Dove Lake Circuit (Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park)
21 Sep, 2017
Easy
5.7km return
2 hrs
One of my all time favourite little treks. Lucky enough to see plenty of snow around from a fall six days prior (late and uncharacteristic for this time of year...). Great track which is well maintained. It is an easy walk for those with moderate fitness and the views are just amazing! Too challenging a walk for my aged Parents just as an FYI.
Kureelpa Falls (Mapleton National Park)
20 Aug, 2017
Easy
2.5km return
1 hr
This is approx 10km circuit trek from the Mapleton National Park Day use area. Easy to follow track and pretty hike. Allow approx 2.5 - 3 hours for general hike, longer if planning on climbing down the rocks to the gorge as mentioned below.
Mt Allan from Charlie Moreland Camp Ground (Conondale National Park)
17 Jul, 2017
Hard
8.8km return
2 hrs
A very challenging walk with very steep ascension in many areas. We had to stop often given our average fitness levels, but well worth it! Took about three hours. Lots of wildlife and a terrific view of surrounds at the top.
Trachyte Circuit (Mt Tibrogargan) (Glass House Mountains)
30 Apr, 2017
Medium
6km return
2.5 hrs
Love this trek. Part of circuit closed for maintenance until 20/05/17 but detour provided to Jack Ferris lookout and loop back to Tibro circuit. If using Matthew Flinders car park, head up Evans road to find track markers. Pretty easy going trail with a few up hill areas and steps in some places.
Dularcha NP - Roses Circuit (Sunshine Coast)
23 Apr, 2017
Medium
8.1km return
2.5 hrs
Was looking for something different to my usual and came across the Rose Circuit. Took about 3 hours with some very steep hills just before the half way mark. Also some sections of trail with long grass (not a lot of track maintenance). Would agree with suggestions to take map as trail markers are few and far between (I did have wifi coverage the whole time but better safe than sorry). Historic rail tunnel is pretty cool and many beautiful butterflies, moths and birds, but not a track I would regularly walk as there isn't much besides bush viewing.
Mount Coolum (Sunshine Coast)

90 mins
Challenging for me with current lower level fitness (feel the leg burn!). Took 25-30 mins up, slightly faster going down. Can be quite slippery on the dusty rocks, some rock scrambling required to reach the top. More challenging the Mt Ngun Ngun in my opinion. Totally worth the trek, trail and view are both beautiful! Super busy the day I went so suggest going as early as possible.
Hells Gates (Sunshine Coast)
Mar, 2017
Easy
5.4km return
90 mins
Easy trek with beautiful views. Exposure to the sun for majority of the trek, so definitely take a hat! I wouldn't do this one on a hot day. Great access for wheelchairs/prams for a good portion of the trail. Trail becomes quite narrow after this with sheer cliff drops in some areas. Seriously amazing views.
Mt Ngungun (Glass House Mountains)

2.8km return
90 mins
Appropriately graded. Amazing views from the top. Pretty challenging but within capabilities as relatively inexperienced bushwalkers. Completed in approx 1hr 10mins including time for resting at the top.
Kondalilla Falls Circuit (Kondalilla National Park)

2 hrs
Amazing trek, beautiful rainforest. Challenging with all those steps and the uphill return to car park, but love this walk. Have had leeches every time we've been here so recommend taking salt.
Mary Cairncross Reserve (Sunshine Coast)

Lovely family friendly track. Beautiful rainforest with excellent visitor centre. An old favourite.
Outstanding views of the Glasshouse Mountains opposite the park too.
