Mount Coolum National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Mount Coolum’s impressive dome dominates the skyline of the Sunshine Coast lowlands.

Follow the rough, 800 metre track to the 208 metre summit of the mountain. Here you’ll be surrounded by rare montane heath—a plant community with many rare and threatened species. Mount Coolum National park is one of only two places it grows on the Sunshine Coast.

Catch your breath and take in the stunning 360 degree views stretching from Point Cartwright and the Glass House Mountains in the south, to the Blackhall Range in the west and Noosa Heads to the north.

South and west from the summit, the park extends across flat lowlands cloaked in wallum, paperbark wetlands, eucalypt forests and rainforest remnants. These vegetation communities were once common across the Sunshine Coast. Approximately half of all the plant species that occur on the Sunshine Coast are found in Mount Coolum National Park.
