An easy 9 minute stroll to the top for beach and hinterland views. A number of different paths to take to make the walk up more interesting.

The climb takes about 15-20 minutes depending on how quick you walk, and it can be a little bit rocky in places. It's a fairly easy walk, and the 360deg view of the coast is awesome when you reach the top.

I enjoy the walk up Emu Mountain. It is a stroll that will get your heart rate up and enlighten your visual senses from the top with the coastline stretching from Coolum Beach to Noosa Heads.

If you have no problem with a short climb then this will suit you as the views from the top are great.

We love this walk; it's easy enough for most ages and a good track with mostly hard footing. There are a few loose stones to look out for but in 15 minutes you're looking at a huge swathe of coast and bush and hinterland; really rewarding for the short time it takes to climb.

This is a fairly easy hike, with some views. Mount Coolum has much better views, but is a much more difficult hike than Emu mountain.

We had a nice walk to the mountain and also the track up not a hard track to do however early morning or later in the afternoon due to the temperature but well worth and if your luck as we were you will see the majestic wales playing in this beautiful part of the world.

This "mountain" is an easy climb for everyone in the family, but the views are still spectacular. A short climb for those who are time=poor, but still want a bit of exercise.

This is a pleasant walk, up a rocky track. The views up there are extensive and when you go up in whale migration season, you are almost guaranteed a sighting. Binoculars are useful.
