Mount Barney is one of Queensland’s highest and most impressive peaks, a two hour drive south of Brisbane.
Situated in the Mount Barney National Park within the Scenic Rim, Mount Barney is part of the world-heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest area of South East Queensland.
With extensive walking trails through rainforests and bushland to tranquil rockpools and spectacular views, Mount Barney is an outstanding place to visit.
The mountain’s sheer rugged peaks, caves, crevices and steep unforgiving landscape are best suited to highly-experienced bushwalkers and rock climbers. The eastern face of the mountain is a sheer 300 metre cliff, presenting a meaty challenge for the country’s best rock climbers. Abseilers also regularly test their mettle on nearby escarpments.
At the base of the mountain, easier tracks can be found taking walkers to pristine rock pools great views and lush rainforest.
