Mount Beerwah Summit (Glass House Mountains National Park)
11 Jul, 2018
Very Hard
2.9km return
3 hrs
I attempted this climb yesterday (note; it feels more like a climb than scramble) however was not successful in reaching the summit. The reviews provided by others (i.e. do not attempt in wet, very steep, smooth rock face) are accurate. In my opinion, it is not suitable for the inexperienced.
Conway Circuit (formerly Whitsunday Great Walk) (Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday)

Only did honeyeater lookout track but couldn't find the walk on here to tick! Well. I came across a backpacker who was a bit frustrated by the length of this track. Although it is about 3.6km round circuit, it certainly feels longer. There are several inclines and the track winds down and around regularly. You feel like you're going up and down in vain.
Nevertheless the views are amazing and second to none. I saw one snake on the track but there'd be plenty more around haha. Also quite a few goannas and some gorgeous butterflies!
Overall I'd recommend this track but be prepared for the humidity. A snake bandage be a good idea too.

I would recommend being suitably prepared for this one and knowing your limits.
As others have stated, there is a section in the track where you are inclined to go left and continue upwards (we did) but it leads to a dead end with a vertical uphill climb. Don't attempt the uphill climb. We did thinking this was the route and it was dangerous to get back down when we realised it was the wrong way. Make sure, in the junction, you go right even though the track winds downward and around the base of the mountain (as others have said it feels counter-intuitive to do that). The scramble seemed REALLY easy after the initial climb we attempted, though, and I had a good amount of adrenaline to take me up.
Overall it was a nice walk, took us about 5 hours to get up and down (including getting lost) and I'd recommend it to those who are physically fit and have done at least some scrambling or uphill stuff before. Bring plenty of water (minimum 3L)!

Good walk/climb but do it early as it's very hot toward the middle of the day! Some scrambling/climbing involved. Probably the most slippery I have done (granite rock) but not particularly dangerous in the slippery spots. Take someone with you and some water. I think it would be easy to get lost on this one. Also went with Moura the local guide :)

Super fun walk. Appreciated the stairs and the chain (chain especially so coming down!)
I would recommend it for people with a moderate + level of fitness.
