Mount French Walks
Mount French Road, BOONAH, QLD 4310
Mount French is 9km west of the signposted turnoff just south of Boonah. Mount Edwards is east of the Cunningham Highway 9km south of Aratula. Mount Greville is 25km southwest of Boonah via the Mt Alford Road or 11km south of Lake Moogerah. Mount Moon is surrounded by private property and access must be arranged with the respective landholders.
Two short tracks make it easy for you to explore the park's many features, and neither require previous bushwalking experience. Sections of these tracks are suitable for wheelchairs with assistance.
(1) North cliff track — 720m return (Allow about 15 minutes walking time) Class 1
This track leads to Logan's lookout with excellent, panoramic views over the Fassifern Valley, with the Main Range escarpment to the west and Flinders Peak and beyond to the east. North Cliff track is suitable for wheelchairs with assistance.
(2) Mee-bor-rum circuit — 840m return (Allow about 25 minutes walking time) Class 3
This circuit track passes through heathland and features the East Cliff lookout with views of Tamborine, Lamington and Mount Barney. Care must be taken at the lookout as it is a natural feature and has no handrails. Further along the track a circular platform with seating provides views of the heathland and southern section of Mount French. Wheelchair access on this track is only possible to the heathland — beyond here the track is rough and uneven.
There are two short walking tracks in Mount French section and one in Mount Edwards section. The other sections of the park have a number of rough bush tracks of varying difficulty, which are best suited to experienced bushwalkers only. Less experienced walkers should walk with an experienced person and take food and water. Leave a copy of your bushwalking plans with a friend, relative or other reliable person. For your own comfort and safety, be aware of weather conditions. Suitable footwear and clothing are essential. Be aware that mobile phones work intermittently in these areas.
