Don’t know what to do with your day? …Climb a mountain!

A few weekends ago me and Jake were trying to think of what to do with our day, we wanted to do something that was cheap and outdoors because the weather was really nice.
‘We could climb Mount Ngungun?’ said Jake, after I’d stopped laughing at the name I decided it would be a great idea!
The mountain is about an hour from Jake’s house, it’s the sixth tallest of the Glass House Mountains and stands at 253 metres high.

The climb was beautiful, lots of amazing views along the way.

Within no time at all Jake told me we were near the top, you couldn’t get a bearing for how high we were because the walk in lined with trees so you can’t really see out. I could not believe it when we reached the top. You have to climb over a few big rocks before you get to the top and I know it sounds super cheesy but when I got to the top and looked out, the view took my breath away. I had never seen something like that before and it was beautiful! You just look out for as far as you can see, the sun was shining and it was amazing!

Me and Jake sat down just looking out onto the amazing view, I didn’t want to rush being up there because the views was incredible (…and I wanted a rest and was putting off the walk back down!)

It was such a great day and amazing to do something different. When I see and do things like this it reminds me that I’m living in an amazing country with such natural beauty and that there is so much more of it explore!

Here is a video that I made of the climb
