Purlingbrook falls Springbrook (Queensland)

Pleasant reasonably easy walk if completed in the recommended clockwise direction. Currently the entry & car park from Forestry Rd is closed (revamp of the area possibly) however entry from Carricks Rd offers parking & is easy to find.
The circuit plus the extra to Warringa Pool is around 8 klms at an easy stroll taking a little over 2 hours.
Goannas, wallabies & large skinks plus an array of birds were seen along the way.

Nice walk on a clear path through some lovely forest. The scrabble up the chain at the end has foot grooves so not too bad but a pair of gloves is handy coming down.
The 5.5 hours is a good estimate for someone of age with reasonable fitness. Younger & more fit should finish quicker.
Spectacular views from the Border Ranges to the ocean.

Great walk, pity about smoke haze today . Need a reasonable level of fitness & some agility to scale through the few rock crevices.
A 60 & 67 year old, in company of adult son achieved it in 4.5 hours taking our time. Busy at the weekends, fewer people week days.

Stunning views from the summit & the walk is full of birds, including the lovely sounds of the bell birds. Easy well defined track with a few sections of steps but nothing too difficult. Saw 1 snake that moved too quickly into the undergrowth for positive ID but think it was a rough scale. The stinging nettle is mostly off the path but is certainly there in large patches. Favourite walk of southeast qld so far.
