The size of the blaze remains unclear at this stage.

Although no homes are under threat, crews are believed to be undertaking some precautionary property protection.

There are multiple crews in attendance, including crews from Coomera Valley, Tamborine Mountain, Helensvale and Guanaba.

Crews have received a number of calls from concerned residents watching smoke billow from the mountain. Smoke is now becoming visible from northern areas of the Gold Coast, including Hope Island.
