Yul-yan-man Track (Glass House Mountains)
2 Jun, 2020
Hard
8km return
4 hrs
We really enjoy this track. This is our second time. It's challenging in places and both times we've managed to lose the track. We've ended up in the same place both times, simply because you can't go any further. We don't think we're the only ones to do it, but the scramble down the hill to where you can see a pink ribbon on a tree is tricky. It's amazing how many people are doing this track now. It's not as busy as the mountain, but definitely more people than you would expect and many more than last time.

Mount Beerburrum (Glass House Mountains)

Easy

The new additional km at the beginning of the walk is a great warmup before hitting the actual mountain. If anyone tells you this is an easy mountain to climb forget it. It's way tougher than Mt Ngungun because it's so steep.
Kombartcho Sanctuary (Queensland)

Easy

It was very nostalgic visiting the site where bunya park wildlife sanctuary once was. There are tracks everywhere and it was difficult to work out which was the suggested route. Never the less it’s an ok place to visit.
Port Campbell Discovery Walk (Victoria)
9 Jan, 2020
Easy
4.4km return
90 mins
This walk isn’t as spectacular as the other walks in the area but it does give nice views over Oirt Campbell. Note: The flies are shocking down here.
The Arch (Victoria)

Very Easy

29 mins
This is a really interesting formation with two lookouts.
Great Ocean Walk (Victoria)
7 Jan, 2020
Hard
100km one-way
8 days
We’ve just completed this walk. We completed it over 5 days, though we didn’t do these days back to back. We took days off for a rest. We chose to use the local taxi company Timboon Taxis to pick us up each morning from the point where we wanted to finish our walk and drop us off at the start point. Then we just needed to walk back to where our car was parked. It worked really well. We also didn’t do the walk in order because if the tide times. We wanted to make it as sure as possible that we wouldn’t have problems with streams being too high to pass or beaches being covered in water. The walk was quite strenuous in parts. There is a really big hill after Johanna which was hard work. Also the sandy beaches here are quite soft and hard to walk on. Johanna Beach needs to be crossed and it is quite a long walk. Really exhausting. The other thing to note is that there are heaps of flies. We’ve been told that you can get a fly repellant. We didn’t have any but it would be a really good idea. They really spoil parts of the walk.

Never the less this is a remarkable walk with amazing views over the coastline. Many of the inland parts are very nice as well with quite diverse landscapes.
The Twelve Apostles (Victoria)
7 Jan, 2020
Very Easy
1km return
30 mins
We visited the Twelve Apostles many years ago but it was nothing like this. The lookout is huge and the crowds are too. This really is one of Australia’s iconic sites and a great short walk.
Triplet Falls (Tasmania)

Medium
2km return
1 hr
Great walk. The loop is closed at the moment but you can still get to the falls. The first lookout is the best but there are two others.
Loch Ard Gorge (Victoria)

Easy

Absolutely spectacular. I just don’t have the words.
