Curtis Falls (Tamborine National Park)
21 May, 2018
Easy
1.1km return
30 mins
Relatively easy walk to the falls. Nice view once down there. It’s a shame the select few take it upon themselves to disregard the sign by jumping the fence then sitting right by the falls, oblivious to anyone else wanting to take a photo.
Cedar Creek Falls (Tamborine National Park)
21 May, 2018
Easy

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.
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.
Purling Brook Falls Circuit and Warringa Pool (Springbrook National Park)
9 May, 2018
Medium
4km return
2 hrs
Some good scenery particularly at the top of the falls and up stream of the falls. The base of the falls was worth the walk.. Only half the circuit is open, so you’re going to be walking up all those stairs, so many stairs! It was a good work out for an old guy.
Twin Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)
8 May, 2018
Medium
4km
90 mins
What an awesome walk ... way better that Purling Brook falls. Heaps of water falls and views. A lot easier walk than purling brook (so many stairs) as well. Only issue is the limited parking spaces means you have to park on the side of the road on most weekends.
Bull Falls Lookout (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
6 May, 2018
Easy
1.1km return
30 mins
Nice easy walk to the lookout and to Bull Falls
Rocky Hole (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
6 May, 2018
Easy
600m return
30 mins
A short walk from the car park. A few stairs down to the water hole at the end but nothing too strenuous for the return trip. With a bit of rock hopping theres some good photo opportunities
Natural Bridge (Springbrook National Park)
8 Apr, 2018
Very Easy
1km return
30 mins
Great walk, easy. paved all the way. Plenty of parking nearby. Not too far from the walks at springbrook
Baxter Falls - Northern Approach (Kondalilla National Park)
25 Mar, 2018
Medium
3.3km return
90 mins
It had been raining on the day and the days before so the track had muddy and slippery sections. The entry to the track is on the left of the sealed road about 150m down hill from the gate where we parked. The track itself wasn’t too bad despite the conditions. Was worth the walk.
Booloumba Falls (Conondale National Park)
11 Feb, 2018
Easy
1.5km return
1 hr
Quite a nice walk. It largely follows the creek. A nice view of the falls at the end of the track... There’s a bit dirt road you’ll need to drive to get there
