West Canungra Creek Circuit

The circuit descends to 'Yerralahla' (blue pool) passing by some large rainforest trees including red cedar Toona ciliata, and then follows the creek for most of its length, crossing it several times. Eels inhabit the West Canungra Creek. They bite when threatened and injuries have occurred. Creek crossings may be difficult to navigate and the circuit might not be obvious in places. Take particular care at creek crossings, especially after rain. Check track conditions with a ranger before you leave. The circuit exits via the Box Forest circuit.

Northbrook Mtn bush camp walk

Remote bush camping on a high ridge overlooking Kipper Creek in wet sclerophyll forest. Northbrook Mountain summit is approximately a 15-minutes walk from the campsite. The summit affords extensive views looking south across the England Creek catchments and is covered in mountain heath, where wildflowers bloom between winter and spring.
Some areas thick with bell miners but away from them plenty of other species.

There is a much nice alternate, albeit less obvious or well trodden route to the lookout near the camp.

Follow the path as normal - once you see the sign AS0361 there is a steep(ish) oot track on the left. If you download What3words the exact location (revisited.sharks.silent). This route is slower going and often quiet steep but considerably more scenic off the 4wd 🚙 track.

If taking it from the lookout, just follow the ridge line at the lookout and you’ll notice a footpath. The Initial descent is tricky but don’t let that scare you off. Once you get going the scenery is great.

Little Dandahra Creek Walking Track

13km relatively easy return walk (Grade 3). Can be started at the Dandahra picnic area car park, or drive on to Mulligan's campground and start the walk from there. We parked at the Dandahra picnic area which is just off the highway. This is a lovely track which follows the beautiful flowing Dandahra Creek. Plenty of spots to dip your toes in. Bring a hat on this walk as there isn't much tree cover, this area has been affected by bush-fires last year and is regenerating. There are interesting boulder formations along the way. This walk is largely flat with only a few steeper sections, overall it is an easy 13km return. Mulligan's campground is a great spot for lunch.

From Parks NSW website; "Little Dandahra Creek walking track is the ideal way to get acquainted with the landscape of Gibraltar Range National Park. This superb walking track leads you past enormous granite outcrops, through montane heathlands and alongside pristine waterways. Take a break and soak in the cool running waters and natural pools of Little Dandahra Creek, where you’ll feel dwarfed by the magnificent rocky landscape. Keep your binoculars close for birdwatching, there are many birds that feed and breed in the area.

This track is great for those looking to go hiking for the first time as it is quite an easy day’s trek. Mulligans campground awaits you at the other end where you can set up a tent and put the billy on to boil."

Mount Solitary

CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO FIRES AND ROCKFALL
This day hike takes you on the Golden Stairs, past the Ruined Castle rock formation, and a rock scrabble up to Mount Solitary. Amazing views of the across Jamison's Valley and surrounding areas. Like all the guidebooks and signs say, this is for experienced bushwalkers and I would highly recommend not doing it solo due to the exposure during the scrabble up to Mount Solitary. If you feel like walking a little further, there are aboriginal cave paintings at Chinaman's Gap. Please be respectful and follow all instructions on the signs.

Boonah to Ipswich Trail

This trail forms the backbone of all trails in the Conservation Estate, and connects the two picnic areas. It caters for hiking, horse riding and recreational touring (mountain bike riding). At 38 km return, this trail becomes challenging. Experienced walkers would need to start early in the morning to complete a return trip, requiring at least a 10 to 14 hour day. Note that the conservation estate is open between the hours of 6am and 6pm. Alternatively, a 19km one way walk could be considered for those who can organise travel/accommodation arrangements at the other end. Rugged mountain scenery, views to the coast from Mt Flinders, creek crossings and diverse landscapes such as dry rainforest and heath will reward you.

Mt Castle

Mt Castle is situated North of the more iconic Mt Cordeaux along the Great Dividing Range. Though you technically lose elevation making your way from the carpark to the summit don't let this fool you, it is a very long and challenging hike. There are sections of scrambling along exposed cliffs, bush bashing and steep inclines in either direction. That being said, the walk has some of the best views of the Great Dividing Range.
