Travel guide to Wolvi Mountain and Salmon Lookout
Wolvi Mountain is a mountain peak at an elevation of 373m (1,223ft) above the sea level, located in Queensland, in northeastern Australia.
Located in the Noosa hinterland, the road to the summit is unpaved. It’s called Wolvi Mountain Road. Normal cars can use the track in dry conditions. The summit hosts a lookout called the Salmon Lookout. The tower was built for the forestry department as a fire tower. Today, fire towers are not manned anymore as cameras can be monitored remotely. Some of the towers are now used for the mobile telephone network and other communications systems.
The drive is pretty steep. Starting from Gympie Kin Kin Pomona Road, the ascent is 5.6 km (3.47 miles) long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 219 meters. The average gradient is 3.91%.
