Curtis Falls

This enchanting walk begins in wet eucalypt forest beneath towering flooded gums. Notice a drop in temperature as the wet eucalypt forest merges into lush rainforest. Beautiful crows nest and staghorn ferns can be seen in the canopy above. The rock pool and surrounding basalt rock face provide important glow-worm and platypus habitat.

Sandy Creek Circuit

This walk features lush rainforest with towering trees emerging through the canopy and at the falls, eucalypt forest. It follows Sandy Creek out to the western lookout of Cameron Falls, where on a clear day you can enjoy views across the valley to Mount Flinders and the southern suburbs of Brisbane.

This Track travels close to steep cliff edges, so stay on the designated track and behind the fences.

The falls are aligned such that under the correct conditions a rainbow will appear. It has been seen in the afternoon in late July.

Mt Boulder Round Trip

Make your way to the Mothar Mountain Rock Pools just south of Gympie off Noosa road on Hill Rd
Note the first part of the trail takes you up Boulder mountain at 490m above sea-level with the last section being steep and slippery when wet so judge your level of fitness and also how safe the conditions are on the day.
Once you reach the top follow the access trail (for the communication towers) past the warning sign saying it is 10km back to the rock pools down the other side of the mountain.
You will hit a T section in the road, simply take the right (should be signed) back to your starting point.

Notes:
The view is NOT spectacular from the top of the mountain but if you look you can find some views.
Once you turn right at the intersection be careful of possible 4x4 traffic especially on the weekends.
If the conditions are right the Rock pools are a great way to cool off after the walk!

Mount Beerburrum

A paved but very steep walk leads 700 metres uphill through a small area of rainforest, then winds up through eucalyptus woodland to a fire tower. There is a 360 degree view of the Glass House Mountains and other parts of South East Queensland from the summit. On a clear day, Brisbane CBD is visible too. When descending the fire tower, go down backwards as you would with any ladder, several people have tried to go down forward and had very nasty accidents.

Mt. Tibrogargan summit - Caves Route

Could be also classified as a very hard bushwalk or an easy rock climb. Either way this is a short but classic scramble that displays the complexity of Tibro's majestic east face, on a series of unforgettable pitches, each with their own character and style.
Some parties prefer a roped ascent when some climbers think the solo effort is the way to fully enjoy the tremendous exposure this route delivers.
Route finding is easy and straightforward but falling is not an option on most parts. Some fixed abseiling/belay station are present at convenient spots to either retreat safely or bring following climbers up on a rope.
Each pitch of the whole route can be abseiled with a 60m rope and the experience is equal to the climb.
The hardest climbing move is below the big chimney, basic rock climbing skills are required to make a couple of grade 14/15 moves to build a belay or install an aid point.
Descent can be made safely via tourist track (very busy at times) or as mentioned, abseiling back (5 abseils).
Helmet and grippy shoes are mandatory and the route shouldn't be attempted when wet or downclimbed by the novice.

Peates Mountain

An interesting walk through the semi-tropical forest of the Whian Whian Conservation Area (Nightcap NP). Remnants of red cedar logging exist with the stumps showing the cut marks from the cutters planks, as well as an old cedar trunk bridge across one of the creeks.

Peates Mountain (once known as Peach Mountain) once had a fire lookout tower, that provided extensive views of the area from Lismore in the west to the eastern coast. Sadly this no longer exists and we are left with a ordinance obelisk.
