Wollomombi Walk to Chandler Falls Lookout (Oxley Wild Rivers National Park)
23 Jul, 2022
Easy
4.1km return
90 mins
The views of the gorges and falls are awe inspiring and you just have to get to the next lookout as they get better and better.
Chandler Walk To Viewpoint (Oxley Wild Rivers National Park)
23 Jul, 2022
Medium
3.2km return
90 mins
A little harder than the other walks in the area, but with three viewing areas, each with a difference angle on the gorges and falls it is well worth it.
Capricorn Caves (Mount Etna Caves National Park)
30 Jun, 2022
Easy
1.5km return
1 hr
Twin Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)
25 Jun, 2022
Medium
4.6km return
90 mins
Middle of winter, freezing cold and this place was packed. No parking available at Purling Brook so did Twin Falls as the next best option and it was well worth it, with the various waterfalls that you walk behind, rock pool picnic area, rock clefts to walk through and lush rainforest as you walk along the bottom of the 80m cliff face.
Best Of All Lookout (Springbrook National Park)
25 Jun, 2022
Very Easy
700m return
30 mins
This really was a short walk, but the view from the lookout out across to Mount Warning was fantastic.
Royal Botanic Gardens (Melbourne City Walks)
10 Jun, 2022
Easy
4.6km return
90 mins
Never thought of my walk around the Botanic Gardens as a ‘bushwalk’, but on returning from Melbourne discovered that a contributor had just posted this for the first time. Could it have been we were both there on the same day? No not quite.
There is always a wealth of information around these places on the various tree species that help identification when out in the wilds.
Littoralis Trail (Mooloolah River National Park)
8 Feb, 2022
Easy
2.7km return
1 hr
I don’t usually comment on subsequent walk visits, but in this case, there was a purpose to the revisit. In late 2021 this area was devastated by a bush fire that took out 300ha. I wanted to see the devastation and also to see how it was recovering.
The primarily lowland wetland habitat was destroyed, but nature is a wonderful thing and the grasses, ferns and ground level plants are back, but as yet no evidence of tree and scrub growth.
Emerald Woods (Sunshine Coast)
6 Feb, 2022
Very Easy
1.8km return
45 mins
Never really regarded this as a ‘bushwalk’, but as it all but walking distance from home, thought I should check it out after someone recently posted it. And what a surprise. In the hearty of suburbia is this small enclave of wetland magic. Towering tree and palms of all descriptions as well as dense ground level foliage.
Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk (South East Queensland)
22 Jan, 2022
Easy
1.5km return
1 hr
Botanic Gardens to Mt Coot-tha (Mt. Coot-tha)
14 Oct, 2021
Medium
7.3km return
3 hrs
A day out at the Botanic Gardens ended with an exhaustive walk to Mt Coot-tha summit lookout on a very warm afternoon. And yes, I got a lift back down!
Lagoon Walk (Sunshine Coast)
15 Aug, 2021
Easy
1.6km return
1 hr
Mary Cairncross Reserve (Sunshine Coast)
11 Jun, 2021
Very Easy
2km return
1 hr
Coomba Water Hole (Wide Bay Burnett)
19 May, 2021
Easy
800m return
30 mins
Amazing. It is 9am and this little out of the way waterhole already had two other visiting parties! Loved working my way across the boulders at the neck to get to the far side.
The Palms Circuit (Wide Bay Burnett)
19 May, 2021
Medium
700m return
30 mins
Small on park, huge on flora. The tallest Piccabeen Palms I have ever seen and add in the three and five hundred year old trees in this enclave was awe inspiring.
On leaving, I ended up having to herd seven cows back off the road into a field and shut the gate! Given I was on my own and only my red truck to block their way, it was quite funny.
Stony Creek (Bellthorpe National Park)
19 May, 2021
Easy
600m return
30 mins
Last walk of a 10 day road trip covering 2,300km and completing 98km on 25 walks; climbed 1,200m that took 38h. Eight of the walks are new and have been loaded on this site.
Time to get back to some home comforts, as it is pouring with rain here!
Lake Broadwater The Hide (Darling Downs South West)
18 May, 2021
Easy
7.2km return
2 hrs
This walk defeated me the first time, when I took the left fork to nowhere! Back the next morning and take the right fork down though to the lake and around to the hide and back. You know you are getting closer to the lake as the crescendo of bird calls gets louder and louder.
Westcliff Lookout (Bunya Mountains)
18 May, 2021
Easy
4.8km return
75 mins
Not having been into Bunya Mountains, I did not appreciate how beautiful and extensive this region was. I only had a day in here, so tried to cover as many walks as possible. But the reality is you need to stay in Dandabah Village and explore the area more fully.
The morning sun on the shiny Bunya Tree pinnacles is quite a spectacle.
Paradise and Little Falls (Bunya Mountains)
18 May, 2021
Easy
2.5km return
45 mins
No time to complete the eastern circuit, so this short walk down to Little Falls gave me a feel for the eastern side of Bunya Mountain. Unfortunately, there was not a lot of water flowing, but after a good down poor, this would be pretty awesome.
Koondaii Circuit (Bunya Mountains)
18 May, 2021
Hard
2.5km return
1 hr
Yet another view to the west of Bunya Mountains, but this time a little further north. Only wish I had had time to see what the eastern views were like from Barker, Big Falls and Pine Gorge Lookouts. Next time!
Mount Kiangarow (Bunya Mountains)
18 May, 2021
Medium
2.3km return
1 hr
Last walk of the day having covered over 20km on five walks today starting at 8am. No wonder I am feeling tired and looking forward to a well deserved drink and a hot meal. Interesting to hear the dingos howling somewhere on the mountains in the late afternoon.
