Description

Located in Queensland's Main Range National Park, Mount Cordeaux is a moderately challenging hike that offers plenty for those who tackle it.

The trail is a straight 6.7km / 1-2 hour out-and-back to the lookout point just below the 1135m peak.

Starting out from the trailhead at the Mount Cordeaux car park, the hike follows a well-defined path through a variety of vegetation, including eucalyptus trees, ferns, and grasses. The path gets steeper as it approaches the lookout point, passing an abandoned goldmine shaft on the way up. The views across Mount Mitchell, Mount Greville and even (on a clear day) Brisbane are well worth the effort.
