Mt Castle Lookout (Main Range National Park)

Easy
960m return
30 mins
Very easy walk, beautiful rainforest around. Unfortunately foggy when we got the lookout, but still very atmospheric. A little slippery in places, but lovely surroundings.
Queen Mary Falls Circuit (Main Range National Park)

I had thought heading down to the valley floor and back up would be taxing. Actually a surprisingly easy walk. We headed clockwise to avoid climbing stairs on the way back. Beautiful spot to watch nature do it's thing.
Sylvesters Lookout (Main Range National Park)

Easy
940m return

Great little walk through some beautiful rainforest. Stayed at Gordon Country, so a short drive from there. 4WD necessary for some creek crossings to get to the walk. Beautiful lookout, can be a little muddy and slippery underfoot, but all in all a very easy pleasant walk with spectacular views at the top.
Granite Arch (Girraween National Park)

Very easy walk, gently uphill. If you only have an hour or so this is a beautiful option. Plenty of beautiful rock formations and creeks flowing.

Gentle walk, but rocks can be slippery at The Junction. Seemed to take a bit longer to get out there than expected. Beautiful after some rain, very peaceful. Some people were going swimming, a bit too nippy for my liking.
Mount Blaine (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Great hike. As others have said, golden orb spiders everywhere, but also heaps of beautiful wrens on the fire trails and whip birds as you ascend. Mount Catherine is a worthwhile side trip of about 15 minutes. From here is a great view to Blaine, got me pumped to keep going. I headed up the northface, very scrambly lots of leg work. Not many spots to stop and enjoy the view. Beautiful views of Flinders from the top. Check out the geocache on top. Headed down the southern face which I think is marginally easier, though I got a bit lost towards the very end, think a couple of new tags/markers are in order. Loved the hike, preferred this over Flinders.
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
1 Feb, 2020
Hard
6.5km return
3.5 hrs
This was harder than I anticipated. The first section is dry and a little dull, not much to see for the first 20 mins or so. Then the boulder climbing starts, this was my favourite section, but not a place you can get any speed up, I think that's what I found frustrating about the hike. Plenty of scrambling and beautiful views the higher you get. Ye with little legs, be warned. It took me alot longer than I'd thought, but I'm not particularly fit. Plenty of food and water is a MUST.
White Rock Ridge Hike (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)

I really enjoy this little hike. Unfortunately now being located right next to an estate ALOT of people use the tracks. Can we challenging to find a quiet moment to relax and take it all in.
Mount Edwards (Moogerah Peaks National Park)

It's all up hill, but I found it quite pleasant. Very rocky, but not slippery. A bit of clambering involved, but I found this a bit more exciting than just the walking. Beautiful view at the top.
Mt Greville (Moogerah Peaks National Park)

Hard
6km return

I went up and down SE Ridge. Great views from the rocky slab, not sure I'd worry too much about heading up further to the summit again, views are nearly as good, but still nice to have done that. Saw a glider (not sure which sort, too dark), wallabies and some wrens. Good challening walk.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)
1 Jan, 2019
Medium
6.8km return

Easy, well maintained track up to the summit. With option to continue onto Bare Rock and Morgans walk. This particular morning the cloud was initially down adding a misty atmosphere - very nice. So the summit was clouded over, but I continued onto Morgans walk - again misty. On the way back, the clouds suddenly parted, so back up to the summit, beautiful views and a great way to start the new year. Plenty of birdlife to see, if you're quiet. The walk up took about an hour. Back down I took my time.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

Started at 3.30am to get to the summit for sunrise. Beautiful sections of rainforest, plenty of bird life and rock wallabies along the way up. Some steep stairs along the top sections, sure footing is a must. Views were spectacular in every direction, great to get an overview of the area.

Cool winter day to start with, but soon warmed up to be really pleasant. Beautiful weather for birdwatching and taking time.

Did the walk after a few rainy days, even though there was a bit of fog, the views were still beautiful and nice to have the place to myself, great opportunity to spot some wildlife.

Now very well signposted. Just follow the main track right down until you see a signed post for the Ridge Hike. Great walk up along the ridge, had it practically to myself. Nice views out to the east, city can be seen in the distance. For those that are vertically challenged like myself, there are a few bits that require some jumping and scrambling, but great fun.

Very easy walking, but not a whole lot to see. I definitely have a preference for the ridge hike.
