Araucaria Lookout

If you love panoramic views then this walk is for you. The track was a bit muddy due to the light rain the previous day. The path is a little overgrown in sections and I did see two snakes, definitely wear long pants for this one. Once the track splits from the Border Track the amount of traffic decreases significantly. The Border Track feeds most of the other tracks in the area so the traffic is a lot higher which reduces the chances to see wildlife, because of this it can be a bit of a slog. Despite this, the Orchid Bower and Araucaria lookouts were amazing and well worth the journey.

Tinchi Tamba Wetlands

A nice flat walk, best to combine all walks in the area. A good place for birding.

Tabbil-ban dhagun

Nice walk for birdwatchers. This area is supposed to be good to spot Rainbow Honeyeaters. I didn't see any but I could hear them.

Mary Cairncross Reserve

Another great visit. Saw plenty of interesting birds. Don't miss the fantastic lookout of the Glasshouse Mountains across the road.

Tweed River Walk

A nice walk for early morning or late afternoon. The boardwalk was closed to the public so hopefully it opens up again soon. It's probably the nicest part of the walk.

MacKenzie Falls Lookout Walk

Basic and easy walk but nice view of the falls. This walk is less crowded than the one to the base.

The Pinnacles

Amazing lookout at the top. Plenty to see on the way as well. This walk requires a bit of rock hopping towards the top (not steep enough to call it scrambling). The best view I've experienced in the Grampians so far. Highly recommend.

The Balconies

Was very busy with many tourists and hard to get a park. Nice views to be seen from Reeds Lookout and The Balconies. Don't miss the lookout from the area next to the fire watch tower.

Chatauqua Peak

Some spectacular rock formations to be seen. The lookouts are also great. The final section requires scrambling and can be quite tricky. There's good views even if you choose to not partake in the scramble. Do not attempt when wet as one slip could be fatal.

Olinda Falls

Nice small set of falls. As it's a short walk it's perfect if you are in a rush (to see other sites around the area).
