  • From the large car park on Fullertons Rd, the track is immediately uphill and there is little relief for the 20 mins or so that it takes to get up. The track is clear and the footing generally pretty ...  more »

  • I love hiking in the MT ngungun. The track is not hard, and can be very easy if you're fit, but the best part is reach the peak and enjoy such an awe-inspiring view. I always bring a snack to have while relaxing in the top of the mount. But make sure you have plastic bags for your waste, nothing more disappointing than finding snack packs left behind. Also be sure to bring a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated. At the very beginning of the track you'll find a water tap to fill it up.
  • Great hike/walk with a rewarding view from the top. Not too strenuous, recommends to allow 2 hours but we’re pretty active and were up and down in an hour, with 10 mins at the top for pictures.
  • Ngungun offers a nice climb that is family friendly. Unlike most of the glass house mountains, the track is covered by the shade of the trees keeping the harsh sun at bay. This trek is also littered with places to stop and rest and also offers a nice picturesque cave about halfway through the climb. The toughest parts of this climb are just before the cave, just after the cave and the last stretch to the top. No matter what mountain you attempt to climb I recommend taking atleast 2 or more litres of water with you. Once you have reached the top you should be greeted with a lovely view and an even better cool breeze(weather dependent). In my own personal experience I have found that going to the highest point offers the best views and breeze. Enjoy your climb
  • A great walk for most skill levels
  • Pleasant and not too arduous climb, nice view from the top!!
