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.

Recently walked up Emu Mountain. I cycled to the bottom of the mountain which is located very close to Coolum. Not very mountainous, but a pleasant walk rewarded by a broad vista at the summit. Not as busy as other walks in the region.

To be honest, hubby and I wanted to walk Emu Mountain as its not overloaded with tourists or fitness fanatics like Mt Coolum is. The views are stunning, especially during whale season. The walk is easier and much safer for the whole family. Sitting and enjoying the mountain is also very pleasant. Great space for meditating and photos.

Although at 71m, Emu Mountain may not, technically be a Mountain, but it is a great way to see the coast and hinterlands from a different perspective. An easy walk to the top (depending on fitness), you will be rewarded with 360° views of the magnificent Sunshine Coast Region. And some beautiful sea breezes to cool you down after the... More

Emu mountain is a fairly easy climb up to the summit. It's not a super high point, however it is high enough to get a great view of the surrounding area.

This is not a huge climb like Mount Coolum. It is a steady rise and we see many ages doing it. The views are still very good. Perfect for sunsets. The western view is very good. There are several option for getting up and down as there are tracks leading over the mountain and down the back side of it.... More

Beautiful view of Coolum from the top. It only took 40 min up and down with a 7&9 year old. The pathway gets very rough near the top but it was very enjoyable.
