Cooroora Mountain conquered!

Arnaud and I were determined to climb Cooroora Mountain before he departed… all 439 meters of her!

We got up early, enjoyed a brekkie prepared by Nick and set off. We drove through a new (to us) area of Pomona to the lower “base” car park from where we departed (near 07:00). By 08:10 we were at the summit. The trail was loose at the start, got better, then weaned off to near-nothing but a chain near the top… then nothing but air. We passed probably 70 people going up or down the trek and made it, only two stops for water, and MUCH sweat later!

WHAT A VIEW – all 360 degrees of it! (even stretching to the ocean and beyond). Words cannot express it — yet, neither can the pictures – but here goes…

What a place!

We occasionally take time to enjoy the area so with our French friend around we wanted to share among our favourite view… We drove through the Noosa National Park and onward to the Tinbeerwah Lookout. While it has a fantastic 360 degree view — photos just don’t do it justice (so we are sharing the view towards our place).

What a stellar place — magical in fact. Volcanic mountains now surrounded by forests and skirted by oceans.
