Purling Brook Falls Circuit and Warringa Pool (Springbrook National Park)
25 Feb, 2017
Medium
4km return
2 hrs
Finally got around to doing this walk and glad I did!
I would classify this as a medium for walk for someone who is of average build and fitness, mainly due to the length of it all, having said that there was no obstacles or hard points.
DO attempt this walk in a clockwise direction, if not you will be facing about 400 stairs on your climb back up.

Once you get to the bottom, take the extra 2km walk (approx 15 mins) to the warringa water hole, there is normally less people there too.

I mapped this whole walk from the car park to the warringa water hole and back up to the car park with a quick 500m return walk to some settlers village that didn't exist.

Here is some facts I collected about the walk;
Distance: 9.3km
Time: 1.46
Steps: 13,000
Floors: 96
Max. Elevation: 6.20
Min. Elevation: 4.16
Curtis Falls (Tamborine National Park)
5 Feb, 2017
Easy
1.1km return
30 mins
Attempted to go to Cedar Creek Falls, however it was greatly over crowded. Ended up visiting Curtis falls instead.

Track is well maintained and short, took us 5-10 minutes to get down walking at a medium to slow pace. Track was VERY busy on this day, I would have walked past at least 200 people in this short distance. even cueing up to walk down some stairs behind slower people.

Good place to visit if you're up the mountain, Good for the kids too!
Gins Lips Swimming Hole (Queensland)

Great place to visit, Track is pretty well maintained.
the last section you need to head down a good section of stairs.
Very beautiful spot, not too many people there the day I visited,
The path back up is quite hard getting back of the steps.
Would not recommend to anyone with young kids. There is a bench half way back up for you to stop and catch your breath.
