Lake Manchester loop (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
14 Apr, 2018
Medium
17km
5 hrs
Harder than I remembered, especially in the rain.
Went clockwise to get the harder hills done first.
The first stream has a good set of stones to act as a bridge, but at the second (near the campground) they move a lot. I ended up hurting my knee and getting wet shoes - not a fun combo, so beware.
Barker Creek Circuit (Bunya Mountains)

Lovely walk with beautiful views. There's only one section that I'd actually class as uphill, but if you're wanting to do it the 'easy' way, go clockwise from the car park.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

Medium

3.5 hrs
Decided to tackle Mt Mitchell again after a few months off due to surgery and it was well worth it - the views are amazing.
The path has been trimmed back for most of the walk, but the rest desperately needs to be cleared as the weeks and scrub are growing over the path and make it hard to see. There is also a lot of leaf litter which make some areas quite slippery. Once you pass the 'cliff edges' sign, stinging nettle is taking over, so long sleeves/pants are a must. I went through in 3/4's and a tee, but paid the price with quite a few run ins.
Table Top Loop (Toowoomba)

Started early in the morning, few other walkers, but overall pretty quiet. Took 1hr 15min with a few breathers and to enjoy the views.
Table Top Loop (Toowoomba)

Short walk, some serious scrambling/rocky ground, so good shoes are a must. Great views from the top.
Lake Manchester loop (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
22 Aug, 2017
Medium

5 hrs
Did the loop clockwise, some hard/steep inclines and declines for the first third. The cabin is easy to spot and a great place to take a rest. Blue Gum campground is also lovely. Started the walk at 10am and took 4hrs. Was very warm for most of the walk with patchy shade.
Mount Edwards (Moogerah Peaks National Park)
13 Aug, 2017
Medium
6.5km return
3 hrs
Started at midday, not a good idea. Was very hot with little breeze and patchy shade.
Easy to follow track, fair amount of loose rocks, so good shoes are a must. It's a constant climb, so a moderate level of fitness is needed.
I recommend insect repellent; mosquito's, sandflies and god knows what else gave it a good go, even biting through my shirt once I'd lathered on some deet.
Shared the track with a monitor lizard for a while, which was amazing.
Took 1.5hrs up and 1hr down and if I'm honest, while it was a good walk, given how long it took, I'd rather do Mt Mitchell again.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

Medium

3.5 hrs
Fun walk, took 2.5hrs with a few decent breaks.
Didn't notice the pic with the warning about stinging nettles until I got home - they're still there. Not too many, but enough that both walkers had a run in with them.
Pine Hill (South East Queensland)
10 Aug, 2017
Easy
7km return
2 hrs
Black trail is just a road following the ridge back to the carpark. Easy way to finish the walk, but a little boring; some good views though from the top.
Goolman Lookout via Rocky Knoll (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
9 Aug, 2017
Medium
7.4km
2 hrs
Went up via Goolman, came down via Rocky Knoll. Couldn't see any signage saying which way to go, so followed below comment, which was very easy. If in doubt, at the T follow signs to THT (if memory serves). There's 2 at the intersection, then just some more arrows further along a very easy to follow path.
Gamlen Circuit (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Nice short walk, bit of an incline, but not challenging.
Rocky Knoll Lookout (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Not much of a lookout from the top, I had a better view from the bottom actually because there were gaps to see through the trees. Nice walk, decent amount of shade even in the afternoon.
Goolman Lookout (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Medium

Very steep for me (low level of fitness), but quick enough. Good views, bit hazy due to back burning, but still a nice little hike.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)

Beautiful walk, lots of shade and very cool under the canopy.
Bare Rock track and Morgan's Walk (Main Range National Park)

Great added extra to the Mt Cordeaux walk. You're already up the mountain, so it's worth popping over to have a look at the view.
Gold Creek Reservoir (South East Queensland)

Tried going clockwise and got lost, so will go back this weekend and try the other way.
Beautiful walk.
