Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
9 Oct, 2018
Very Hard
7km return
4 hrs
Beautiful mountain.. The hike is hard and its a climb from the get go. The razor back on top can be a bit challenging and it will take about an hour to get across even though the distance is not too much. Only one section involves scrambling and that towards the top i believe its called the chimney. Views from top are breathtaking. If doing in summer carry water, hats sunscreen etc as it is al exposed on top and no shade at all. Do not do if raining or has rained as the razorback section will be very slippery

Did this one Impromptu..did not regret it..its tough on the knees but well worth the effort..quite step but metal steps have been placed there and chains are there to help you up and down..it is quite exposed towards the tops but no cliff edges ..views are amazing

Lovely easy and beautiful hike.. recommend for beginners and people who want to take kids ( although under strict supervision as there a few exposed sections up top..nothing to dangerous though) heaps of steps as well and varied plant and bird life.. Went on a rainy day so there were no views at all but on a clear day the views would be amazing...

Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney Summit)
26 May, 2018
Very Hard
13km return

Lovely hike.. Straightforward walk along the firetrail to begin with and then a bit of a climb which is what you expect from any hike, this goes on for about an hour and a half to two hours with some good views.. then starts the fun.. you have to cross over a razorback which is a bit exposed so you will have to have a good head for heights.. not difficult though. After that the proper climb/scramble starts with a lot of it being exposed you will have to hang out to roots and trees and pull yourself up. Lots of arrow markers in place so you shouldn't get lost using this route. Amazing views of the valley and Mount Earnest and Mount Lindesay all the way to the summit. The descent via peasants ridge is a lot easier the first bit involves a lot of sliding down the side of the peak but its not too steep so is ok. Lovely views of the West peak and the other smaller peaks of this amazing mountain. All up took us around 9 hours with around a half hour break on top. Great feeling once you have conquered this mountain. Good luck and have fun!!
Box Forest (Lamington National Park)

Lovely walk, best to do it after some rains so you get the best out of the waterfalls. Best to do it anti clockwise so you save the best waterfalls for the end. Either ways it is a beautiful walk and can be done with kids. Elabana falls are beautiful but my favorite was the box log falls the sheer force of it and the cliffs surrounding it give it that magical feel. All in all definitely recommend doing this one if you love chasing waterfalls. A bit of rock hopping to do to get across a few falls bit nothing too dangerous
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)

Hard

Beautiful views from the top...Take lots of water and you should be fine. You can visit both of the peaks we went to the one on the right and then rock hopped across the saddle to the one on the left which is the main peak offering one of the most spectacular views i have seen Barney, Ernest, Lindesay you can see them all.. Easy to get lost on this mountain we did and ended up descending to further down the gorge and thats when it gets dangerous as heaps of loose rocks and stones and a few snakes.. We then had to climb back up the near vertical section to get to the spot where you turn off and descend the normal way.. heaps of people up and down.. Would recommend this one to any one who loves a tough climb with amazing views.. reasonable level of fitness required...
