Upper Portals (Mt Barney National Park)

We camped overnight at Yamahra Creek Campsite. There was plenty of water in the creek, it was beautiful.

We started hiking from the Waterfall Creek Reserve Camping Ground because we don’t have a 4WD. The 4WD track was definitely the hardest part. The track was long and steep in sections with little to no sun protection. It took us about 1 hour and 45 minutes to get to the Cleared Ridge Parking Area due to the numerous water breaks we took along the way. The Cleared Ridge Parking Area has beautiful views of Mount Barney and Lake Maroon. The hike from the parking area to the Upper Portals is mostly steep and downhill. The path is quite overgrown in sections but there is plenty of signage so we never got lost. The little creek crossings were easy enough to cross and before we knew it we were at the campsite. It took us about 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach the campsite. We then set up camp and continued on to the Upper Portals. The creek crossing before the Upper Portals was particularly tricky to cross due to the amount of water but we got across eventually. We were the only people at the campsite, it was absolutely serene.

Overall, it was a beautiful walk and would be a great first overnight hike, particularly for those with access to a 4WD.

Mt Cooroora (Sunshine Coast)

My new favourite hike on the Sunshine Coast. The climb is steep but worth it for the beautiful views of the Sunshine Coast. I got up in about 35 minutes, stopping multiple times on the way up to catch my breath and take in the stunning view. I would love to do it again in the late afternoon while the sun is setting. 10/10.

Easy walk with an amazing view of Noosa and the Sunshine Coast hinterland from the top. A nice place to enjoy a cold beer while you watch the sunset.

Steep but fairly easy walk. You can get to the top in under 20 minutes easily if you are reasonably fit. Stairs most of the way. Beautiful view of Coolum from the top.

Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney National Park)

Very challenging but rewarding hike. I won't be doing this again any time soon but proud to say that I've ticked this one off the list! I downloaded the Wikiloc App the day before we started and I'm very glad I did because we almost certainly would have gotten lost without it.
Cedar Creek Falls (Tamborine National Park)

Quick and easy walk with nice swimming areas at the end. It does get very busy though, especially on a hot day like today.
Pages Pinnacle (South East Queensland)

Hard

It’s an easy walk up to Pages Pinnacle but it’s also very easy to get lost. I used the wikiloc website for directions and that helped me keep on track. When I arrived at the razorback ridge I realised I may have bitten off a bit more than I could chew...there were steep drops on either side and I wasn’t game enough to scramble across the rocks. So unfortunately I didn’t get to see the stunning views from the top of Page’s Pinnacle but it was a lovely walk nonetheless. Pages Pinnacle is not for the faint hearted (or those scared of heights)!

My favourite hike! It’s best to go on a clear day for the best views. Not a very hard hike, except getting up the rocks can be a little bit difficult, but as long as you take it slow and steady you’ll be right.
