Granite Arch (Girraween National Park)
Apr, 2018
Easy
1.7km return
30 mins
The signage is pretty vague but there's so much natural beauty here it's worth muddling through. We were passing through late in the day so we only did this quick easy Granite Arch circuit but it was great, waterholes and rock formations abound.
Ghinghion Lookout (Bunya Mountains)

Easy

This walk has the most amazing lookout at the end, I definitely recommend it to everyone who goes to the Bunyas.
Russel Park Walking Tracks (Bunya Mountains)

If you take the tracks straight down to the lookout from the picnic area, the track is fairly well maintained and easy. If you do the loop, there is a large section that is unrelentingly steep and has a LOT of loose rocks and overgrown sections. The view is fabulous, but it's not great footing.
Scenic Circuit (Bunya Mountains)

This walk packs in so many great views, different landscapes, crystal clear creeks... really fantastic scenery and wildlife.
Mee-bor-rum Circuit (Moogerah Peaks National Park)
May, 2017
Easy
840m return
20 mins
SO many grass trees, a sea of them, I've never seen them so thick on the ground. The views were good and it was a nice easy walk.
Queen Mary Falls Circuit (Main Range National Park)
May, 2017
Easy
2km return
45 mins
We went clockwise for this walk, and I'd recommend that. There are a lot of stairs in that section. The falls are beautiful, and the birdlife was everywhere. Really a worthwhile walk.
Rainforest Circuit Ravensbourne (Darling Downs South West)
7 Sep, 2016
Easy
1.7km return
40 mins
This is a really beautiful bit of rainforest and a good walk. We did the rainforest circuit and then the palm circuit, both were lovely but the rainforest circuit had more atmosphere and some really great old giant trees. The Rainforest has some stairs but is definitely easier than the Palm circuit.
Crows Nest Falls Circuit (Crows Nest National Park)
6 Sep, 2016
Medium
4.5km return
2 hrs
We were here shortly after a controlled burn so it wasn't at it's best but it still had it's charms. The rock pools and gorges were very scenic, the cascades and waterfall were small but flowing and there were still plenty of birds around. There are a LOT of stairs on this walk, especially if you continue on to the lookout at the end, so it definitely earns it's Medium rating in my eyes. The wind through the valley is very strong and cold at times so be prepared for extra windchill - and probably a hat that can be secured would be a plus.
Pine Hill (South East Queensland)
5 Sep, 2016
Easy
7km return
2 hrs
We walked the blue trail and then came back by the black. Saw some great birds and kangaroos and there were lots of wildflowers everywhere which was lovely. The breeze was very nice on the blue trail but on the black trail it got really very hot. Honestly the black trail was somewhat lacking in scenery and had almost 2 solid kilometers of slight upward gradient which I personally find very wearing - I'd rather do a steeper gradient interspaced with flat or downhill areas. If we did it again we'd probably do the blue but then come back via the white and red trails, the blue section had a lot going for it but the black was like just walking along a road in dry backcountry.
Mary Cairncross Reserve (Sunshine Coast)

The bird variety and bold pademelons make this area truly fabulous.
Kondalilla Falls Circuit (Kondalilla National Park)

I've done this a few times, the upper track is breezy and the full loop is fun on the downhill but has a LOT of stairs coming back up.
Mapleton Falls & Wompoo Circuit (Mapleton National Park)
Mar, 2015
Easy
1.8km return
1 hr
Quick and easy, lots of nice birdsong. It is however the only place in my whole life I've ever picked up a leech, so be extra vigilant if it's just rained.
Hells Gates (Sunshine Coast)
2013
Easy

Done this walk at least a dozen times, it's a nice brisk stroll without much challenge. It's extremely scenic, ocean views the whole way, with lots of fun detours for beaches and rock pools. There are areas where the path is extremely narrow and it can get busy, so there may be some awkward shoulder-rubbing at the narrowest points when people are coming back the other way or you're overtaking. If you don't like a lot of other people around this isn't the walk for you, if you love looking at the ocean then it is.
