Underground Creek (Girraween National Park)
2 Jun, 2023
Medium
3.8km return
105 mins
The last time we visited here we were unaware of the ‘unofficial’ track that takes you to the platform above the creek, which we found challenging and most rewarding.
Dr Roberts Waterhole (Girraween National Park)

Castle Rock (Girraween National Park)
1 Jun, 2023
Hard
4.4km return
90 mins
Getting to the face of the rock was the easy bit. From then on it is a scramble and a precarious walk across the exposed granite to the top. Fantastic views and well worth the effort.
The Sphinx and Turtle Rock (Girraween National Park)
1 Jun, 2023
Medium
7km return
2.5 hrs
An easier trek following the hairy scramble to the top of Castle Rock. Views of Turtle Rock are best from back at The Sphinx although reckoned it resembled an elephant lying on its side more than a turtle.
Sawn Rocks (Mount Kaputar National Park)

Easy

Yulludunida Walking Track (Mount Kaputar National Park)
30 May, 2023
Hard
4km return
4 hrs
I have to say that we tried to complete this walk, but the unmarked track to the ridge and then along to the top of Mt Yulludunida beat us. It would have taken us another two hours in and back and the risks were too great for someone my age.
The Governor (Mount Kaputar National Park)

Mt Kaputar (Mount Kaputar National Park)

Bundabulla Circuit (Mount Kaputar National Park)
30 May, 2023
Easy
3.7km return
90 mins
This was the last walk I had not completed or been recorded on Mount Kaputar after two visits. It was a great way to finish off this trip with a leisurely walk along the southern perimeter. I have to say that the markers down to Bundabulla Lookout were a little vague and took the wrong track more than once and had to really concentrate to get back on the circuit.
Eckford Lookout (Mount Kaputar National Park)

Sandstone Caves (Pilliga Nature Reserve)

Breadknife and Grand High Tops Circuit (Warrumbungle National Park)
26 May, 2023
Hard
13km return
6 hrs
What was meant to be the highlight of our trip, was met with a cold wet day that was unforgiving and the cloud cover obliterated any views of the Breadknife or from Grand High Tops. But ‘we never gave up’ and finally got a few photos in when the clouds clear on our way back.
Tara Cave (Warrumbungle National Park)
25 May, 2023
Easy
4km return
90 mins
When we were last here in 2017, this walk was closed due to damage incurred in the 2013 bushfires. Now open and the track cleared this was an enjoyable early morning walk.
Fans Horizon (Warrumbungle National Park)
25 May, 2023
Medium
3.8km return
105 mins
I had an afternoon spare, so decided on this ‘unrecorded’ walk. Can’t say I could get very excited about it, with no views till you reach the lookout. It is a long 900+ steps up and then a knee jarring return, although the views from the lookout were rewarding.
Belougery Split Rock (Warrumbungle National Park)
24 May, 2023
Hard
4.6km return
3.5 hrs
On a three day stop over, we were lucky as this was the only day we could climb Split Rock due to ‘hazard reduction’. The scramble to the summit was well worth the effort with the wonderful views it provided. Personally, I would do the circuit clockwise, as the climb up is less steep and provides a better perspective of the rock formations.
Whitegum Lookout (Warrumbungle National Park)

Very Easy

Basket Swamp Falls (Basket Swamp National Park)
22 May, 2023
Medium
1.1km return
75 mins
Lahs, how the hell did you find this place?

Turned out to be one of the best waterfall adventures we have ever done once you get your head around rock hopping and climbing back under the falls.
