Putting the “Mountain” in the Bike

Emu Mountain

Emu Mountain is a great little national park just north of Coolum where we spent the weekend. It has some interesting walking tracks which we’ve done with the kids before, but this time I felt like exploring it on my bike.

I didn’t intend to ride up it, but when I saw the gnarly tracks heading up the hill, I couldn’t resist.

The cllimb wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be, and (as always) the view was fantastic. This view is looking south back down to Coolum where we were staying.

As you can see, a lot of the land in the area is forest – right by the sea, and quite unspoilt.

Stumers Creek

Eventually I rolled back down the gnarly hills and stopped briefly on the beach at Stumers Creek.

A beautiful finish to a wonderful weekend!
