View Map

Situated between Coolum and Peregian Beach, Mount Emu gets its name from the local Aboriginal word Peregian which means Emu. This is an easy walk up a fairly rutted path and a leisurely pace will see you at the top in about 20 minutes. During the best whale watching month, October, Mount Emu is an excellent spot to see pods of whales breaching just a few hundred metres from the shoreline.

Access to the mountain is from Havana Road (the High School turning) and if you look left as you drive down you will see a Queensland Parks and Wildlife information board which is where to park the car and start the walk. The mountain is the exclusive home to a small red flowering bush, Allocasuarina Emuina. Wallum wildflowers, Tumble Down and Scribbly Gum are also found there in abundance.
