Mt Maroon:

Mt maroon is a remnant of the volcanic lava-flows that formed this region 20-23 million years ago. The mountain stands over 3000 feet tall and has a number of classic climbing and hiking routes up to its summit. Climbing and hiking on Mt Maroon is an experience that will leave even the most traveled adventurers wanting to come back for more. Towering volcanic rock, cliffs, ridgelines, and classic Scenic Rim bush, this mountain frames a vast range of adventures for all experience levels. Mt Maroon is home for a unique mix of Hiking, Climbing, Abseiling, Orienteering, and other adventure activities including SE Queensland’s legionary TRAD multi-pitch climb, Ruby Of India. Multi-pitch TRAD climbing is available to selected fitness levels and limited to smaller groups.

Glasshouse Mountains:

In the Glasshouse Mountains, our choice mountain is Mt Tibrogargan. This mountain holds a sacred heritage the Aboriginal/First Nation people of Australia. Mt Tibrogargan is own as the Father of the other mountains in the area, while Beerwah was the pregnant Mother. This mountain is also a remnant of a very different time, when the lava flows were under tremendous pressure under the earth and pushed their way upwards through weaker areas and pockets. As the lava flows cooled they became solid rock structures under the earth, and are now the only vertical pieces of rock that remain from the original 6500 foot mountain. Mt Tibrogargan has hundreds of rock climbing routes, both single and multi-pitch, however, even the trail that has been developed up the southern face is quite challenging and exhilarating for most people. There are far too many routes to name, but your guide will discuss the very best and most suited adventure for you, with all ages, experience, and fitness levels being catered for.
