Giwadha Track (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)
12 Sep, 2015
Easy
2km
1 hr
A nice track without having to leave the city. There are a number of shorter tracks that branch of Giwadha but keep an eye in the direction you're going as some signs have disintegrated from termite activity. The tracks are also suitable for runners, mountain bikes and bird watchers.

View? Nope.
Crebra Circuit (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)

Easy

1yr Nephews first hike and it was great to see how in awe he was of the trees, forest. Dirt track with minimal Boardwalk.
Mt Cooroora (Sunshine Coast)

Hard

Best track I've done in a while. Beautiful day, view and you're sure to get the heart pumping. It's quite an adventure getting up so suggest shoes with good grip and water. We started the climb late morning and the sun made it more challenging. The legs ached in a good way for the next few days.

Note: GPS sent as all over the show. Locals advised it's now called Mt Kramer.
Banksia Track (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)
Jul, 2015
Easy
1km
18 mins
Great short walk to take little kids or one for Summer when it gets too hot as it's lovely and cool. Mostly Boardwalk. Highly recommend insect repellent as the Mosquitos were in force.

Aboriginal Artwork Track (Mt. Coot-tha)
8 Sep, 2013
Very Easy
1.4km

Disappointed to see such limited artwork. Would be wonderful if they added more to it..a community endeavour. Highlight was gourmet breakfast at the park afterwards as the walk still builds up an appetite.

Great waterfall, lot of snakes that day.
Box Forest (Lamington National Park)
Jan, 2009
Medium
10.6km
5 hrs
Track is in the backyard of O'Reillys Rainforest Retreat so makes for a nice getaway after breakfast. I highly recommend their villas just wish we had stayed longer to enjoy all the other tracks Lamington is famous for.
Natural Bridge (Springbrook National Park)
2009
Very Easy
1km return
30 mins
Lovely first date and swim until we were covered in leaches. Lol.
Simpsons Falls and Eugenia Circuit (Mt. Coot-tha)
2009
Easy
4km
90 mins
Little rain made this a very dull and uninspiring track. What made it all the more interesting is talking about Mt Coothas rich history and mysteries of tragedies, murders and suicide dating back to 1927.
National Pass, Overcliff and Den Fenella Circuit (Blue Mountains National Park)
Jun, 2008
Hard
5km return
4 hrs
One of the best walks I've been on despite being so unfit and struggling on the stairs back. Views and waterfalls well worth it. A very pleasant surprise made even more beautiful with autumn leaves out in their splendour. Just keep a hot flask on hand.
National Pass (Blue Mountains National Park)
Jun, 2008
Hard
3.5km return
3.5 hrs
Just make sure you go the right direction otherwise the grand staircase is a big "holy beep" uphill trek. Regardless one of the best walks I've been on despite being so unfit and struggling. Views and waterfalls well worth it. A very pleasant surprise made even more beautiful with autumn leaves out in their splendour. Just keep a hot flask on hand.
Echo Point to Scenic World via Giant Stairway (Blue Mountains National Park)
Jun, 2008
Medium
4.2km one-way
2.5 hrs
Schedule in a full day of exploring with the beautiful advantage points and various walks. This one isn't long but highly recommend shoes with grip as I only managed to do half as a result of the very steep stairs, high wind factor and recent rains. Heeled boots will not get you far! Pity coz I looked fabulous. Lol 😉
