Baxter Falls - Southern Approach (Kondalilla National Park)
2 Apr, 2019
Medium
6.8km return
2.5 hrs
It is almost two years to the day, since we walked to Baxter Falls from the north. Difficulty? About the same by my reckoning. With the recent storms, I was looking forward to more water over the falls, and I was not disappointed, but still able to rock hop across the creek for a better view.
Cooloolabin Dam (Sunshine Coast)

Having just done Point Glorious, this walk was an easy option on the way out. Not a sole about, except for a few wild pigs heard squealing and snuffling in the undergrowth! Interesting that there is no restriction to stop you walking under the dam wall and slipway from the bottom of the car park.
Cooloolabin Conservation Park - Kiamba Rd Section. (Mapleton National Park)

Not so much a walk, more a way of like, to visit this serene spot with its rock pools and cascading waters.
Wappa Falls (Sunshine Coast)

With low water levels in the dam due to the dry weather, there was little to no water flowing, which was disappointing.

Yep, the reward is in the views from the lookout, as the walk in was not very exciting, being just a gravel road.
Komine Circuit (Parklands Conservation Park)

This was the most confusing walk and even with the map, I made a mistake, going straight out to the far side of the park, instead of turning right down Under Hill track.

First ventured into the Parklands in 2017, so this was an opportunity to complete the rest of the walks. Lovely and peaceful, but can't say that I could get very excited about them. Despite what the information board says, there are no longer glimpses of the coast through the trees!
