Nice and easy to pass the time
Warrie Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

One of the best walks so far! This is a must. Beautiful rainforests, walking behind waterfalls and amazing views out towards Gold Coast. Would definitely recommend! Plan after some rainfall to see the waterfalls at their best. Some bits are a little overgrown but luckily we didn't encounter any leeches. Plenty of skinks and birds. HUGE spider as well!

Completed in conjunction with the Warrie circuit. Do not be deterred by the length of the Warrie circuit. It really isn't that difficult and the walk is amazing.

Did this walk accidentally. Took a wrong turning which brought me back to where I started haha. Was pleasant enough with information on the surrounding wildlife
Daves Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)

Awesome walk through diverse rainforest with some amazing views. Definitely do the quick scramble up surprise rock, you will not be disappointed! Some parts of the track currently have trees which have fallen covering the path, but they're easy to get around. Yes... there are leeches amongst plenty other wildlife.
Purling Brook Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

Definitely check out Warringa Pool if you want to swim. There is no swimming under the waterfall itself (though disrespectful people might) so the extra walk to the pool is worth it. It is safe to jump in the middle of it too! Plenty of wildlife and the views are amazing

Great climb. Went to see the sunrise. Quite strenuous but still very enjoyable. Be careful with your torchlight at night so to not disturb the glowworms that live all the up the mountain! Was way too cloudy at the top so will have to go again when its clearer.

Amazing natural beauty. Definitely worth seeing. At night you can see the glow worms in the cave itself but please no torch lights or photos. You will disturb the bats and the glow worms that live there. Easily done on your way to or from another walk in the area

Wouldn't class this as very hard but certainly isn't for the faint hearted! The first bit is hardest but the views are very much worth it. Spent way too long at the summit and ended up climbing down in the dark. Bring insect repellent!

Wouldn't class this as a very difficult but it certainly isn't for the faint hearted! The beginning is the hardest part. My partner did it barefoot! Bring water, insect repellent and definitely a camera. The views are amazing. Do not climb if wet!

Did this walk before I signed up on this website. Was on our way to Gloucester Falls circuit but it had closed unfortunately so parked up at the camping area further down. Found a notice board... Seemed a short easy walk on the vandalised map that was provided therefore failed to notice the inclines! Still very enjoyable. Saw many kookaburra along the way.
