Thorsborne Trail, Hinchinbrook Island (Queensland)
4 Sep, 2018
Very Hard
32km one-way
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.

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 (Queensland)

Hard

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.
Mt Cooroora (Sunshine Coast)

Took my 60 year old parents on this hike, they haven't hiked in a long time but enjoyed it (and found it quite hard). The scramble wasn't too bad and made the uphill part not as strenuous. A great hike.

A great hike. Lots of new signage on the trail. More easy/medium. Really good cafe across from the carpark where the hike starts/ends.
Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk (Queensland)
1 Apr, 2018
Hard
58km
4 days
Started at the Mapleton Day Use area and did the circuit staying at Thilba Tbalba campsite for the night. Didn't want the hassle of a car shuffle but wanted to hike an overnighter. Track was well-defined, lots of water spots and the campsite was great. Loads of leaches, and we saw a snake. A nice walk.
Lake Manchester loop (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)

HOT! Really hot. Take plenty of water. We ran out of water but thankfully the stream near the hikers camp was running so we just got a couple of extra litres and treated it. A decent training hike but not sure I'd do it again.
Toolona Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)

Beautiful walk. Thought the grading of the walk was probably more Medium than Hard.
