A beautiful view of the Coolum coastline
When visiting or staying at the Sunshine Coast there are a few natural hotspots you need to witness. One of them is the climb to the top of Mount Coolum within the surrounding national park.
Getting there is very easy, off David Low Way that connects Coolum Beach and Mount Coolum there is a small carpark on Tanah Street West where you enter the national park and the hike. Taking the Sunshine Motorway is the easiest way to get there and the exit is after a local shopping complex to fuel yourself before the walk.
The walk is an 800 metre long track, and although it doesn't sound like much, two-thirds of the walk is a steep climb that you definitely feel the next morning. But the hike and climb is definitely worth the view up top. Mount Coolum is 208 metre above sea level and from the top you not only get 360 degree views of the beach and the coastal plain that surrounds it, but also views of the Glasshouse Mountains to the south.
