Box Forest (Lamington National Park)

What a beautiful spot! We had a wonderful day chasing waterfalls, and even spotted a blue spiny crayfish! 😁 We had the trail to ourselves for most of the day. Super impressed with ourselves, it was the longest track either of us had ever done. It was an easy trail for gradients and hardly any stairs, but the path was narrow with a steep drop, lots of leaf litter concealing roots and rocks - easy to turn an ankle. also some scrambling to get to the waterfalls. (I might maybe have slipped on a river rock and landed on my arse 😳) I think I might need to invest in some proper boots!

Lovely solo trek through Springbrook today. But gosh it's dry!! Twin falls was only Solo Falls. You could see on the track everywhere that there should be water but wasn't. Very pretty walk, I'm assuming after rain it converts to stunning. Some amazing rock formations and lookouts too . I can see why many people list this as one of their favourites. Easy gradients, a few stairs but never a lot at once.

Lovely little hike at Witches Falls today :) Beautiful spot of rainforest with some truly impressive trees. Saw some albert lyre birds and my friend STOOD ON a SNAKE OMG!! Would very much like to come back here after we've had some rain. Some other people on the trail but not many. It was very peaceful.
3.3km 75 minutes.
