Gold Creek Reservoir (South East Queensland)
26 Apr, 2021
Medium
5.5km return
2 hrs
We travelled counter clockwise which worked out well to get the largest altitude change done first. Definitely pay attention to the track signs as we overshot our turns in a few places and had to backtrack. Lovely mix of bell and whip birds. Variety of butterflies and other insects. Wet and dry sclerophyll forest. We picnicked halfway at the top of the dam. Rock skipping fun by the water for the kids. Peaceful views over the reservoir on the return loop.

Wonderful views from side track of Flinders Peak and Mt Blaine. We detoured to Mt Catherine for a very peaceful picnic with nice views. Very steep and loose gravel in some places but well worthwhile. We tied this in with the Sandy Creek Track for an easy going shorter set of walks with our three children.

Tied this track in with Mt Blaine track for a shorter set of walks with our children. The track is an open graded gravel road. Creeks totally dry. Beautiful hoop pines and cattle yard with impressive termite mound.

Grasstree Track-Eagle's Nest Trail Loop, Redwood Park (Toowoomba)

There seem to be two maps with very different routes (one attached). It was very dry, no waterfalls on our chosen day. A lot of weeds stifling the native vegetation, but the local conservation groups are putting a lot of work into controlling it. Trails are road-width and slashed in many places. Very steep up and down in sections. We intended to walk counterclockwise following Redwood Forest Track returning via Fern Tree Gully track. Instead through some confusion with the maps we actually walked through Fern Tree Gully first! So we then decided to walk to the top completing the Redwood Forest Track and returning via Redwood Bridal Trail & Eagle’s nest trail. Total about 6.5km for us with little feet managing the whole walk very well.
Devils Break Loop (Moggill Conservation Park)

Taken counterclockwise - a good choice given the loose gravel on steep up-slopes. Had a picnic at the peak on some cool boulders. Seems popular with horse riders and dog owners. Watch out for dog poo! The horses were a treat for our children. Regular back burns evident on the southern slopes up to the path. Great views in all directions through eucalyptus. Very beautiful walk, we will probably do this one again.

Beautiful walk, make sure you bring extra layers for this time of year. Incredible big gum trees at the top and some enormous fig trees at the bottom. We completed witches falls and witches chase walks together with our three children, they loved it.
