Coomera Circuit (Binna Burra)
20 May, 2018
Medium
18km
8 hrs
Set out with my walking friend at 9am. Walked along the Border track until we found the Mt Hobwee Circuit. We kept a good pace and reached the summit at noon. Every time we wanted to stop for a sip of water and then carried on about 20-30 meters ahead there was a way better spot. We had lots of laughs about this along the way. We had a nice break and look at the view at the summit while having a snack and a sip of water. We decided to go back down to the round rock & view to have lunch. After lunch headed back down the switchbacks and on the second half of the circuit. Ran into some very overgrown, but still recognisable trail until we got to the Coomera Circuit. We looked at the sign, and then the time 3pm and decided to go back via this way to finish off our hike. The fauna started changing almost immediately and the air got a bit more damp, we crossed over the water many times and saw many beautiful waterfalls along the way. The view from the Coomera Lookout was absolutely amazing. But, by this time it was 3:30 - I started to think we may not make it back to the car before dark. We continued on our walk and made it back to the main track with 2.1 miles to go. The sun was down and it was starting to get dark, but we picked up the pace a little and made it back to the car. All in all, we walked 8.5 hours and a total of 25 km. I definitely remember this walk, such a good day out.

Such a beautiful walk through rainforest, and then it opens up with some rugged rock faces. The change in the scenery is immediate which I always find amazing. We walked this at a good steady pace and stopped for lunch & a rest at one of the views, it took us 3 1/2 hours to complete. What a stunningly beautiful day for a walk.
Mt Warning Summit trail (Mt Warning National Park)

Decided to do this walk on Easter, not such a great idea. We had to park 500m away from the start of the walk as there were so many cars and people it was impossible to get any closer.
There were so many people on the trail you never had a quiet moment to yourself to enjoy the outdoors.
Other than the people the walk as always is a good one, moderate until you get to the last 400m where you "rock climb" and use the chain to assist you on the way up and down. Once at the top there is a big grassy area to have picnics and then view the 360 degree view. Always gorgeous and worth the walk.

Was a very neat walk underneath the "caves" which to me were more of an overhang. Was lovely to walk through the rainforest as always. Saw some wildlife including some Pademelons. Nice and easy for the family.

Was a nice little walk if you wanted to cool off from the heat, but ends a bit unexpectedly ends at a pile of rocks. So, basically a walk through the rainforest.
