Goomoolahra Picnic Area (Springbrook National Park)
14 Nov, 2020
Very Easy
500m return
30 mins
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

Mt Cotton (South East Queensland)

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.
Natural Bridge (Springbrook National Park)

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.
Bushrangers Cave (Lamington 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.

Jenyns Circuit (Tamborine National Park)

Nice walk through a diverse rainforest, was quite amazed when it just randomly changed to eucalypt trees. Some water was flowing around the creeks near Jenyns falls, but didn't see the waterfall itself.
Palm Grove Circuit (Tamborine National Park)

Nice short loop through the tambourine rainforest. Although I only saw one kookaburra. I definitely heard at least 5 different other types of birds. The bird sounds were magical.

Would do again, just such great views. Managed to walk all the way along the ridge to the end. you get almost a 270deg view of both the hinterland, Hinze dam and some of the coast too. View is just worth every bit of the hike.
Plunkett Conservation Park Cave (South East Queensland)

Nice walk, with a decent amount of elevation. Fun climbing around the rocks at the top. The cave is big enough to sit in and really nice and cool compared with the heat along the tack.
Gins Lips Swimming Hole (Queensland)

Viewpoint was ok, now there is a sign saying don't trespass to go down to the bottom of the waterfall, which is quite sad judging by how nice it looks down there. You can still manage to go to the top of the falls which was fun following down creek till you reach the edge of the cliff.

Really does go almost the entire way along the fire trail. If you miss the turn off the trail there is another tree that is marked 'PP' too. Since I didn't scramble all the way along the ridge I decided to follow along the fire trail a bit further to see if there were any other vantage points, but nothing great came of it.
MacDonald Rainforest Circuit (Tamborine National Park)

Nice short walk to take in the fresh rain forest air. Only bad thing is it looks like a recent storm has came through and knocked quite a few trees down onto the path.

Wonderful short walk. View is nice, You can see the waterfall from the view point, but it's no the greatest angle. Overall just the rainforest and bird life are great the way it is. The view from the park facilities I believe sees all the way out to Brisbane.
