Moderate track
Starting from Marshs Road, Beerburrum, this walk takes you on a circuit around Tibberoowuccum and Tibrogargan mountains, visiting more than 5 viewpoints and crossing a creek along the way. With an optional side trip, you can visit the summit of Tibberoowuccum as well. You’ll find it hard to remember all the exceptional views you’ve encountered after this trip, so get ready to take some photos. Expect to see all the way over to the Sunshine Coast from atop Tibberoowuccum as you catch your breath. The other viewpoints along the way provide you unique angles of the surrounding Glass House Mountains, rewarding you well for your effort. If lucky, you may spot some yellow-tailed black cockatoos or even a Wedge-tailed eagle. Keep in mind that there is a little bit of rock scrambling involved near the summit of Tibberoowuccum, but it’s not mandatory to get a good view over the land. An insect repellent will come in handy against the mozzies(Australian word for mosquitos). Try to avoid wet conditions as the track gets slippery. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
