While visiting cousins we ventured up Emu Mountain at sunset. The trails are full of interesting flora and fauna. Some mountain biking is on the trails - quite difficult. The views from the top are amazing. Well worth the hike!

Great views of the surrounding area, easy access, usually quiet and very peaceful. Decent walk if you do the whole thing or take a picnic up half way and enjoy the serenity

We have climbed Mt Coolum and you need to be fairly fit,if not then Emu Mountain May be a good substitute. Just take your time,good shoes and water. At the top you can see from Noosa down to Coolum.

Walked from Perigian Springs to Emu Mountain - the walk was most enjoyable and the walk to the top was not hard - the view was pretty spectacular.

Part of the Noosa National Park, the entrance to the walk is right across from Coolum State High School and is a bit confusing because it doesn’t seem like you can access it but you can. There are a few trails, we entered by trail...More
