Noosa Heads to the north.

A moderate fitness level is required to walk the 800m track; however, if you’re not fit, the views only half way up are also spectacular.   If you do wish to climb to the top of the summit it takes between 30 minutes to an hour depending on how many times you stop to enjoy the view and hydrate along the way!

Mount Coolum is known for its diverse vegetation and while beautiful at all times of the day, the sunsets are especially magical.  Climbing Mount Coolum is also worthwhile during the whale watching season.

This activity is popular for travellers, families and fitness fanatics alike so it can be quite busy at peak times during the weekends.
