6.30 am - 3.00 pm Sunday 18 AUGUST 2019
Join us and station sponsor, Rotary Club of Cooroy, for a family fun day at the Cooroy Mountain Spring Festival. Tickets are still only $10 (children age under 12 free) with all proceeds going to community groups in need.
Enjoy a fun day of music, a kids’ activity centre, food and market stalls stroll through the rainforest and have this once-a-year chance to climb Cooroy Mountain (sorry for safety reasons no dogs will be allowed) . The first walkers are able to start their climb at 6.30 am and last leaving for base camp at at 1.00 pm.
Warren O’Neill, President of the Rotary Club of Cooroy said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a Sunday morning walk and get a view of our beautiful countryside from the top of Mount Cooroy. One hour will be ample time to walk to the top up a rocky track; a hundred metres from the top, there is a rocky slab with some great views to the West over the sunny coast hinterland and further up on the south eastern side of the summit there are views to the East from the sand patch beyond Lake Cootharaba down the Sunshine Coast to Mount Coolum."
Last year thanks to the generosity of visitors to the Festival the Rotary Club of Cooroy was able to donate over $30,000 to good causes including local disability support group, Sunshine Butterflies based in Tewantin, Queensland Drought Appeal, Cooroy SES and Black Mountain Rural Fire Brigade and many more.
