Hike to the Top of Mount Ngungun

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
