Just decided to do a local walk today to stretch the legs. Walked to the Bluff, and then Little White Rock and onto the ridge trail to White Rock. Very enjoyable and a little over 7.5K.

Lovely easy walks. Did all of the trails in about an hour and enjoyed them all. Well looked after park with a little bit of Ipswich's history in the old church now being used as a function center and the caretakers old house. Lovely views of the Brisbane River.
Wivenhoe Hill (Queensland)

Very enjoyable casual walk. We started off on the blue trail, then the white trail and then the red trail back to where we parked the car. This is the best way to do this walk (anti clockwise). Doing it clockwise means you have a solid steady climb on the start of the walk. The blue and white trails are scenic with lake views. The view from the top of the hill on the red trail is excellent. also this is the only place with a large seat so was a good place to stop and have lunch while enjoying the views. Lots of birds and butterflies.
Flinder’s Peak Circuit - approach from South (Queensland)

Absolutely beautiful day for walking. Sun on our back and nice crisp breeze at most parts of the track. The car park was full and parking was a fair way away from the start of the walk. Lots and lots of people doing the walk, but still enjoyable. This is quite a challenging walk in that it never lets up with the climbing, and really gets your heart pounding.

Tough challenging walk. The views from the top are superb and make it all worth while.

Glorious day for walking. Did this walk by walking in on the Goolman Lookout trail and returning via the Rocky Knoll trail. Approximately 9.1Km. The bush is very dry.

First walk since the restrictions have been lifted. Many other people doing the same thins, as there were people everywhere. Still enjoyable to finally stretch the legs after 8 weeks of lock down.

Great to see the bush recovering, flowers out everywhere and swarms of butterflies. Very enjoyable casual walk.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)

The only walk open in the Main Range national park after the fires. After having done this walk on many occasions, it was distressing to see the amount of damage done by the recent bush fires. The day was overcast with light rain patches. You could see the plants were starting to recover in some areas with spectacular color on the new growth and shoots. Still a pleasant walk to do.
