The Mt Ninderry Bushland Conservation Reserve covers approx. 150 hectares, while its peak, Mt Ninderry, is 304 meters above sea level. On this summit trail you ascend just over 130 metres because – good news – the carpark start is high up on a ridge. From the car park follow the rolling fire road to a steep single track with a lot of calf-burning steps, and occasional tantalising views, before it finally opens out up onto the prominent bluff as a reward for your efforts. It’s a great compliment to Mt Coolum’s summit, visible to the east, which you can see from one of two lookouts at the summit. Get up early and climb the trail as the day is breaking and watch the sun rise!
HOW TO GET THERE:
To the starting point: Travelling on the M1 take the Yandina Coolum exit towards the coast. After you cross the Maroochy River turn left into Collins Road.
Travelling on the Sunshine Coast Motorway take the Yandina Coolum exit towards Yandina and turn right into Collins Road just before the river (close to Yandina).
Follow Collins Road to the end and at the T-junction with Ninderry Road turn right and follow it to about 500 metres before the end where the road forks. Take the right-hand road to Mount Ninderry car park.
Additionally, heading north along Nambour Connection Road, travel through the Yandina town (changes to Farrell Street), before turning right into Ninderry Road.
To the end point: This is an up-and-back route. Go for it!
