Went here with the kids and had a fantastic time. Not to hard just make sure you have some water. Total walk back to the car was one and half hours

Easy Walk/Climb to the top. Beautiful views, suggest early in the morning over summer. It can get rather hot and very little shade so bring a hat and wear sunscreen 🌞 At an easy pace you can be at the top in under 20minutes easy.

Enjoyable walk, a bit strenuous for those with a sedentary predisposition, we throughly enjoyed the challenge, the workout & and acknowledging the many other climbers on the trek up. The views at the summit were great.

Finally climbed Mt Coolum! It was steep but not too difficult. Conditions were warm and dry. Went up in 20mins at a constant medium pace with a couple of stops. Others less fit took 30mins. Great view. Take water. Track easy to follow.
