Yul-yan-man Track (Glass House Mountains)

That was a great walk and we’re surprised it’s not better known because it’s really good though quite challenging. There’s lots of variety too. We work the alternative route back rather than back-tracking and it took three and a half hours. Along the way we met the man who posted in April about falling over the side. We saw him at the end of the track where it meets the trachyte track and can confirm that he has conquered the walk. He’s done well!
Ernest Junction Tunnel (Queensland)

We had an interesting walk here. Once you get down a little there are dirt bike tracks everywhere so we got a little confused. We decided to take the most obvious paths by going straight ahead and heading down hill. We made it to a place where we had to choose between going left or right. We asked a bike rider where the tunnel was and he told us we were heading on the right direction. As long as we kept going that way we’d walk into it. When we got there it was about 1.5km. However right near the tunnel is a track that went straight up to to road - 300m. The tunnel is great and definitely worth a look. At the other end there are information boards on the railway line.
Federation Walk (Queensland)

A hot walk on a really cold day. The ground is loose and sandy in places, particularly near the sand pumping station. You wouldn’t get a wheel chair through there. We took a walk into the Jetty at the sand pumping pipeline. There’s a cost of $2.20 for that. We also picked up a coffee at the kiosk near the road and walked out on the rock wall at the mouth of the river before walking back.
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Challenging walk but lots of fun. The part we found hardest was the loose dusty ground on the way down. It was too easy to slip so we had to take it quite slow. It took us four and a half hours but younger people should be able to do it much quicker.
Mt Tunbubudla East (Glass House Mountains)

Really need nice walk at the bottom. The climb up and down was really challenging. It’s pretty much straight up apart from a section in the middle where you skirt around the side of the mountain. The scree was interesting on the way down. There was no bush bashing though. Parts of the track are a little overgrown towards the top but it wasn’t too tricky. There are pink ribbons all the way up but we didn’t see too many on the way up, probably because we were watching our feet rather than the trees. They were more obvious coming down. We definitely wouldn’t do it after rain. It would be terrible.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

Fantastic walk. Totally loved it and would highly recommend. It has a slight incline most of the way until you get close to the top where there are steps. We saw heaps of birds, particularly close to the top, and that was at midday.

There were an amazing number of cormorants on the water today. We’ve never seen so many.
Brisbane River Walk (Queensland)

Easy

Part of the walk along the river through the gardens is cut off at the moment. There is a detour along the road making the walk a little longer.

It never ceases to amaze me how strenuous this short walk is. Great workout.

Late afternoon walk. We think we saw a shearwater diving for fish just off the beach today. We’ve never seen one here before.
