Toolona Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)

Having been a dry winter the track was very easy to walk with no sign of leeches, though we did have 80% DEET repellant on. The falls were all flowing which made for a pleasant hike, especially with the cool temperature of early spring. A quick pace and 20 minutes for lunch saw the hike done in 4.5 hours. Highly recommended.
Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney Summit)

The final ascent to East Peak is quite challenging with steep rock climbs. Got off track a couple of times, even with the track notes, but with some considered thought and compass was able to pick it up again. It was a perfect late winter day, full sunshine and no wind or dampness. I wouldn't consider doing the full climb in hotter conditions. Started at 7:30 a.m. with a return to the carpark at 4:30 p.m. after many stops for water/food/photos, not to mention giving aching legs and feet a rest. Being fully prepared is a must.
