Mount Coolum juts out of the Sunshine Coast landscape, with the ocean in the foreground.

With a long weekend on our doorstep, we couldn’t be happier that Coronavirus restrictions are easing on the Sunshine Coast. 

As well as throwing down a rug at a beautiful picnic spot, frequenting our favourite homewares stores and continuing to indulge in the tastiest takeaway, we’re most excited that some of the best Sunshine Coast hikes are re-opening for business. 

As of this Saturday 2 May, the summit track at Mount Coolum is open, along with all of the Glass House Mountains summit hikes, including the easiest of the lot, Mount Ngungun. And with temperatures supposedly dropping to below ‘sweaty’ this weekend, now is the perfect time to reach the peaks and soak in all those stunning views we’ve been deprived of for weeks. 

Just remember, take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints.
