Girraween to Bald Rock Circuit (Girraween National Park)
25 Aug, 2023
2 days
Great walk, tough in places.

I would recommend not bush-bashing at around -28.850269, 152.015041 but keep to the Border Fire Trail, then turn west at -28.841270, 152.017444 and pick up the trail across Paling Creek.

A nice peaceful night at the bush camp on my own. Lots of friendly pademelons on the track today.

Beautiful waterfall and swimming hole. Great to cool off on a hot day.

Saw 3 snakes at the bottom crawling amongst the rocks.
Warrie Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

Pretty busy on the trail today.

Great walk, not too much water in the falls but that meant that there were no leeches too.
Cooloola Great Walk (original inland route) (Great Sandy National Park)
16 Aug, 2017
88.1km one-way
5 days
I started from the bus stop in Tewantin and walked to the start of the walk proper which added 5km to day 1. If you can get dropped closer it would be better as your pack is heaviest on the first day.

Walked south to north over 5 days solo. 3 nights had the camps to myself, very few people around.

Packed way too much stuff in hindsight but was worth it. Camps 1 & 2 were the highlight for me.
Box Forest (Lamington National Park)
28 May, 2017
5 hrs
Beautiful walk along easy graded tracks.
Aquila Loop (D'Aguilar National Park)
6 May, 2017
2 days
12 year old son and I did the loop anti-clockwise which seems to be easier looking at the profile.

Stayed overnight at the bush camp. Drifted off to the sound of the creek bubbling away.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)

Beautiful walk on a clear, crisp and sunny day. Views are spectacular.

Easy, well-maintained track.
Lower Portals (Mt Barney National Park)
12 Feb, 2017
7.4km return
3 hrs
Hot, hot, hot. Lovely walk and the waterhole is stunning but coming back it was 43 degrees! We were well-prepared (me, wife and 2 kids ages 12 and 10) but we met a couple as we were walking out who were on the way in wearing thongs with just 2 bottles of water!
Scrub Road bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park)
17 Sep, 2016
2.5 hrs
Walked in and camped overnight with my 11 year old son. Fairly steep on the walk back to the car but an easy walk nonetheless.
Somerset Trail (D'Aguilar National Park)
13km return
3 hrs
Done a few times with the kids while camping at Neurum Creek. Easy walk with good views at the Lakes Lookout.
Gheerulla Valley Circuit (Mapleton National Park)
26 Jul, 2015
6 hrs
For a novice like me this was about all I would attempt at once. Some lovely spots along the way but the climb up the bluff was a killer!

Take plenty of water, especially in the warmer months. I filled up from the creek opposite the trail bike camping area before the climb.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

Great walk up with the kids (10 and 8). Cold and very windy but we had a hot drink at the top and admired the fantastic views.
