Trachyte Circuit (Mt Tibrogargan) (Glass House Mountains National Park)
16 Jul, 2017
Medium
6km return
2.5 hrs
Worth the side track up to Jack Ferris lookout. When I walked through, quite a bit of the pine forest had been cut down. The track is well-graded and relatively easy to follow.
Baxter Falls - Southern Approach (Kondalilla National Park)

I started the walk at the other end from Suses Pocket Road. Note: there is no parking at this location and this road is designated as for residents only.

Track gets quite busy.

I love how this track changes, from walking across the top of a waterfall, to walking behind waterfalls, to walking under cliff ledges. Go early as it gets busy on the weekends.
Cathedral Rock (Cathedral Rock National Park)

Started from Native Dog campground and walked to Woolpack Rocks. I have a left knee injury and couldn't quite manage the final section of the trail, climbing up into the rocks. Regardless was a lovely walk and quiet.
Mount Coolum (Sunshine Coast)

Even at the crack of dawn on a Sunday morning, this track is busy. Though people were overwhelmingly courteous in moving to the side of the track to let others pass. It's exposed—so make sure you have sunscreen.

Mt Ngungun (Glass House Mountains National Park)

Easy
2.8km return

A very busy walk. I have bad knees and the track required constant attention so I didn't trip over. Overall, people were courteous in moving aside to let people pass.
Gwongoorool Rock Pools (Lamington National Park)

Medium

It's a steady, graded walk though what goes down, must go up. I have bad knees and managed this track fine using one hiking stick.
Westside Track (D'Aguilar National Park)
5 Feb, 2017
Easy
6km return
2.5 hrs
A quieter walk at Mt Glorious than Greene's Falls. I prefer the fire track road (Bryces Road) below this track though.
Thylogale Track (D'Aguilar National Park)

Easy

Nice relatively flat walk close to Brisbane.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)
19 Dec, 2016
Hard
10.2km
2.5 hrs
A graded walk through rainforest up to the summit of Mt Cordeaux. The traffic noise from Cunninghams Gap is almost a constant hum. I have bad knees and found this track manageable as it is mostly switchbacks.

As an aside, I ended up in hospital four days after the walk on an IV drip due to an infection from a tick bite, so I'd suggest using DEET insect repellant all over, not just in some places (note to self) ;)
Morelia Track (D'Aguilar National Park)
11 Dec, 2016
Medium
6km return

Nice walk close to Brisbane. I have bad knees and this track didn't pose any problems. Gentle gradient with few stairs.
Caves Track (Lamington National Park)
4 Dec, 2016
Medium
5.2km return
90 mins
A lovely walk. I parked up the hill and walked down the road to the trail head. I started very early, so there wasn't a lot of cars on the road.

NOTE: This track was extensively damaged by Ex-TC Debbie and as at 25/07/17, the Department of National Parks, Sports and Racing are stating: "Caves circuit. Note: A long term closure will apply to the Caves circuit due to a significant landslide."

I have bad knees and this short walk was fine. I added the Lower Creek Circuit to my walk.
