    Mt. Tinbeerwah

    Note the slow encroaching of civilization

    No, this is not Mount Tinbeerwah. This is a picture taken from Mount Tinbeerwah. Though it's only 265 metres high, its location and relative ease of accessibility lead some tourists to go and have a look.
    Another attraction is abseiling, an activity for which U-bolts have been permanently inserted for those who are so inclined (vertically, that is).
    At the summit, which is reached after a 500 metre walk over mostly solid rock, there are expansive views, particularly over Noosa Heads. There are three panoramic views listing the relevant visible points. There is one side where there is no explanation. That happens to be the side you're looking at here.
    It is yet another volcanic remnant, a central core remaining after all else has been eroded.
    The views are aided by the solid rock which means that there is little vegetation to spoil the vista.
    The mount is somewhere near Tewantin. My vagueness here is because I was dozing off in the car while Rosemarie was driving and have no idea where the turnoff is! I can tell you that it is signposted though.

    4WD area across the river

    To the left of Noosa's Main Beach and across the river is a fantastic area for 4WD along a long stretch of coastline.

    Forest of Noosa

    When you cross from the beach drive to the main road, you go through a dense rain forest. It is pretty cool.

    Rainbow beach 4WD

    Black rocks and white sand

    If you have or rent a 4WD, you should go driving along the coastline (on sand) to Rainbow beach. The colourful sand dunes, plust the endless stretch of wide sandy beach is quite an experience.
