Kosciuszko Summit (New South Wales)
6 May, 2018
Medium
13km
5 hrs
Chairlift up on Snow Gums. Traversed across to Eagles Nest approx 400 meters. From there the track is easily made out due to not too much snow on the ground. Steel grated walkway most of the way to the intersection from Charlotte Pass. From there a nice leisurely ascent to the summit.

Recommended if walking this time of year to take warm clothes and headwear. better to have it and not need it then not take it and wish you had.

Will be back to do the full hike and also some others in the region during summer.

Redcliffe - Scarborough Bike Way (Queensland)
9 Apr, 2018
Easy
10.4km return
2.12 hrs
Nice easy walk. Total time was 2hr 12mins. Not taxing on the body or legs. Lots of water points along the way as well. Great scenery both on land and out in Moreton Bay.

Did this with my dog and was a nice leisurely stroll along the foreshore.
Mt Warning Summit trail (Mt Warning National Park)
7 Apr, 2018
Hard
8.8km
5 hrs
To the summit in 1hr 48mins. Down in 1hr 36mins. Tree down across the track about 600-700 meters in but a path has been cleared through it so no big deal. Stairs are a bit of a bugger but necessary given the dampness underfoot the entire way.

Didn't have much to see unfortunately at the top as was extremely overcast. It didn't diminish the enjoyment in haveing completed this walk.

Highly recommended.
Mount Tibrogargan Summit (Glass House Mountains)
18 Mar, 2018
Very Hard
3km

Great climb and one that you certainly can feel good about yourself once you get to the top. Chicken Rock at about halfway up is the point you'll reach where you make the decision to keep going or turn back. It is basically a 90 degree vertical climb using hand/foot holds approximately 25 - 30 meters in height.

Loose rock can be an issue underfoot if you do not watch where you are placing your feet so be sure to be mindful in that regard.

A great feather in the cap and looking forward to completing it again in the near future.

Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
4 Mar, 2018
Very Hard
7km return
4 hrs
Good solid climb to the top with the first quarter of the ascent being the most taxing on the legs. Great views start from approximately 1/2 way up. Rock climb about 1/3 of the way from the summit with good foot/hand holds so shouldn't have too many difficulties. Fantastic views in all directions once at the top!
White Rock Ridge Hike (Ipswich)
25 Feb, 2018
Medium
6.5km
2 hrs
Good stretch of the legs. Not much climbing involved but the natural beauty of the area walked in is great. Being so close to suburbia is also a plus for those that can't get away to other tracks in the Sth East
