A few friends and I took the day off and had a mini road trip to Moogerah Peak National Park for a short hike and some stargazing at night. It was somewhere nearer to Gold Coast than Brisbane. So, needless to say, you'd need a car to get there.
You'll be able to park somewhere near Lake Moogerah dam and have a some quick bite (but bring your own food!) if you decide to take on the bush walking challenge! It would probably take you... 1 hour to reach the summit? Or at least, that was how long it took me to get to the top! (Oh wait, that's not including the break I took halfway up!)
Unhealthy me was panting all the way up and shaking all the way down! But I assure you, the view from the summit is soooooo breathtaking, it will be worth all your out-of-breath-ness and all your my-heart-is-beating-in-my-ears-ness.

But of course, you will need to see it for yourself in order to fully experience the magnificence of the place.
