Cedra Circuit (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)

Easy

So glad to have found this short walk for Mr 6 to do when hes getting over a bout of sickness and needed to do SOMETHING other than Xbox! For a short walk, there are small small ups and downs and a few bridges which are nice for younger folk. It has been so dry so no water in the creek, but talking about the trees and sighting some kangaroos in the distance made it better than a wall around the suburbs.
White Rock Multi-User Trail (Ipswich)

Great to see so many families doing this very manageable walk today on ANZAC Day public holiday!
Disgusted to see so many people with dogs, though, when signs say they are not permitted.
Very interesting rock formation to see which many people were climbing, also against park rules.
Am I too much of a goody-goody??

Such a good little walk for such stunning scenery!

I participated in the River Run fun run which includes this boardwalk section as part of a 5km stretch of the Brisbane River which the runners loop back and forth on. I'm no flash runner but it sure is made easier when you have the beautiful river city views to distract you from the sweat and pain!
Coucal Trail (Queensland)

Very Easy

A great little track for younger folks. Enough twists, hills and bridges to keep their interest when conversation about whether or not there are crocodiles in the Brisbane River takes a pause.
Rainforest Circuit (Main Range National Park)

Easy

Even though the traffic of the busy road can be heard a fair way in to this walk, it is a lovely short dose of rainforest walking to soothe any soul.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)

It hadn't rained but this walk was still damp enough on the track to keep an eye on the feet at times. That is of course what you expect during any rainforest section of a walk. The ascent would make any walker puff, but not too much. It's a great cluster of peaks in this area.
Bare Rock + Morgan's Walk (Main Range National Park)
3 Jul, 2017
Medium
13km
4.5 hrs
After the ascent for Mt Cordeaux, walking across the saddle to this one was very manageable for a very rewarding view. The walk back down was so peaceful and beautiful. What a great area.
Mt. Coot-tha Summit Track (Mt. Cootha)
25 Jun, 2017
Medium
3.8km return
1 hr
Finally ticked this one off this afternoon after a weekend of big "I'm on holidays" meals. I was surprised at the good quality of the track and it didn't take too long at all to reach the summit. I nice bit of sweating and a rewarding view at the end :)
Simpsons Falls and Eugenia Circuit (Mt. Cootha)
8 Jan, 2017
Easy
4km

After a hiatus from exercise over the Christmas break, this was the track I needed to 'get back on track'.
I'm impressed by those who jog it in the afternoons but I can't understand why so many people take their dogs off-leash on these types of tracks when they're not allowed to have dogs at all.
I look forwarded to doing this walk again after a bit more rain and the falls will flow a bit more, as well as enjoying a bit of mud on the walk to decorate my pants.
