Sergeant Dan Stiller Memorial Reserve (South East Queensland)
28 Aug, 2020
Easy
11km return
3 hrs
Came back to do this walk in reverse and to do the bottom section that was closed the weekend before. We also walked up between the lakes and river. Very enjoyable walk. We started and ended our walk at Warrill Park.
Sergeant Dan Stiller Memorial Reserve (South East Queensland)
21 Aug, 2020
Easy
11km return
3 hrs
Quite a relaxing walk. The eastern side of the lakes is in full sun with little shade so it gets hot. No track signage, which is disappointing. Luckily there were a few locals on the walk that could direct us, because without their input we would have definitely not found all of the track. Warrill Parkland is quite new and a good place to start and end the walk.
Poets Rock (Karawatha Forest)
8 Aug, 2020
Easy
4km
1 hr
We combined a few other tracks including the Poets Rock track and ended up walking 11.6 km in total. Lovely bush land walk with lots to see. There are a multitude of tracks in this park and we will be returning to do a few of them later this year.
White Rock Ridge Hike (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)
4 Jul, 2020
Medium
6.5km
2 hrs
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.
Gamlen Circuit (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
27 Jun, 2020

Another short stroll. Not much to see on this walk except for birds.
Kholo Gardens (Multiple Tracks) (Ipswich)
26 Jun, 2020
Easy
2km return
1 hr
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 (South East Queensland)
19 Jun, 2020
Medium
13km return
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 (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
13 Jun, 2020
Very Hard
12km return
3 hrs
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.
Spring Mountain (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)
6 Jun, 2020
Hard
11km return
4 hrs
Tough challenging walk. The views from the top are superb and make it all worth while.
Goolman Lookout via Rocky Knoll (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
30 May, 2020
Medium
7.4km
2 hrs
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.
White Rock Ridge Hike (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)
23 May, 2020
Medium
6.5km
2 hrs
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.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

Medium

Great to see the bush recovering, flowers out everywhere and swarms of butterflies. Very enjoyable casual walk.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)
1 Feb, 2020
Hard
10.2km
2.5 hrs
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.
Mt. Wellington - Zigzag/Icehouse loop (Wellington Park)
28 Jul, 2019
Medium
8.26km return
3 hrs
This was an interesting walk and a little challenging in places due to steps and more steps to climb up. We went up the Ice House track and then returned via the Zigzag track.
Bruny Island - Grass Point Track (Bruny Island)
25 Jul, 2019
Easy
6.6km return
2 hrs
Did this walk as part of the Flute Cape track. We walked the Fluted Cape track anti-clockwise which meant we finished on the grass track and headed back to the start. Fantastic views from the top of the Fluted Cape. We did not see any white wallabies, but did see numerous wallabies. Very interesting flora and definitely worth doing.
Fossil Cliffs Circuit (Maria Island National Park)
22 Jul, 2019
Easy
4.5km return
2.5 hrs
Did this walk after spending the nigh at the Penitentiary. Absolutely mind blowing to be standing among the 275 million year old fossils, and makes you feel insignificant in the grand scope of time. Very easy walk and we explored all of the old ruins on the way.
Darlington to Frenchs Farm (Maria Island National Park)
21 Jul, 2019
Easy
12km one-way
4 hrs
This was our return walk after three days. We took the Inland track on the return. Definitely a lot harder than the coastal track as there are quite a few large ridges to traverse over. The walk is very pleasant and the vegetation here is almost rain forest like compared to the drier coastal walk. We also took the Oast house branch back to Darlington.
Haunted Bay (Maria Island National Park)
20 Jul, 2019
Medium
22km return
4 hrs
Very long walk which is tough going when carrying a big pack. We dropped our packs just after the fork in the trail to Haunted Bay/Robey farm and completed the rest of the walk with day packs. The walk itself is through tea tree and scrub, but the view at the end of the walk made it all worth while.
Darlington to Frenchs Farm (Maria Island National Park)
19 Jul, 2019
Easy
12km one-way
4 hrs
Took the early ferry (10.30) and after signing the walkers registration, we set off on the coastal track. We did a short detour via the painted cliffs but the tide was in so could not go very far or get any decent photo's. We arrived at French's Farm at round 3.30 and set up camp. Lovely walk and very trying as we were not used to carrying heavy packs. Clean toilet and fresh water available here.




Chauncy Vale Caves (Tasmania)
18 Jul, 2019
Easy
7km return
3 hrs
Lovely casual walk. The exit from the caves area can be a little hard to find if you do the walk clockwise.
