Mount Wongawallan (Gold Coast)

The 4WD track is quite flat, (around half way) then it gets quite step and rocky. The mine/well is pretty cool and definitely quite deep if you drop a rock in it. The view from the look out is worth the walk alone.

I can see why it's called Browns Falls. Mud, mud followed by cleaning the shoes to cross the creek, before more mud. Waterfall is stunning.

This may not be a walk, but I'd definitely recommend stopping if passing it. It's such a great angle of a nice waterfall.

This is perfect on a cool winter day. Can't imagine doing it during summer. Side note; you don't need to climb on all 4s it's not that steep. Although there is one section you climb over a rock if you follow the white markers.
Well maintained national park.

Nice flat walk. Creek was quite low (to the point where there was a spot spread out enough that I could walk over without getting my socks wet). Perfect spot to lay back and enjoy the winter sun.
Wyberba Walk (Girraween National Park)

Short walk to round out the day. Saw 3 kangaroos in this short walk. Birdlife is plentiful in the early mornings and late afternoon. Perfect for a stroll if you are camping at the near by camp grounds.

Wonderful stroll on a winter day. Track is well maintained and at junctions there are posts indicating which track leads in what direction. If your keen on some extra distance, continue on through to the junction for a bigger loop.
Purling Brook Falls Circuit and Warringa Pool (Springbrook National Park)

WOW. The rain has done wonders to the falls and truly looks spectacular at the moment. Just look at some of the older photos on here and you'll see just how much the drought had an affect on the amount of water pouring down. I did the extra bit to Warringa Pool and the cascades along the river also deserve some attention too, although they are a bit belittled after seeing the waterfall.

Add this track as purling brook is filled with the waterfall and not much information on these rock pools.
I did this part of the track today. Was way more muddy compared to the main purling brook track. The pools were cold, on a summer's day I'm sure it'd be wonderful.
Mapleton Falls & Wompoo Circuit (Mapleton National Park)

Wonderful viewing platform right next to the car park, although you can't really see much of the waterfall. Park facilities = a great place to have a picnic. And to top it off the walk had educational cues and the 2nd view point also didn't disappoint.
Gheerulla Falls (Mapleton National Park)

Done this walk after some what wet summer season/ recent rain. Waterfalls wasn't as gushing as I'd hoped. Quite long grass along the track down. Was the only one down at the waterfall, which is nice.
Cedar Grove Rainforest Walk (Amamoor State Forest)

Nice morning walk before everyone in the campgrounds woke up. Found another spot to have a swim in the creek around half way along the track (which there is a shortcut to the campgrounds). If you're camping here you might as well go for the stroll.

Was really amazed at this picnic facility. Picnic tables all along the creek to a wonderful viewpoint. Recently done so everything is nice and fresh. If you got a spare 15 min on Springbrook it's worth a look

Nice walk, considering it's mainly just a fire trail. Surprised at the top was quite a nice grassed area, a few benched and a couple picnic tables too, with a great view towards the north east towards Moretan Bay and the surrounding areas.
Bushrangers Cave (Springbrook National Park)

Amazed to say the least. Other then the long grass (I'd recommend some long pants), the start of the track is nice and open walking from the bottom of the valley up, having nice view of the surround moutains. A little of bush and then Bam you hit the caves. Took around 5 min to walk along the whole caves/wall.

Definitely one of the most popular if not the most popular walk on the Gold Coast. Or at least the busiest, luckily the car park is huge even some bus spots. Every 200m there is almost some scenic to look at, if that by a wonderful old tree, the creek or the actual waterfall. Just got to get in early before the masses of people come.
