The main attraction within the park is, of course, Mount Coolum. This majestic dome-shaped mountain is 208 meters above sea level. To summit the mountain, follow the 800-meter track but keep in mind that the track is rough, so be prepared by wearing the right shoes. Along the way, you’ll get to see the beautiful and rare montane heath, as the park is only one of two places where it thrives naturally.

The mountain is only recommended for fit and experienced climbers. The trail takes an average of an hour and a half return. As there are limited facilities on the climb, bring enough water, as well as sunscreen. Don’t forget your camera because the stunning coastal views are quite picturesque.

The protected Mount Coolum National Park is also abundant in other plants and natural terrains such as paperbark wetlands, rainforests, wallum, and open eucalypt forests. These were once wild-growing throughout the Sunshine Coast, but much of these areas have been cleared because of the rapid population increase and development.

There are a few things to keep in mind to be a responsible visitor to the park. Remember to leave your pets and other domestic animals at home since they are not allowed within the park. Any animals you come across should not be fed because human food can harm them or even cause these animals to become territorial or aggressive. Take all rubbish out of the park with you, and always stay on the walking tracks to avoid harming plants.

Mount Coolum National Park is a thrilling destination loved by locals and visitors alike. Be sure to carve time out to visit this splendid attraction.
