Mt Mathieson Trail

  • Mar 24, 2013 · 7:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This walk has some difficult sections and is not recommended for people with fitness or health concerns.

The eastern approach to Spicers Gap is suitable for conventional vehicles and is reached via Lake Moogerah Road, which leaves the Cunningham Highway 5 km west of Aratula, then Spicers Gap Road. Spicers Gap Road ends at Governors Chair car park. This road does not provide through access to Warwick. Park in the Pioneer Park picnic area when you arrive.

Mount Mathieson trail ( Class 4)

  • Distance: 9 km return
  • Time: Allow about 3 hrs walking time
  • Details: This rough marked trail (not a graded walking track) commences opposite the Pioneer picnic area. The walk takes you through open eucalypt and rainforest and provides opportunities for views north of Cunninghams Gap. The trail returns via the Heritage trail and Spicers Gap Road in Main Range National Park. We will also take in the Governors Chair which should be our lunch spot.

What to bring: yourself, lunch & trail snacks, water, camera, raincoat, first aid kit, sunscreen, insect repellent and a fun attitude.

We will return via Boonah where we will stop for coffee and/or cake.


We will meet at Park Rd/Boggo Rd train station, Quarry St, Woolloongabba, leaving there at 0700am (0700hrs). Those of you who are carpooling please offer your driver at least $15 to cover their expenses. For those of you who live south and west, you should plan to be at Spicers Gap by 830am.

    Guys, this distance is right up my alley unfortunately a 3 hour round trip from Brisbane is not that convenient for a day trip. Hope you all enjoy the day.
