Mt Beerwah East Face (Glass House Mountains)
14 Apr, 2018
Very Hard
3km return
5 hrs
Decent scramble up the East face of Beerwah without the usual foot traffic of the Northern 'tourist' route. Finding the initial entrance from the carpark was the only real struggle (it's actually very close to the carpark). Once you see it, it is well-trodden and easy to navigate. When the bush part meets the rock and the scramble starts, there are multiple paint marks and pink ribbon to help you find your way. I'd say that it's even easier than the tourist route.

I'd personally recommend this route only for the ascent. I prefer to tourist route in terms of being technically challenging but this Eastern route is worth a go!
Mount Edwards (Moogerah Peaks National Park)
Nov, 2016
Medium
6.5km return
3 hrs
Simple walk. 1 hour up and about 40 minutes down. The views at the top were nice but I felt that the track was rather hidden from good views for most of the walk up (bar a section about half way where there was an exposed section of rock with a good view). A good walk for beginners with at least some level of fitness. Track was well trodden and easy to follow. I was expecting something a lot steeper and challenging given the QLD government Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing have given this walk a 'Class 5' rating. (The same rating as Mount Barney and Mount Maroon)... Personally, I prefer steep and scrambling types of hikes. Will be keen to give Mt Greville a go next time I'm out this way.
