Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)

Great moderate walk. Slow climb to the top so its not too steap. Great views from the top looking towards Moogerah. The gymea lilies were starting to flower, would look amazing in spring in full bloom. Best to arrive early. We began walk at 7.30am and only saw 3 other couples on the way. When we arrived back at the carpark it was full and people were having trouble finding parking spaces. If you walk quietly and not yahoo and carry on you may be lucky to encounter a lyerbird like we did. Were able to view quite closely while she was scratching for food. We also heard multiple lyerbird calls throughout the rainforest section. Some cool rock formations to be seen.

Easy circut walk to scenic waterfall. We completed in an anti clockwise direction finishing with the stairs. Not as many stairs as expected although I expect they are challenging for some. Take a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park nearby.

Walked part of this track following the Quarry Rd trail from Forde Rd in Neville Lawrie Reserve out to the old quarry. Nice walk. Lots of grass trees and varied birdlife. Busy park shared with mountain bikers so keep an eye out. Dog friendly too, watch for land mines!

Beautiful walk to an amazing waterfall and pools via some great rock formations. We completed the walk quite early on a public holiday. Arriving at about 6.30am I was not expecting to see many people. It was actually quite busy with tourists taking selfies in the waterfal area. Walked quite fast and was able to complete in about 1.25hrs.

Pleasent short walk with entry of the end of Flesser Rd. Was surprised to see a few other cars of walkers. Trail difficult to see as it runs off a wide fire trail. Was disapointed to see lots of lantana. There were areas with a large amount of birdlife. Looked to also be some terrestrial orchids although they were not in flower.
Wickham Peak - Calytrix Circuit (Queensland)

Relatively easy walk with a couple of hills. Beautiful flora with many interesting areas. I walked the Wickham Peak trail first and encountered a few people walking their dogs. Went on to Grass Tree Lookout which was very beautiful and followed a narrow trail further on to a secluded area that was alive with birdlife. Continued on the Caltryx Circuit and managed to finish the entire walk in 1.5 hrs walking briskly. I imagine e it would have been spectacular a few weeks earlier when the masses of acacia was in bloom. A great short walk that was better than I expected.
Witches Falls (Tamborine National Park)

Walked Witches Falls Circuit and adjoining Witches Chase. Have not walked this track since i was a child. I personally think this is one of the most beautiful and interesting walks on the mountain. Walked very early and passed no-one. Rugged terrain and may be challenging for the beginner. Falls were only weak but still amazing to look at the cliffs below. Lots of interesting birdlife...especially near the seasonal lagoon.
