BVRT - Coominya to Mt Hallen (South East Queensland)
27 Jun, 2021
Easy
14km one-way
4.5 hrs
Another lovely section of the BVRT that I am slowly walking return sections of each weekend.
Lowood to Coominya Rail Trail (South East Queensland)
13 Jun, 2021
Medium
12km one-way
3 hrs
Slowly walking the rail trail up and back in sections of between 10-16km a section. Walked this section in two trips. This is a really flat section. Lowood are working on beautifying the sides of the rail trail with gardens and it is already looking amazing. Coominya is small but a lovely pub at the end.
Fernvale to Lowood - Part of BVRT (South East Queensland)

Nice flat walk today up and back between Fernvale and Lowood. Quite a hot day with no shade so I definitely do not recommend this in summer. Good views of the river in one section.
Wulkaraka to Fernvale - Part of BVRT (Queensland)
3 May, 2021
Medium
20km one-way
5 hrs
I don't have access to a car shuttle at the moment so I have taken 3 weekends to walk from Wulkuraka to Fernvale doing up and back in sections. Section 1 was from the train station at Wulkuraka to Muirlea station sign about 10km return. Section 2 from the Muirlea station sign to Borallon Station Road and then from Borallon Station Road up to Fernvale. The last section was the prettiest with lots of flowering grass and beautiful countryside. Definitely would be very hot in summer.
Borallon Station Road to Fernvale - Part of BVRT (Queensland)
25 Apr, 2021
Easy
15km one-way
3 hrs
Walked in two sections since we need to walk up and back. First section Borallon Station Road to Fairney View and then second stage from Fairney View to Fernvale. This is a lovely section of the walk, the nicest so far coming from Wulkuraka. Lovely farmland and a gorgeous autumn day.
Diamantina Boulevard to Borallon Station Road - Part of BVRT (Queensland)
18 Apr, 2021
Easy
10km one-way
2 hrs
Walked from Bayley Rd Muirlea at the end of the concrete bikeway to the Borallon station road carpark and return a total of 12km. Not much to see specifically but lovely quiet countryside filled with bird song. It was a nice time of year to do the walk, not too hot and beautiful clear blue sky.
Wulkuraka Station to Diamantina Boulevard - Part of BVRT (Ipswich)
2 Apr, 2021
Very Easy
3.8km one-way
90 mins
Decided to go west today to avoid the Easter traffic to the coasts.
This was a fairly uninspiring section of the BVRT but the next section promises more country scenery. I walked to Muirlea, 10km return and it was a flat easy walk.
Tugun Hill Conservation Area (Gold Coast)
13 Mar, 2021
Easy
2.5km return
45 mins
Completed the circuit which is just under 1km, so a very short walk. No view at the top but a pleasant bushland area.
Palm Beach Parklands (Gold Coast)
13 Mar, 2021
Very Easy
3.5km return
1 hr
This is a really lovely area and I had never been here before so keen to return with the SUP. We walked around both sections and still didn't quite make 3km so not very long and super easy walk.
Cougal Cascades (Springbrook National Park)
13 Mar, 2021
Very Easy
1.6km return
1 hr
Short walk and much further out of Currumbin than expected but worth the drive. Beautiful oasis of rainforest and gorgeous crystal clear creek area. Very busy on weekends so get there early to get a park.
Tallebudgera Creek Circuit (Gold Coast)
6 Mar, 2021
Easy
8km return
2 hrs
Completed this walk today plus a detour up Burleigh Ridge. Nice walk, quite a bit is along beside houses with not much of a view but also some very lovely parts of the walk beside the water. Nice and flat except for the side trip up the hill.
Mangrove Boardwalk (Coombabah Lakelands Conservation Area )

Nice short walk before we tackled the longer trails in the other section
Coombabah Lakelands Conservation Area (Coombabah Lakelands Conservation Area )

Easy
5km return

We walked just under 10km doing the majority of the tracks. Perfectly flat and wide trails with kangaroos. Nice place to get some exercise.
Frilled Neck Lizard Circuit (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)

Medium
2.5km return

I couldn't find the Springfield lakes entrance to the Ironbark trail so we started from the Frilled Neck Lizard Circuit and walked the longer portion of the Ironbark trail and back to finish the circuit. The Ironbark circuit particularly is quite sandy so this would not be pleasant when wet but it is a lovely walk in the forest.

We walked up the main trail and then back via the ridge track. It is a relatively easy walk, particularly this trail as its flat and wide. Beautiful bush and White Rock itself is a very special place.

We walked up via the main walk and back via the ridge track. The Ridge Track is quite spectacular and apart from a short rock scramble easy to navigate. Well worth coming back this way.
Lagoon Creek Walk (Queensland)

Very Easy
4km return

Nice short and flat walk. Its not very peaceful with the highway and airport so close but the forest was pretty and it was an easy place to stretch the legs.
The Northbrook River Trail (Northbrook Gorges) (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
2 Feb, 2021
Medium
6km

Absolutely beautiful place to visit. The walk is not strenuous but it is slow going as you have to constantly watch where you are walking. I highly recommend a mid week walk if you can manage it as it was really quiet with only two other groups on the day and we managed to have the track to ourselves most of the morning.
