SUNSET AT EMU MOUNTAIN
Looking for a way the whole family can stretch their legs after work and school?
For our little tribe the perfect spot is Emu Mountain, located in between Peregian Beach and Coolum. The name Emu Mountain comes from the local aboriginal word meaning Emu.
It’s an easy 1.6km climb (walk) to the top, so it’s a great option for all fitness levels.
It’s even accessible for toddlers and our little nature lover loves to check out all the plants, wildflowers & lizards along the way.
Most walk the track in just 15mins each ways, but for those with younger children who like to take their time and explore allow a little longer.
Located just outside the Coolum township, you can enter from Havana East Ross across from the Coolum State School with plenty of parking available.
The view from the top which includes Mount Coolum, the Coast line and out to the Hinterland is really special at sunset and during peak whale season (October) you can often see the pods of whales.
