Lake Manchester loop (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)

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.

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.

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

Short walk, some serious scrambling/rocky ground, so good shoes are a must. Great views from the top.

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.
