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 "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.
