Starting from the car park off Lynn Road, Targinnie, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Larcom and back via the same-titled hiking trail. You’ll be rewarded by unimpeded panoramic views over Queensland as you make it to the summit. You can have a little picnic here whilst enjoying the landscape. There are some solar panels and antennas along with a sturdy metal cross at the top. Take at least 2 litres of water(per person) to avoid dehydration. Also, hiking poles and sturdy shoes may come in handy while dealing with loose rocks. Avoid warmer months as you may experience a heatstroke. You can take your fluffy friends with you, but don’t forget to get water for them too. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Warning This journey requires significant bushwalking experience, specialised equipment and navigation skills. Please ensure you and your group well prepared and equiped for this journey.
