Wayne's World





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.

The 2019 Ngungun track expansion & fortification work is now complete, and the mountain is once again fully open.


Google Map of Mt Beerwah

Make your way to the 'Glasshouse Mountains Lookout' (last toilets). Pass this and keep going and onto the gravel road for another 200 meters then turn right into Connection Rd. Follow this (very rough logging road), for about 3.5 kilometers (passing the old carpark, if you knew where that was) and then taking the right fork and driving along under the power lines for a few hundred meters. Just before the big power line tower on the hill, there are a few roads off to the right. Take the last one (it's flattest) and park without obstructing the gate.

Car park:

Coords: -26.900995, 152.873766

Walk through the gate and down the fire break (rough road) for about 8mins until you see a narrow motorbike trail on the right that bypasses a big puddle in the main road. Head into the bush perpendicular and gently uphill until you hit a tall gum. Head rightwards towards the next big gum. Right again along the top edge of the gulley (on your right) for a few meters then left into the bush along a vague trail through some close saplings. Right at the cairn and follow the goats trail along the flat until a second cairn where you head right and down. Head downhill until you intersect a creek bed on your left; cross it and pass the cairn on a boulder to the left. Up beside the dead and burnt tree then right across the ferny slope. After a bit more bush, head up abruptly to the cliff and turn right. Follow the cliff along to the crag.

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.
