An easy 9 minute stroll to the top for beach and hinterland views. A number of different paths to take to make the walk up more interesting.

The climb takes about 15-20 minutes depending on how quick you walk, and it can be a little bit rocky in places. It's a fairly easy walk, and the 360deg view of the coast is awesome when you reach the top.

I enjoy the walk up Emu Mountain. It is a stroll that will get your heart rate up and enlighten your visual senses from the top with the coastline stretching from Coolum Beach to Noosa Heads.

If you have no problem with a short climb then this will suit you as the views from the top are great.

This is a fairly easy hike, with some views. Mount Coolum has much better views, but is a much more difficult hike than Emu mountain.
