Second Pyramid (Girraween National Park)
13 Feb, 2016
Very Hard
4.9km return
3.9 hrs
This walk was far shorter than expected. We did the 'long' version described here but it's still only about a 2 hr trip car to car. We went up and over the first pyramid (easy enough) then slightly around the second then straight up. Retraced our steps to the car. Admittedly the 'longer' way around is far more exposed. The climbing was easy, probably a grade 8 (so a ladder basically) but if you fall you're going a long way. Great views and surprisingly windy on top. Highly recommend :D
Noowongbill Lookout (Lamington National Park)
10 Jan, 2016
Very Hard
14km
10 hrs
Great walk, I followed the track notes in 'Take a Walk' which seemed relevant to get to this lookout. If continuing on to Fountain Falls follow the directions up until a 15m waterfall, from here, it seems part of the ridge has become super sketchy so I suggest following pink tape which lead us from the creek to the falls, only about 15mins of walking. The walk to fountain falls is definitely the most remote I've ever felt in Lamington. Highly recommend :) p.s. take a compass for sure (and hiking poles)!!
The two of us took 8 hours from binna burra to the lookout to fountain falls and back again.
Mt Tibberoowuccum (Glass House Mountains)
24 Nov, 2015
Medium
1.7km return
1 hr
Did this as a circuit, there's several routes up and down the mountain, it's just a matter of finding your way back to the carpark or the road if you choose to descend a different way. Heaps of mosquitoes, pleasant views.
Stretcher Track (Queensland)
17 Oct, 2015
Hard
20.5km one-way
2 days
Walked to the Stinson Wreck from the Christmas Creek side of the Stretcher Track. GPS said 14km total taking 5 hours car to car. Pretty steep, recommend walking poles.

Great walk with many incredible lookouts. Highly recommend :)
North Branch Track (Main Range National Park)
12 Aug, 2015
Medium
7km return
3 hrs
Undulating hills through varying types of bush/rainforest. Great for a trail run although it may be difficult after long periods of rain without having to get your feet wet. Bell birds are abundant in this area.
Mt Castle Lookout (Main Range National Park)

Nice little walk to a fantastic lookout! Lots of bird life :)
Sylvesters Lookout (Main Range National Park)

A great lookout to be done with Mt Castle Lookout, fantastic views all the way to Brisbane on a clear day!
Winder Track (Main Range National Park)
12 Aug, 2015
Medium
12km return
4 hrs
We completed this walk in about 3.5 hrs, a lot of uphill on the way there. It happened to start storming as we got to the Winder but there was so much wildlife about! Lyrebirds, goannas, pademelons and a Hastings River Mouse! Don't let the map fool you, despite walking along a ridge line the vegetation is dense and there are no views except for the first 30 metres of the walk.
Morans Falls (Lamington National Park)
9 Aug, 2015
Easy
4.4km return
90 mins
Combined this walk with Castle Crag. Cold and rainy but we waited for a while until the clouds disappeared and we could see the valley below. Great views!
Mt Wagawn (Lamington National Park)
19 Jul, 2015
Medium
18km return
7 hrs
We did Wagawn and Hobwee in 6 hours in the rain. A complete white out which meant it was just walking around the rainforest for a while with no views. Still a fun day out and we heard a few Lyrebirds which was lovely :)
Well graded track, despite it being a mountain it seems pretty flat for the whole distance.
Spicer's peak (Main Range National Park)
20 Jun, 2015
Very Hard
6km return
4 hrs
A fantastic walk with Brilliant views almost the entire way. Great for pack training.
White Rock Multi-User Trail (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)
13 Jun, 2015
Easy
6.5km return
2 hrs
Fun to explore the rocky outcrop, lots of tracks darting in various directions. Surprisingly popular on weekends. The walk itself is quite boring but still worth a visit. Maybe do the Ridge Track though.
Also, the map online is different to the map on the info board at the start of the walk. Completely different trails are shown.
Crows Nest Falls Circuit (Crows Nest National Park)
7 Jun, 2015
Medium
4.5km return
2 hrs
Very popular walk for families. Lots of opportunities for a swim. The lookout displays views over the Valley of Diamonds. Very impressive. Quite a straightforward and well maintained track. Well worth your time if you're nearby.
Sandstone Overhang (Ravensbourne National Park)
7 Jun, 2015
Medium
4.8km return
2 hrs
Nice easy walk, turns out there's a 4WD track that takes you directly to the overhang. Sandstone overhang is quite pretty. Very popular on weekends.
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
31 May, 2015
Hard
6.5km return
3.5 hrs
1 hour 10 mins up, a fair bit longer down as I tried to move a boulder with my kneecap... the boulder won. Surprisingly picturesque and fun, opportunities for climbing if you go a little off track. Will definitely go again!
Upper Portals (Mt Barney National Park)
24 May, 2015
Medium
8km
3.5 hrs
Pretty easy walk, just follow the 4WD track. A much longer walk if you don’t have a 4WD. We did this walk in about 2 hours (ran back to get the steep hill over and done with), it’s pretty steep but the walk in from Waterfall Creek Reserve is ridiculously steep and unrelenting. I did it not long ago but wouldn’t do it again. Keen to go back in Summer to explore the portals!
West Canungra Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)
3 May, 2015
Hard
13.9km
5.5 hrs
Really lovely walk. Did this after heavy rain which made crossing the creeks more fun although there was an awful lot of white water - great deal of care was taken. When in doubt, follow the orange arrows nailed to trees. Hectic amount of waterfalls and a lot of wild life including spiny crays, red bellied black snakes and we saw our first wild quoll!!
Really fun day walk. We took 5 hours for the full circuit plus the small deviations to nearby waterfalls (a lot are not marked on maps).
