As Wayne's World is on the southern face there is no sun all day from mid March till early November. During these shaded times it is best to give it about 2 days to dry after rain. Most routes are fully bolted but take a light rack for the mixed routes (I have marked these and listed what gear to use). Take about 10 draws and bolt plates and I recommend some 10mm plates as some of the bolts are a bit fat. As with all Glasshouse destinations bring the Aerogard. Development is continuing so keep off the projects please.

I would like to thank Height Dynamics for donating the anchor stations, the thoughtful few that donated bolts, and the handful of dedicated climbers that helped me develop this area. Play safe! Wayne.

Access issues inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Most 'Glasshouse Mountains' climbing is within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Please respect the environment and other people's enjoyment of it. Access to climbing here is a privilege, not a right.


Google Map of Mt Beerwah

From the newly named Steve Irwin Way turn into Barrs Rd (which is just past 'The Glasshouse' Mountains Holiday Village) and continue past 'Mt Tibrogargan' to the Old Gympie Rd intersection. Turn left here then turn right at the Glasshouse- Woodford Rd. Continue on to the 'Glasshouse Mountains' Tourist 'Lookout'. Pass this and keep going and onto the gravel road for another 200 meters then turn right into Connection Rd. Follow this for about 3 kilometers till the third locked gate on the right. Park cars here (S26.908056, E152.876). Follow the track downwards for about 10 minutes (ignoring the track on the left) till you reach a very small car park and big knobby grey gum on your left with a big log behind it, and a bigger knobby grey gum off the track on the right (S26.903833, E152.880861). From here turn left and follow the faint track and some pink markers for another 15 minutes till you reach the base of the mountain. You have made it! (S26.89975, E152.881944)

Routes are listed from right to left...

Ethic inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Modern climbers establishing new routes have taken great pains to ensure any new routes do not interfere with the historic routes established many decades ago.

Retro-bolting of existing routes is unacceptable!

New routes shall make use of traditional protection where available.
