Purling Brook Falls Circuit and Warringa Pool (Springbrook National Park)

Stunning hike. Great to do it during the week when there were less people around. Had morning tea at the rockpool which was really nice. Track including the rockpool ended up being 8.1kms. Easy walking and carried a 7 month old on my back.
Twin Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)
20 Jun, 2020
Medium
4km
90 mins
Super busy hiking on the weekend and difficult to get a car park. Circuit should really be one way during Covid 19 to avoid closely passing so many people. Otherwise was a really nice walk, waterfalls were rushing.
Thylogale Track (Jollys Lookout)
18 Jun, 2020
Easy
8km return

An easy stroll, carried our 7 month old on my back. Agree with previous comments that it would be nice to do it in reverse (and take a picnic).
Mt Elimbah (The Saddleback) (Glass House Mountains)

Nice hike wearing our 6 month old on my back. The pink ribbon the other reviewers speak of appears to be gone and replaced by a handwritten note directing you to go right up the mountain. I don't suspect the note will last too long, so just remember to take the right at the first fork.
Morelia Track (Manorina National Park)

Thorsborne Trail, Hinchinbrook Island (North Queensland)
4 Sep, 2018
Very Hard
32km one-way
4 days
An incredibly beautiful hike. The track is well defined and not particularly difficult (medium to hard) but it is the creatures that make it scary (crocodiles, snakes!). We took 3 nights and 4 days, although an extra night in Zoe Bay would have been really nice because it's stunning. Drinking water was difficult to find in September, particularly on the first day of the trail, up to a 25 minute walk to find it, so recommended taking a large bladder or water bag so you don't have to make so many trips.
Mt Warning Summit Trail (Mt Warning National Park)

Hard

Birthday Hike!! Beautiful hike through the forest, with a short scramble at the end which wasn't difficult. Took us about 4.5 hours with a break at the top. Loads of people around. Had a great lunch and cake at a nearby Cafe afterwards.
Mt Allan from Charlie Moreland Camp Ground (Conondale National Park)
15 Jul, 2018
Hard
8.8km return
2 hrs
We set out to do this hike from Booloumba Creek but unfortunately the road was closed because of an unstable bridge (and apparently will be closed until at least October 2018). So we drove through the forest and started the hike from Charlie Moreland. Was quite steep for most of the walk and not particularly enjoyable, but the fire tower was great. Views were stunning and it was quite an interesting place. Took about an hour, 20 minutes to get up and an hour down. Hard rating due to steepness of hike.
Buhot Creek Circuit (Daisy Hill Conservation Park)

Easy

Combined this walk with the Spotted Gum Circuit to make a 13.6km walk. Was a nice day out, loads of mountain bikes around but they were all very considerate. An easy stroll. Didn't see any koalas though.
