Buderim Forest Park

We went there to photograph the falls. It's amazing how many people are there even on a Wednesday. It must be so crowded on the weekend. It is a great spot though.

Woody Point to Scarborough

This stretch of beach is a regular walk for us. We have walked the complete path in the past, making it a circuit by starting at Scarborough Beach, continuing the the Ted Smout Bridge and then walking across the peninsular to Newport Waterways before walking back to Scarborough. Today however we started at Sutton's Beach, walked across the Ted Smout Bridge and then along the beach at Brighton and Sandgate until we reached the Shorncliffe Pier. Then we walked back again. It was about 31km in total. It was a hot day made more bearable by the breeze coming off the water. It's a good walk because there are plenty of cafes along the way to pick up a drink and some food. There are also water bubblers - luxuries we don't always have in the aussie bush.

Mahogany Trail

It was way too hot for doing this walk today. We were so grateful for the cafe at the Summit to pick up an ice block and cold drink. We took the Summit Trail on the way back.

Mt. Coot-tha Summit Track

I found it hard to believe that there might be water bubblers along this track, but there they were. Fantastic! The bottom section is quite a bit like a walk through a park. Very nice I might add. However, further along it is more like a bush walk with a good path. It was a hot day, and so maybe not as many people as on other weekends, but we did still see a few.

Aboriginal Artwork Track

Not a bad walk, though there really wasn't much artwork to see. There are a few interpretive signs, but they are quite small and easy to miss. The creek wasn't running, but still pretty enough.

MacDonald Rainforest

We came here to do an easy walk and escape some of the heat. It was a little cooler than where we had come from and not too busy. I think everyone was doing the walks with creeks or falls. We only saw one other family. The picaneen forest is really nice.

Helmholtsia Loop

This was a really picturesque walk. We would have loved to continue following the Brindle Creek Walk, but ran out of time.

Red Cedar Loop

This is a nice walk, though we enjoyed the Helmholtsia Walk more.

Pinnacle walk and lookout

We set off for this walk in the car from the Forest Tops Camping Area with a nice clear sky, did tow short walks along the way and had breakfast. Before we knew it, the clouds were rolling in, and we finished the drive in the cloud, needless to say, we didn't get much of a view. However, from the sign on the lookout it seems that this would be a fantastic view on a clear day. Hopefully we'll come by this way again some time.

Border Loop Walk

We were so busy looking at the strangler fig we didn't raven realise that the track had divided until it brough us back again to the same place. There are a lot of name plates on the trees and even some vines.
