Boulder Mountain (Woondum National Park)
22 Jan, 2023
Hard
3.2km return
2.5 hrs
We started on cool early morning yet were dripping sweat by the time we got to the top. Can’t say there was any ‘reward’ at the top as the tree line obscures your view but was certainly a challenge and a great training exercise.

Amama Walk (Amamoor State Forest)

Medium
2.2km return

Early Sunday morning walk and there were plenty of people to talk to on the way around. Some of us rock hopped and scrambled up the creek which was great fun before the huff and puff of reaching the top of the ridge and then a welcome decent.
Rainforest Walk (Amamoor State Forest)
6 Aug, 2022
Easy
1.2km return
30 mins
Camped at Cedar Creek for a couple of days and this was an easy introduction to the various walks in the area. With the recent floods parts had been washed out making the river crossing difficult.
Macadamia Walk (Amamoor State Forest)
6 Aug, 2022
Easy
1.2km return
30 mins
An easy starter for ‘four’, as there are a number of interesting walks that start from the Amama Day Use area.
Laurel Bank Park (Toowoomba)
26 Jul, 2022
Very Easy
900m return
30 mins
Sometimes when you are stuck in town, you just have to get out and have a look around and see what you can find. A sign says ‘park’ so follow it.
Donnelly’s Castle (Darling Downs South West)
25 Jul, 2022
Easy
800m return
45 mins
This was fun after a hearty lunch at the Stanthorpe Cheese Factory climbing to the lookout and then investigating the various routes through the ‘caves’ below.
Broadwater Loop (Darling Downs South West)
25 Jul, 2022
Medium
5.7km return
105 mins
I had no idea where I was going on this walk, just had to work it out for myself as there was no signage. I lost count of the number of creek crossings and there is no easy way to cross other than to get your feet wet or use whatever materials were available to get to the other side. What fun and a welcome beer at the Retreat Brewery on my return.
Mt Mackenzie Lookout (New South Wales)
24 Jul, 2022
Easy
600m return
30 mins
This was more about the view from the lookout than the walk to the trig.
Thunderbolts Cave (New South Wales)
24 Jul, 2022
Easy
600m return
30 mins
Interesting. Just makes you wonder how he ever found the cave in the first place given its location. Can only assume the locals indigenous people told him about it.
Skywalk Lookout (Dorrigo National Park)
23 Jul, 2022
Very Easy
200m return
15 mins
It was cold and wet the day we were there and a coffee and a warming fire were very welcome. The clouds were down and there were no views to be seen from the end of the Skywalk.
Dangar Falls (New South Wales)
23 Jul, 2022
Easy
1.1km return
30 mins
This is little hidden gem of a waterfall and swimming pool, off the beaten track and no signposting. Think the Dorrigo locals keep it to themselves!
Ebor Falls (Guy Fawkes River National Park)
23 Jul, 2022
Easy
3.1km return
1 hr
Edgars Lookout (Oxley Wild Rivers National Park)
23 Jul, 2022
Very Easy

Not really a bushwalk, but an awesome view of Chandler River Gorge.
