Thanks to michaelweare for adding this peak.

Mount Maroon is a mountain in South East Queensland that is part of the McPherson Range. The mountain rises to 966 m (3,170 ft) above sea level about 12 km west of Rathdowney.

It provides for an excellent day trip, with superb wildflower displays on the summit plateau and unparalleled close-up views of the central Scenic Rim and Mount Barney's craggy profile. The usual ascent takes about 3/4 day for the return trip.

As well as bushwalking, Mount Maroon is a popular destination for rockclimbers with many routes established.
