Sunday 12th March 2017.
Our Facebook post suggested the full moon was on Saturday 11th March … actually it is 100% full at moonrise on Sunday 12th March and rises at 6pm. Still perfect for a hike up Mt Maroon as the walk up will be in daylight, and down bathed in the light of the full moon.
The view from Mt Maroon summit on a clear full-moon night reveals expansive scenery bathed in silver light. See nearby Lake Maroon glinting, mountains
glowing and the lights of Brisbane in the far distance.
Our "Moonrise 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.
