Started at 5am to catch the blood moon and the sunrise from the summit. Walk was longer than advertised at just under 14km round trip on my GPS. Easy to follow track. Fantastic views, well worth the early morning.

Mount Edwards (Moogerah Peaks National Park)

This walk is a never ending incline with lots of rocky steps. The first km to the first lookout was pleasant and then it's quite rocky until you get near the top when it starts to flatten out. Hard on your knees on the way down. Stunning view from the top. Great winter walk.
Ironbark Track (Queensland)

Medium
6km return

This walk is a fire trail so it's very easy to follow. Great instructions on how to get to the start of the track. It splits the national park and residential area so there are houses on one side as you walk the track. A couple of hills gets the heart pumping but overall pretty dull and boring track. No lookout at the end, just connects to another road. A few kangaroos and lots of birds to see if you have little ones but would not recommend when White Rock is so close and 100x better.
Trachyte Circuit (Mt Tibrogargan) (Glass House Mountains)

We did this track and the extra bit around Tibro. Nice walk and nice views. Easy to follow and easy walk.

Piper Comanche Wreck (Queensland)

Nice walk through the rain forest but not an 'easy' walk as there are many fallen trees across parts of the path you have to scramble over or go under. Descent to the plane wreck is very steep and was slippery in parts, coming back up was easier than going down. Navigation was fairly straightforward by following an overgrown but noticeable path and the pink ribbons, however, we downloaded the gpx track and cross navigated with that to ensure we were on track. I clocked this walk as just over 9kms return from the car park on gps - the stated 7.5km must be from a turnoff on the track. Take salt if you are worried about leeches, we saw plenty of them - mostly at the lower altitude around the plane wreck itself. Took us about 3hrs to complete this walk.
