Have you ever wondered what a volcanic plug looks like? If so, then be sure to head to the Glass House Mountains and set off on the Mount Ngungun Summit Walking Track. Formed by volcanic activity millions of years, these ancient rocky outcrops are of special significance to the Gubbi Gubbi Aboriginal people.
This 2.8 kilometre trail begins in open forest and offers great views of Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah from the summit. Don't forget to pack your camera as you'll find a 360 degree panoramic view of the coast and hinterland at the top!
Listed as a Grade 4 walking track, you will need to have a moderate level of fitness for this track, which will take about two hours to complete. Be sure to take plenty of water, wear supportive boots and sun protection.
Caution: This track passes close to cliff edges so please supervise children closely. Take extra care around the summit area in wet weather as rocks can become very slippery.
