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.

I started on the Witches Chase before walking the falls circut and then finished again on the chase. Best walked early in the morning to appreciate the forests birdlife. A few stair sections and an awesome boulder section. You will need to pay attention and watch where your going as its narrow in sections and rocks are jagged. Take time to stop at the boulder section to look up the hillside to a giant strangker fig with many elkhorns and moss.

Nice easy track. Walked very early in the morning and passed only 1 other person. Falls not a big as I've seen previously there due to lack if rain. View at lookout was amazing. We could see Brisbane city in the distance. We saw lots of bird life, fungus, insects and even a koala. There is also a large lace monitor in the park at the start if the lookout who approaches quite close.
