I was very confused by the old description of this walk as it indicated access only from the Caravan Park. I ended up scaling the rock at the end of the beach to cut the track near the lookout. Having now walked it twice, hopefully my new details will help other walkers.
Red Rock Walking Trail (Queensland)

This was not a very well advertised walk and I only found it on Springs Road by taking the only track off the road without a signpost! Well worth the effort, as this beach and shoreline trail to Red Rock Headland has great ocean views. As it was such a lovely day, I extended my walk by 2.8km, by walking the deserted beach from Red Rock to the next headland on the northern edge of Deepwater NP.
Round Hill Creek & Headland Track (Queensland)

Staying at 1770 Camp Ground for a few days, made this an obvious choice for my first walk here. A stroll up the sand to the Memorial and then out to the lookouts was a great way to spend an early morning. Extended my walk by taking a goat track on the eastern side from the start of Round Hill, which lead back to the over spill car park and the Anchor memorial to Countess Russell.

OMG! Can't remember ever being in a Paperbark Forest. How spectacular. And the day I was there, it was being used as the backdrop for a couple's wedding photos after they were married on the beach at Agnes Water; watched both.

What a great way to spend the early morning on this circuit, to the extent I did it again the next day! My favourite walk in the gorge.
Shamrock Mine to Castle Mountain Lookout (Cania Gorge National Park)

Very Hard
8km return

I am not going to credit myself with having completed this walk, but I had a good try! Crazy walk or what? The previous quoted times and distances were underestimated, now adjusted by extrapolating my GPS Track to the lookout, as well as updating the route description as far as I went. I though the original writer was kidding when they said 1.5hr to the rock face: no, correct!
I only came across one harmless Green Tree Snake, but then again, I made a lot of noise to ward off any others!
I'm coming back through this area next year on route to Carnarvon Gorge and will set aside a whole day to try and conquer this gruelling but challenging bushwalk.
Dripping Rock and The Overhang (Cania Gorge National Park)
15 Sep, 2018
Easy
3.2km return

Day two and four walks to cover, so this was the first. An early start meant not many on the track and time to have a good look around. This included working my way up the creek bed beyond The Overhang until the size of the boulders barred my way.
