Mount Tibrogargan 364m track is a strenuous walking climb, even if it is in the national park. This is a climb, you will need your hands, some good leg muscles, strong heart and lungs with a decent level of fitness to make it to the top.

With it’s ape-like appearance, Tibrogargan can bee seen from the sea, [named by Captain Cook in 1770]  Scarborough, Bribie Island and the Caloundra and when your up on the Hinterland  be amazed when looking over it in the distance.

Tibrogargan is an Aboriginal word believed to mean ‘biting grey glider’. Like the other Glass House Mountain peaks, the mountain is held sacred by Aboriginal people.  Glass House Mountains.

This is the ultimate adventure for any weekend adventurer on foot. Be prepared and tell some one or notify the parks and wild life that you will be up there on a certain day.

Good footwear, good sunscreen, plenty of water and a snack.

This isn’t a gentle, elevated stroll up a mountain. This is a sweaty task – but the view is awesome from the top .. .now the return trip back down….. mobile phone working — wonder if the helicopter will come and rescue me….!.

After your sumpsuous Breakfast in your suite  take a 20 minutes drive from Artisan Spa Views – go early our guest tell us as it gets quite busy after midday. Bring along a beach towel and brave the waters if you dare.This isn’t your average local swimming hole.

The highlight is Skene Creek, which drops 90 metres over falls to the rainforest valley below. The endless spectacles is spellbinding and can be seen from two easy walking circuits – the 1.7km (45min – 1hr) Picnic Creek Circuit to the longer but worthwhile 4.7km (2-3hrs) Kondalilla Falls walk.

Mind the 100 plus stairs! Growing in popularity, summer traditionally brings large crowds to Kondalilla (an Aboriginal word for “rushing waters”).

Make the most  of your morning and head back to Gypsy’s Table at the top of the hill in Monteville [parking behind restaurant]

Ask Leesa for her delightful $20 lunch plate or chose from her extensive menu both vegetarian and old world delights or ask her for something special that isn’t on the menu you might have to mention your staying at Artisan Spa Views with Randy and Maree though for an incredible day out you won’t forget.
