South Kobble bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park)
25 Apr, 2021
Very Hard
6 hrs
attempted this many times. and been studying this route for years. I did not find the campsite. I half expected it to be close by the creek. according to my GPS, I was at the correct location However the camp seemed to be direct atop a tall ridgeline south side of the creek. I was way too exhausted to bother climbing that ridge at the end of what was a tough day, for me. If you watch my video you may be able to tell where I should've looked.
cheers Gizmo's Adventures.

Did this walk again for 2nd week in a row. we had planned to abseil the 50 metre section from the summit. but torrential rain halted our plans we tried the following weekend and had near perfect conditions.
was truly awesome to get that viewpoint suspended from the cliffs.
this is a truly awesome peak and highly underrated.
will post a video of our experience on my (gizmo's adventures
utube channel soon )

Aquila Loop (D'Aguilar National Park)
9 Feb, 2018
2 days
This time on My Adventures i head off to England Creek remote bush camp.
All up its about a 27 km round trip.
mostly downhill going in.Which means all up hill out.took me 4.5 hours to walk out with a heavy pack.
Not too difficult,just long.
Middle Kobble bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park)
26 Jan, 2018
5 hrs
The walk in and out has some challenges and is quite steep in places.
I chose to do the full circuit loop so as not to retrace my steps.
For me personally i think i chose best as although the climb up north is arduous, it was well worth it as i was rewarded with some beautiful scenery. I was also unaware of the water tanks atop the ridge which may help for future explorations.
Note: The walk out took me exactly 3 hours to complete.
Thoroughly beautiful place. I loved it very much.
cheers Gizmo......
once again its on my utube channel

Piper Comanche Plane Wreck bush-walk in the D-Aguilar national park
Queensland Australia January 2018
I went in search of the Piper Comanche Plane Wreck .which crashed in 1977 sadly killing its pilot Paul Pavletich.
I followed a well marked ,though very overgrown trail following pink ribbons all the way.
The start of the trail is hard to pick as its very overgrown .less than 100 meters from the gate. if you lose site of gate you've gone too far.
This trip is interesting and worthwhile ;)
I've posted it on my u tube channel

Box Forest (Lamington National Park)
1 Oct, 2017
5 hrs
I chose today to do the Box Forest Circuit !
To get to these trails you need to to enter from the valley west of Tamborine Mountain through the town of Canungra. Via Lamington National Park rd.Head towards O'Reillys Rainforest Retreat...
I must WARN though ! .The last part of this road towards the climb to the mountain top is horrendous. The road is in some serious need of repair.And could be quite scary for the faint hearted !!!
I was really early and saw lots and lots of wallabies .Be careful as they were all over the road and on every bend.
As well as big groups of bush turkeys.( i have never seen lots of them all together before )? they weren't eager to get out of my way either.
Around O'Reillys Rainforest Retreat there are plenty of King parrots,
the odd Regent bower bird and brush turkeys galore.
On the trail i saw 3 Pademelons , A very big skink called a Land mullet, Yellow throated scrub wrens etc etc. I am usually not quick enough to catch them on film.
You can see this awesome trail on Gizmos Adventures .
