Boggy Creek Walk

The track took a bit of a beating from a recent storm but it was still walkable. Not too much to see compared to the tracks to Minyon Falls but this is an easy in comparison.

Peates Mountain

This one was a bit disappointing as the 'impressive views' are overgrown are no longer visible from the peak. If you want to make this one a bit easier I suggest leaving the peak via the management trail / Peates Mountain Road.

Border Loop Walk

A short one to stretch the legs. Don't forget to visit the lookout.

Pinnacle walk and lookout

A spectacular lookout, recommended. Drove in from the west side of the National Park, Tweed Range Scenic Drive on the eastern side was closed (due to the recent weather events) so it was a long drive to get to the highway :-/

Rocks Circuit

Not too much to see but be on the look out for Koalas and other wildlife. This area is well signed. The boulder section would be a nice place for a picnic.

Cedar Creek Falls

A nice set of small waterfalls which are easy to access. Get there early otherwise it will be difficult getting a car park near the entrance.

Curtis Falls

Was busy but the waterfall did look pretty good after a decent rain.

Lower Beechmont Conservation Area (Eastern Section)

Not too much to see but there's a lot of choice. This one isn't a National Park, the council allows dogs on leash, horses and bicycles.

Ships Stern Circuit

This one is long but definitely worth it. The views of Binna Burra and Numinbah Valley were truly spectacular. Some wildlife to see as well.

I went around anti-clockwise, based off the elevation profile this seems to be better. Roughly 50% long gradual descend, 30% flat and 20% moderate ascend. If you do this clockwise you're going to have 50% long gradual ascend at the end :-/

I did all the side tracks which makes the total distance 26km. Ballanjui Cascades is worth a look but if you are time restricted I would skip Booboora Falls and Guraigumai Rock. If you are feeling energetic check out Charraboomba Rock, don't feel guilty if you skip this one though, once you reach Ships Stern you'll get plenty of amazing views. I'd definitely recommend Lower Ballanjui Falls. Probably the largest waterfall I've seen, the sheer scale is remarkable.

Lower Ballanjui Falls

A spectacular set of falls, hard to describe the sheer scale. There's some great lookouts along the way too. Definitely worth the journey. If you are feeling energetic you might want to consider the Ships Stern circuit.
