Mt Cooroora

For the young and the young-at-heart who are up for an adventure, there’s nothing quite like a climb up Mt Cooroora at the edge of the hinterland village of Pomona. Scramble over rocky ledges and test your legs up flights of stairs - the view from the top sure is worth it! Challenge accepted?
