Overlooking the hinterland of Queensland's Sunshine Coast, the Glass House Mountains offer a great introduction to abseiling (aka rappelling) for those wishing to add a little adventure to their day. With your qualified guide, work your way up to abseiling on a 131-foot (40-meter) cliff face of Mt. Ngungun in Glass House Mountains National Park. Pinnacle Sports operates with small group to guide ratios so you get more out your adventure. Equipment is provided, and your professional guide will put you at ease and help you to complete this mental and physical challenge.
What You'll Get
Located 60 minutes north of Brisbane, Mt Ngungun is a deservedly popular outdoor adventure destination. Here, you’ll meet your Pinnacle Guide in the morning for a quick lesson in abseil skills before walking into your first abseil site. Take a breather, whilst your guide sets up some atmospheric abseils at the lower cliffs.
Once you're comfortable on these abseils, walk up the trail to the upper cliffs where you'll be at the top of the 253m peak. Grab some lunch whilst taking in the stunning 360 views of the surrounding Glasshouses before heading down the 40m abseil into the forest below. From here your guide will walk you back out to your meeting point.
This is a unique adventure in a unique location, one we think you’ll find quite hard to forget!
