'Mt Tinbeerwah' is a 265m high volcanic plug just inland from Noosa on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. The climbs on offer here are fun, well-protected sport routes of moderate grade, with the odd trad or aid route. The cliff varies in height dramatically along its length so climbs vary from short single pitch to multipitches up to 5 pitches long.
Almost all bolts at Mt Tinbeerwah are carrot bolts (BRs in the descriptions) so bring plenty of bolt plates. A few climbs have fixed hangers (FHs) or u-bolts. There are large numbered rings along the top of the 'Main Wall' as well as double bolt belays (DBBs) for rapping and belaying.
There are two areas to climb at 'Mt Tinbeerwah': the 'Main Wall' and the much smaller 'Lower Wall'. Both walls face west, meaning it's too hot to climb here on summer afternoons. Helmets are advisable, as much for the things people throw off the lookout as for loose rocks.

Follow the Bruce Highway north and take the Cooroy turnoff 120km from Brisbane. Drive through Cooroy, following signs to Noosa Heads to end up on the Cooroy-Noosa Rd. Follow this for about 8km before turning left into Tinbeerwah Rd, well marked with signs for the scenic lookout. Follow this road, which is dirt at times, for about 3km to the carpark at the top of 'Mt Tinbeerwah'.
