I took the opportunity this morning to hike to the summit of Mount Maroon: part of the scenic rim in South Eastern Queensland. Whilst Mount Maroon isn’t as accessible to Brisbane as Flinder’s Peak, the 360 degree views from the summit make the drive and the climb to the top definitely worthwhile.
I was stoked to see a large cairn at the peak when I arrived, and I was lucky enough to have the summit to myself and I felt on top of the world whilst I sat and admired the view in every direction.
The track was hard and didn’t have many markings at all so it was easy to get lost which briefly happened to me. If you visit take plenty of water and only visit on a cool dry day as the rocks would be very slippery and dangerous when wet.
