Mount Superbus

Pile of stones in among tree ferns

Walking SE Queensland highest peak. QLD topological maps suggest that north peak is the highest point, but most other sources suggest that the main peak is the highest. Both peaks are marked by rock cairns.

The majority of the track to Mt Superbus was fairly easy to navigate but it was almost a scramble at times. Most hikers appear to stop at the rock cairn that signals the north peak and I had to leave the trail to find the main peak that was nestled in a small patch of tree ferns. While it was a sunny day, clouds obscured the sun at times and this made navigation relatively difficult for such a simple ridgeline hike.


If you plan to do this hike, definitely take a compass to enable you to track true north without the sun nor landmarks and even a backup GPS unit is recommended to help find the submit. Most of the track is easy to follow and is relatively well marked with ribbons.

Take care after rain as the track can get slippery.

North peak:
28° 13' 6.7" S, 152° 27' 37.6" E
Main peak:
28° 13' 18.1" S, 152° 27' 22.3" E

Access is via the gated Brett Road just off Spring Creek / Head Roads near the Teviot Falls lookout. Don't drive up Bretts Rd and keep the accessway clear.
