Mt Cooroora (Sunshine Coast)

Short Sharp Sweet & Sweaty!
Started at 8.30am which was definitely a bit too late for this time of year - there is no shade for the last third of the climb.
I found the climb a challenge due to the very steep ascent and descent - lung busting up and very hard on my knees down. About 35minutes up and 40minutes down. Spent some time at the top where it was mostly shady, cool with great views.
The chain and stairs reduce the difficulty and would make it a much safer climb. Didn't need gloves.
I enjoyed the climb and glad I did it, but feel that Mt Maroon and Flinders Peak were much more challenging (for me), both of which I look forward to doing again.
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

I found it quite a challenge and took about 3hours 40min, including a good break. The walk along the ridge and across the large boulders was the best part - a lot of fun.

Started early, anti-clocwise; on a clear day. Did this walk last year and noticed how dry it was this time. Still, it is beautiful regardless. Very gradual but very steep return. Took 2hours 40minutes (I was on a mission :-)
Baxter Falls - Southern Approach (Kondalilla National Park)

Arrived at 8.30am on a beautiful spring morning. Easy walk to falls where there was quite a large young crowd enjoying the swimming holes under the waterfall, and provided us with some amusement whilst having our snack! Walk back was a bit more "puffy" . Took approximately 2 hours in total. Definitely recommend this walk.

Did this in August - stunning variety of scenery.
Started it late - approx 1.30pm but at least it was not busy and was able to pace through it while still enjoying the beauty!

Beautiful cool spot - worth the walk.. But preferably not in summer at midday, like I did. Have to grab the opportunity though
Amphitheatre (Carnarvon National Park)

Stunning little find - worth the climb up the ladder - easier than you'd think. Preferably do not do this in summer at midday, like I did. But have to grab the opportunity when it presents.
