Mount Tempest Lookout is a 2.5km, grade 2 Return hike located in Moreton Island National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

Moreton Island is the most natural of the large sand islands located in Moreton Bay’s sheltered waters. At 285 metres high, Mount Tempest is the highest stabilised sand dune in the world. The walk to the top of Mount Tempest is a memorable one, with sweeping views of Moreton Bay and the island’s length a spectacular experience. Enjoy the wildflowers in spring and look for migrating humpback whales in late winter and spring.

About the region

Moreton Island National Park is a national park which covers 98% of Moreton Island in Queensland, Australia, 58 km northeast of Brisbane. It has three main townships, Bulwer, Cowan Cowan and Kooringal.

The island is home to Queensland’s oldest operating lighthouse located at Cape Moreton on the northern tip of the island.[1] The township of Cowan was home to the Australian soldiers during WWII and many relics remain on the island. Access to the park was restricted during a clean-up of oil from the 2009 southeast Queensland oil spill.[2]

Activities such as bushwalking, fishing and watersports are popular in the park. Humpback whale can be seen in surrounding waters between late winter and spring.
