"Mount Coolum Track"

The new track to climb Mt Coolum is most impressive with stairs all the way. The improved track really is excellent and a great way to start the day. The views are super impressive from the top and a must for any visitor to the area.

Pattieone Oh! Must check it out next time we are there. Don't know how many times I've climbed that mountain, both from the back and the front. Hard work! Stairs would certainly help, especially at this time of life! :-)

"Hidden Gem on the Sunshine Coast"

There is something special about the Mount Coolum Area. It is easy to see why Mount Coolum Real Estate is popular.

To the west of the David Low Way the impressive 208 meter dome of Mount Coolum dominates the horizon and provides the perfect back drop for many homes in the area. During heavy rain, waterfalls can often be seen cascading off the mountain.

The surrounding National Park is noted for its botanical diversity with more than 700 different species of plants. Vegetation types include Eucalypt Forest, Coastal Wallum, Paperbark Wetland, Rare Coastal Montane Heath and some rainforest.
Pros
  • Beautiful Mountain Back drop
  • Leafy Street
  • Hidden Gem on the Sunshine Coast

"Mount Coolum - Great views from the top and great place to be at the bottom."

Mount Coolum is on the Sunshine Coast between Noosa and Maroochydore. Mount Coolum is a volcanic dome that stands 208 meters in height and takes a minimum of 3 hours round trip to walk but the views are well worth it. The town of MT Coolum offers good shopping for essential items and is close to the major shopping of Maroochydore. Explore the hinterland or enjoy the great long stretching beach which offers good surfing and body boarding. Mt Coolum public golf course is a great walk and you get to see quite a bit of wildlife even if your game is not the best on the day. There is good accommodation options for the visitor but property prices are beginning to take off as this part of the coast expands.
