Mt Tibrogargan


Mount Tibrogargan walking circuit is located within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Volcanic peaks tower above the surrounding landscape are so significant; they are listed on the Queensland and National Heritage Register as a landscape of national significance. Walking tracks, ranging from easy to very challenging, lead through open forests to lookouts offering panoramic views. Named by Cook during his voyage along Australia's east coast, they are rhyolitic volcanic plugs left by volcanic activity millions of years ago. This area has special significance for the Gubbi Gubbi Aboriginal people. Tibrogargan walking circuit (800 metres to the Mountain View lookout, 3.3 kilometres for the complete circuit) begins from the northern end of the Mount Tibrogargan car park. Short walk leads up to the Mountain View lookout with views over Mount Beerwah, Mount Coonowrin, Mount Tibberoowuccum and Mount Tunbubudla. Follow the walking track around the base of Mount Tibrogargan through casuarina groves, open eucalypt and melaleuca forests. The track provides some great views of Mount Tibrogargan. Peregrine falcons are often seen soaring above this area. Allow one and a half hours to complete this circuit of a moderate grade. Allow ten minutes if you prefer to walk to Mountain View lookout.
