Grasstree Track-Eagle's Nest Trail Loop, Redwood Park (Toowoomba)
20 Jun, 2022
Hard
6km
2 hrs
Nice pleasant walk with some good views across the escarpment at times. I went anticlockwise and it is hard not to miss the turn into grass tree walk so I would recommend using all trails or strata to track your route.

Nice easy flat walk along the creek. Lot of walking beside the road but also through nice parkland at times. Very cold this time of year.

My watch said that this walk was 7.2km and took about 2.5hours but we took the steep incline pretty slowly. The views are lovely and the first couple of kms get the heart started before easing off and heading back down returning to the car.

We couldn’t find the loop section once on the summit so did an up and back return walk which came in at 9km. Nice walk and easy access to he summit. Very windy on the summit ridge today with a storm threatening so didn’t hang around. Nice walk completed well under the NP recommended timeframes so not difficult at all.

Nice short walk imagining what it would have been like to hide out here in the caves.
Dr Roberts Waterhole (Girraween National Park)

This is a really easy flat walk to a stunning waterhole. Easy to tag on to a day of harder walking and worth the extra time.

Easy flat walk to a truly beautiful area. Well worth the visit and shouldn’t be missed.

After the majesty of the other walks this was a little boring. Would be a nice ride though which is what it is really meant to be.
Castle Rock (Girraween National Park)

Medium

Completed this along with the Sphinx and Turtle Rock today. More challenging than the Northern Circuit but the way back is mostly downhill which was nice. The Views from Castle Rock are worth the effort.

This walk is very different to the Northern Circuit with very little water flow but granite abounds on this largely uphill walk on the way out and it was picturesque in a different way. Largely downhill on the way back and we took the side trip to Castle Rock.
Wyberba Walk (Girraween National Park)
10 Feb, 2022
Very Easy
300m one-way

Completed the Northern circuit walks today. Started out towards the Pyramid. My husband wasn’t keen so I went on alone but after getting a third of the way up the last rock face I decided it wasn’t for me. I have made the summit many years ago and didn’t enjoy it. It’s not the height but the severe fear of falling backwards that takes away all enjoyment on these types of rock faces. Very achievable physically for moderate fitness though. The walk to the Junction and remainder of the bald creek circuit is stunning and highly recommended. Easy walking and just amazing scenery.

This is a delightful walk along the creek. We started in Folkestone Street and went left from the carpark if facing the creek. This took us down to red bridge and the more untamed part of the creek and along a rough track called Sean’s walk before retracing our steps and crossing the creek before heading in the other direction. Great way to stretch the legs after the drive from Brisbane.
