The view from Mt Maroon summit on a clear full-moon night reveals expansive scenery bathed in silver light. See nearby Lake Maroon glinting, the full Mt Barney profile, other mountains glowing and the lights of Brisbane in the far distance. Mt Maroon is a 964m volcanic peak adjacent to well-known Mt Barney. It is part of the McPherson Range of mountains in the Scenic Rim, and offers spectacular views to Brisbane, Moreton Island and even the tip of Mt Warning can be seen from the summit. Our “Moon Rise on Mt Maroon” guided walk is even more special as there are very few full moons falling on Saturday or Sunday night, when we depart mid-afternoon and return to the Lodge at 9pm or later. Take advantage of the bright light of the full moon to explore the best moon view in SE Qld. Mt Maroon is achievable by a fit and determined hiker and takes 5-7hrs return from Mt Barney Lodge. This expedition may take a little longer as we slow down to negotiate the gully and summit areas in moon light.
