Set within the forestry of the Noosa Hinterland, is a sprawling forest of newly-planted trees, funded entirely from participants in local events and run in conjunction with Landcare Noosa.

Set within the Tuckekoi National Park, the imposing Mount Cooroora casts a long shadow over the town of Pomona and its surrounds.

If you’re looking for an easy climb, this is not the one for you, but for more experienced climbers this will be an enjoyable trek that’s rewarded with unparalleled 360 degree views from the top.
