Coomera Circuit (clockwise)

This track is Binna Burra's best waterfall walk and includes the incredible Coomera Gorge and Falls. The waterfalls are at their best after rain, but the track does cross over the Coomera River several times and crossings can become tricky if water levels are high. Most people seem to do this walk in an anticlockwise direction, probably because of the track signage and Qld National Parks recommendations. I prefer walking it clockwise, as it gets a lengthy and not particularly interesting 7km section of the Border Track over and done with early, leaving the most scenic section for the second part of the walk.

Purling Brook Falls & Natural Bridge

What can't you say about this majestic place. Around every corner is nature at its best with the bonus of waterfalls. This trek was a very easy 10ks with beauty that can not be matched. Enjoy. The 4hr trek was only because we were doing the tourist thing. I estimate 1.5hrs.

Numinbah Gap to Christmas Creek

A challenging 2-day or 3-day hike along the QLD/NSW border.

2-day option: camp at Echo Point
3-day option: camp at Bithongabel and Point Lookout

A good challenge for experienced walkers with good experience and navigation skills. Points of interest along the way include Bushranger's Cave, Mt Wagawn, Mt Hobwee, Dacelo Lookout, Merino Lookout, Bithongabel Lookout, Echo Point Lookout, Point Lookout, and the Stinson Crash.

This walk can be done in either direction. In any case, you will either have to do a car shuffle or very nicely ask friends or family to do a drop-off and pick-up.

Make sure that you take a PLB and proper emergency provisions (first aid kit, shelter, wet weather gear, warm clothes, extra food rations etc.).

Musgravea Track

This track is a multi-use track for walkers and mountain-bike riders. It is the only track in Djiru National Park where bicycles are permitted.

This mainly flat track is suitable for dry weather access and requires a medium level of fitness. It follows an old forestry road used in the 1960s and 1970s to haul timber from South Mission Beach to the El Arish timber mill. The track heads north from the car park at the Licuala day-use area and exits on to the El Arish–Mission Beach road about 2 km east of the Lacey Creek day-use area. For safety reasons, the old vehicle bridges have been removed and detours to the two creek crossings have been marked for walkers and cyclists. Bicycles will have to be carried down several steps, through the creek and up several steps at each creek crossing. Creeks in this area are subject to flash flooding and caution should be exercised.

Mount Perry Summit Walk

Mt Perry. The walk up to the tree line is the hardest part. About 1km , constantly going up, in the sun and warmth of the morning really takes it out of you. The track through the trees and up to the peak is quite a good one and anyone who enjoys a good bush walk should have no problem reaching the peak. Once there the views are fantastic.
