One of the best land-forms in the region, the shape is so distinctive and dominates the region from any direction. Had dinner at Wasabi in Noosa Sound and the view of Mount Cooroy from such a distance was amazing. Quite spectacular in the early evening...More

Amazing landform and even more appealing when you can see the amazing cloud formations at sunset. Wonderful from any direction including from the Noosa River but special from close up. Although not normally open to the public (access is only available through public property), it...More

Disappointing, closed to the public. I rang the owners who said it is closed to the public. I wonder how it is possible that a significant mountain so close to a large population centre can be owned by someone.

Most people think of Glasshouse or Mount Coolum but this is a more interesting land-form, one of 7 volcanic plugs in the region, it has a wonderful conical shape that stands out from any direction.

Climbing this mountain is challenging as the paths are not well defined and you need someone who knows the track. The views from the top are glorious. Go early in the morning so you can descend early in hot weather and take plenty of water...More

Love it from any direction or viewing - spent a day cruising the river and no matter where we travelled, this volcanic plug dominated the landscape - a beautiful "mountain" which is such a contrast to the coastal sights.
