Mount Ngungun is another peak in the Glasshouse Mountains and is the sixth tallest of the mountains at 253m. We had some time so I took the opportunity to do the short hike to the top of Mount Ngungun. This is a very popular Glass House Mountain hike with quite a few people gathered in the restricted space at the summit.
Mount Ngungun (pronounced ‘noo noo’)but generally known as “Gun Gun” is a very popular hike due to its relative ease and fantastic views.
A well defined graded track with some steep sections. The track begins in open forest with a fern understory. Part way up the mountain, there is a great view of Mt Tibrogargan as the track passes a small rock overhang. The summit provides spectacular close-up views of nearby Mt Tibrogargan, Mt Tibberoowuccum, Mt Coonowrin and Mt Beerwah. It is about 2.6 km to the summit and took about 30 mins.
A map of this walk is available here Glass House Mountains walking tracks and shared trail information and maps
Can get a bit busy at the summit
