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.
This expedition may take a little longer as we slow down to negotiate the gully and summit areas in moon light.
