Tallebudgera Creek Circuit (Queensland)
13 Apr, 2019
Easy
8km return

We had trouble finding the start of the walk by you actually do walk under the sign for David Fley’s Wildlife Park. The walking track then veres off to the right. There is a map before the sign which shows where the path actually goes. I wish we’d paid more attention because we got confused and ended up turning back before finishing. The track goes for about 1.5km and then you come to a street. There armed steps directly across the road that go down to another street. That’s where it seems to end. The map shows that you then follow the streets, turning left and then immediately to to the right and then right again to go back to Tallebudgera Creek. The track probably resumes there though we didn’t get there. Have a good look at the map before you start. Sorry I did’t photograph it.

We just did it once while there was a break in the rain. We counted 147 steps. Great workout. Once was enough for me.
Brian Burke Reserve / House Mountain (Samford) (Queensland)

It is a strenuous walk in the way up though there are flat sections so it’s not too bad. Parts of the path are a bit stoned so care is needed. The only view really was through the trees though if you look back not too far from the top you get a bit of a view from there though it’s not over the Samford Valley.
Moreton Terrace Park (Queensland)

We took the track at low tide and followed it most of the way to the Caboolture River. There are a couple of places where the track divides and we had to decide which way to go. We took the wrong track once and ended up at a dead end but you can’t really get lost. Once we found our way to the end of the track we went the rest of the way to the river on the beach. It’s a bit of a different walk through mangroves in a sandy path. Quite nice in places but it was also a bit smelly in places.
Mt Ngungun (Glass House Mountains)

This walk was busy once again even though there’s a bit of rain around. The path wasn’t too slippery but you do need to take care on the rock stairs.
Mt Nebo - Honey Track (Queensland)

It's pretty hilly, but the track is good. We thought the walk back was harder than the walk there with the hills. The start of the Honey Track where it is overgrown looked a bit like the weeds have been poisoned, so maybe the rangers are trying to fix it. All of the grass and some of the plants at the edge of the track were going yellow. We saw a few goannas and heard plenty more.
Lagoon Creek Walk (Queensland)

Very Easy

Ok walk. There’s only a short part where you really feel like you’re walking near the creek. That’s about half way along just free the second gate. Mostly the walk is through trees with lomandra lining the path.
Kureelpa Falls (Mapleton National Park)

Really nice walk. There is a large area to explore at the falls so it’s quite fun. The only place we became confused was where we crossed o er the stream. We headed straight up the bank on what looked like a path but it disappeared into nothing. After retracing. Our steps back to the stream we found the correct path further to the left from where we crossed. It was super easy from there.

Absolutely loved this track. The landscape is beautiful and quite different to Australia.
