Great views of the surrounding area, easy access, usually quiet and very peaceful. Decent walk if you do the whole thing or take a picnic up half way and enjoy the serenity

We have climbed Mt Coolum and you need to be fairly fit,if not then Emu Mountain May be a good substitute. Just take your time,good shoes and water. At the top you can see from Noosa down to Coolum.

Part of the Noosa National Park, the entrance to the walk is right across from Coolum State High School and is a bit confusing because it doesn’t seem like you can access it but you can. There are a few trails, we entered by trail...More

An easy walk and a good view of the whole coast, not really worth a special diversion but for a vantage point for whale watching, it has a good aspect.
