Mt Peel Bushland Reserve

There are about five different trails in the reserve, and you can do them in any order. This means you can do a few short walks or map out your own route and do a longer walk. Most of the walks are easy, with the exception of the climbs to the top of the two lookouts which are quite steep rough rock climbs. The views from both lookouts are well worth the effort though. The tracks have some signage, but it is still easy to get lost as the signs are too few and too far apart. There are a few tables and chairs at the lookouts so they make a good place to catch your breath, enjoy the view and maybe have something to eat. The walks are all through very open Eucalypt Forest and dry grass land. There are also a few dedicated mountain bike tracks in the reserve as well.

Flinders Peak

A steep climb up the northwestern ridge of Flinders Peak, passing over several crests giving expansive views north to Brisbane on the way up. As it climbs higher, views expand to include the Fassifern Valley and south west to Lamington plateau.

The final segment descends from Little Flinders across a col and ascends again to Flinders Peak. This is the most rugged section of the track and extra caution is required. Rock scrambling skills and strong boots are essential. Views from the peak can be stunning.

Mt Blaine Summit Trail

A challenging track to the summit of Mt Blaine. The trail consists of steep inclines and rock scrambling. The summit provides 360 degree view over Brisbane, Ipswich and the scenic rim and a great view of Flinders Peak. The track goes up the northern side, over the summit and back down the southern side. High level of fitness, off track experience, scrambling experience and solid boots are all recommended. Do not attempt this climb if you have knee problems, nervous conditions or vertigo.

Coomera Circuit

This track showsoff some of Binna Burra's best assets and is one of the prettiest walks in this section of the park. The waterfalls are at their best after rain. The track does cross over the Coomera River several times and crossings can become tricky if water levels are high.

Cradle Mountain Summit

A hike to the summit of Cradle Mountain. I would recommend staying at the mountain, as most accomodation is quite a distance from the visitors centre. The visitors centre opens at 8am, the first shuttle bus to the starting point leaves at 8:15 and the last return bus leaves at 6pm. No cars can drive to the lake at present inside these hours and if you miss the last bus it is about another 3 hour walk out so keep this in mind. If you do drive down before 8am, you can drive back inside these hours but you need to follow one of the busses as they are in radio contact with each other on the narrow one lane road. Personally I would recommend doing the loop via Hansons Peak and returning via Marrion's Lookout, in my opinion it is much better and less travelled, probably because it is a little longer and also because most walkers doing the Overland Track go via Marrion's. Amazing views the whole way and lots of options if you want to make the walk a little longer. Highly recommended, the best walk I have ever done.

A serene patch of bird-inhabited wetland in the midst of an agricultural and industrial area, Oxley Creek Common has a couple of easy paved walking trails and picnic amenities for the visitor.

One trail leads from the picnic area and themed info and amenity block Red Shed and splits into two before ending at two different bird habitats. For those keen to spot some of the 180 plus species of bird that inhabit this space, the best times to walk are at dawn and dusk though ornithological tendencies are not required to enjoy these walks.

Mt Ngungun

Mount Ngungun (pronounced 'noo noo')but generally known as "Gun Gun" is a very popular hike due to its relative ease and fantastic views. Traditional owners have asked that this mountain not be climbed.

A well defined graded track with some steep sections. The track begins in open forest with a fern understory. Part way up the mountain, there is a great view of Mt Tibrogargan as the track passes a small rock overhang. The summit provides spectacular close-up views of nearby Mt Tibrogargan, Mt Tibberoowuccum, Mt Coonowrin and Mt Beerwah.

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.
