Sublime Point Lookout (New South Wales)

Easy

Nice easy walk but not flat. You walk down to the lookout and then you walk back up. Most of the walk is sealed though before you reach stairs and then the bridge. Great views.
Wentworth Pass (New South Wales)

Totally awesome walk. This is the second time we’ve walked this track and live it. Last time we did it clockwise starting at Wentworth Falls car park. This time we started at the same car park but headed towards the conservation hut along the shortcut track and then down into the valley from there. We thought this was a better option because the track up towards the conservation hut is very long and gruelling. The track up from the bottom of Wentworth falls is steeper but involves steps and ladders. It doesn’t take nearly as long. This track does take in part of the National Pass, but this part is open. The National Pass is incredible and this section of it definitely won’t disappoint.
Three Sisters Walk (Blue Mountains National Park)

It’s a good little walk to do if your here just to say you’ve done it. The steps down are part of the giant staircase.
Valley of the Waters (New South Wales)

We’ve walked this track twice as part of the Wentworth Pass track - once each way. It’s a really tough walk back up because it seems to go forever. Seeing the waterfalls is so worth it though. Really awesome.
Thylogale Track (Jollys Lookout)

Nice easy walk. It’s pretty flat. On another note I have to say that it’s really dry in the area. We’ve been up there many times and I’ve never seen so many trees with dead leaves.

We hadn’t planned to do this walk today but the ghureela track is closed. It’s a really pretty walk but it’s pretty hilly. Gives a good workout. It is very well signed. We were confused at first though because we stopped at the wrong car park. We missed the first part that ran along beside the road and started at the wider trail which went straight ahead.
Caloundra Foreshore (Bulcock Beach to Moffat Beach) (Sunshine Coast)

Enjoyable walk. We started south of Bulcock Beach and walked to Moffat Beach and back. The first half of the walk was relatively busy and flat. The second half was quieter but hilly.
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.
