Water Tower Circuit (Ipswich - Demark HIll Conservation Park)
1 May, 2017
Easy
800m return
30 mins
Best walk in the reserve. The views from the top of the watertower are great.
Waterfall Track (Ipswich - Demark HIll Conservation Park)
1 May, 2017
Very Easy
200m
30 mins
Not too much to see. Couldn't see any sign of a waterfall. A very short walk.
Quarry Circuit (Ipswich - Demark HIll Conservation Park)
1 May, 2017
Very Easy
400m
30 mins
Very short and easy. Might be a good place to walk the dog (there were a few).
Bluey’s Circuit (Ipswich - Demark HIll Conservation Park)
1 May, 2017
Easy
800m
1 hr
Easy and short. Not too much to see. There are many signs but they are inconsistent at times.
Cliveden Avenue Reserve (Queensland)
29 Apr, 2017
Very Easy
2.2km return
40 mins
Short easy and flat. Nice place to see some horses. Was expecting to see more birds here since it's so close to Oxley Creek Common. A small section of the track was really muddy due to recent rain.
Eagleby Wetlands (Queensland)
25 Apr, 2017
Easy
3km return
1 hr
Great for birding. Watch out in the afternoon for mosquitoes, even after applying heaps of repellent they were still swarming us.
Coucal Trail (Queensland)
25 Apr, 2017
Very Easy
2.8km return
45 mins
Didn't see any coucals but there were a few decent views of the Brisbane River along the way.
Boggy Creek Trail (Nightcap National Park)
15 Apr, 2017
Easy
4.8km return
90 mins
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 (Nightcap National Park)
15 Apr, 2017
Medium
11.6km return
4 hrs
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 (Border Ranges National Park)
14 Apr, 2017
Easy
1.2km return
30 mins
A short one to stretch the legs. Don't forget to visit the lookout.
Pinnacle Walk and Lookout (Border Ranges National Park)
14 Apr, 2017
Very Easy
800m return
30 mins
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 (Karawatha Forest)
9 Apr, 2017
Easy
3.4km return
45 mins
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 (Tamborine National Park)
1 Apr, 2017
Easy
1km return
30 mins
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 (Tamborine National Park)
1 Apr, 2017
Easy
1.2km return
45 mins
Was busy but the waterfall did look pretty good after a decent rain.
Lower Beechmont Conservation Area (Eastern Section) (South East Queensland)
25 Mar, 2017
Easy
7.68km return
2 hrs
Not too much to see but there's a lot of choice. This one isn't a National Park, the council allows horses and bicycles.
Ships Stern Circuit (Lamington National Park)
25 Mar, 2017
Medium
21km
7 hrs
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 (Lamington National Park)
25 Mar, 2017
Medium
11km return
4 hrs
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.
Python Rock (Lamington National Park)
11 Mar, 2017
Easy
3.4km return
1 hr
Another great visit. Check out the Pat's Bluff track while you're here (adds an extra 20min to the walk).
Pats Bluff (Lamington National Park)
11 Mar, 2017
Easy
5.4km return
2 hrs
Breathtaking views, possibly the best in the area. Highly recommended. The entrance was hard to find so did the circuit starting through Luke's Farm, the track through here is a little unclear so best to bring a map. You might want to check out Luke's Bluff while you're in that section. Returning via the standard track was a lot clearer. About 5 minutes from the road a tree has fallen (seems like a while ago), there is orange tape to guide you around this.
Tallebudgera Creek Circuit (Gold Coast)
5 Mar, 2017
Easy
8km return
2 hrs
A nice one for the late afternoon or early morning, most of the track does not have tree coverage so bring a hat. Great views to be seen along the way. Plenty of places to stop for a picnic or swim.
