Did the walk today very easy .. it’s open eucalyptus forest. Very dry at the moment but the creek was still flowing and small water fall present
Gwongoorool Rock Pools (Binna Burra)

Medium

Nice walk rewarded by rock pools at the bottom... But you need to walk back up the way you came down... will get the un fit puffing but really not all that bad just a few stairs towards the top to make you feel alive... some good info on the rock formations on the way down... worth the walk... the cafe is only a few kms by car further on 👍
Tibrogargan Circuit (Glass House Mountains)

Easy

Did this walk on the weekend pretty simple walk a few good views as you walk around the base... did the first part of the summit trail... which gets steep quick.. it’s a marked track to the first Rock face at least. Turned around after that...too hot in the day... . it’s not easy, plenty of loose Rock and essentially just climbing up a steep rocky path / trail...

Very Hard

Did the first part to the first rock face on the market track ... didn’t even make to chicken rock? Was about 10am way too hot.. very steep track with lots of loose rocks .. the track ? well it marked but certainly not smooth paving . Essentially just stepping from rock to rock...you’re legs will burn and you’ll be puffing if youre not fit

Simple circuit every easy. Wheel chair access on part. Plenty of different trees market it that your thing. Creek at the bottom was just a trickle.. but understandable given the recent dry weather

Witches Chase (Tamborine National Park)
21 May, 2018
Medium

Did the Chase and the circuit on the weekend. To reach the Witches Chase parking area you need to drive down a dirt track about 50m.

The chase pArt of the track is not all that difficult although its over grown in some sections. It decends through nice forest to the falls lookout which looks out to the west over the valley. The biggest issue is proably 200-300m in where the track is simply a pile of 200mm-500mm sharp edged rocks constituting a track.
Witches Falls (Tamborine National Park)

Did the Witches Falls circuit as a continuation of the Chase track. If youre doing the circuit I’d suggest travelling in an anti clockwise direction as the zigzaging track up the face of the hill is less of a climb albeit longer. From the falls you double back along the track and either head left and tackle the steeper track to the carpark or head straight ahead to the seasonal lagoon (very green but dry on the weekend). When you’re at the lagoon there is a alternate “wet track” marked by star pickets and reflective markers which takes a slightly wider berth around the “lagoon”. The balance of the circuit is highlighted by some huge strangler figs with monstrous buttress roots. The ascent anti clockwise isn’t all that spectacular although some good views of the valley to the West. There are a few signs saying don’t do this section after wet weather due to land slides. There wasn’t any evidence that a slide has occurred in recent times.
Cedar Creek Falls (Tamborine National Park)

Did this track on the weekend . Good easy walk . Sealed path all the way. If you’re planning on making a day of doing the walks on Mt Tamborine I’d recomend doing this one first as it on the way up and more importantly it has a limited number of carparks and given it a nice place for a picnic it gets full early and then you’re faced with parking the top of the hill the at the turn off probably 300m away.
