Activity Time: 60+ minutes

Autumn in Queensland is the perfect time to explore the stunning Mount Ninderry, located between Yandina and Coolum. This majestic mountain serves as a marker dividing the north and south ends of the Sunshine Coast and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding areas.

The climb to the top of Mount Ninderry is a pleasant 1.4km walk on a stepped track, taking approximately 30 to 40 minutes for most people to reach the summit. However, if you’re taking the kids with you, it’s best to allow up to 60 minutes. Along the way, you’ll encounter calf-burning steps and occasional tantalizing views, before finally reaching a prominent bluff that rewards your efforts with stunning panoramic views.

To maximize your climb, it’s important to dress appropriately for the cooler autumn weather. Focus on wearing breathable clothing and comfortable footwear with a supportive insole to reduce any strain on your feet. As dehydration can be a serious problem during any climb, it’s crucial to bring plenty of water with you. As a rule of thumb, always bring more water than you think you will need.

For an unforgettable experience, consider climbing the trail early in the morning to watch the sunrise. At the summit, you’ll find two lookout points with breathtaking views of Yandina and the Blackall Range to the west, and Mount Coolum to the east. Don’t miss the chance to explore the beauty of Mount Ninderry during your autumn visit to Queensland.
