Beautiful eucalypt fire trails, met the owner of the later part of the track after you leave Moggil Conservation Park through the last gate, nice bloke. Saw no spiders as others have mentioned below.

Great walk for local history, the creeks were dry but seemed like they'd flow under a heavy wet season. The Turrabul circuit is definitely worrh doing alongside this track in one loop

Mount Blaine (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Hard

Absolutely marvelous hike, quite strenuous in places and a tough scramble to the summit at the end. I especially liked the short break off the trail to the left halfway up, to Mt Catherine. From here you can see panoramic views of Flinders Peak & Mt Blaine, which makes summiting Blaine more interesting. Make sure you turn left at Mt Blaine Saddle to get to the summit, but off-track to the right are expansive views off the northwest face. I didn't leave early enough and was caught in the dark, which was extremely dangerous at the summit scramble.

Great scramble to the summit, make sure to go left at the Mt Blaine Saddle if approaching from Flinders Plum. Don't get caught at the summit after dark like me, it was horrendously dangerous

Charlie Moreland to Summer Falls (Conondale National Park)

Great hike. The climb to Mt Allan is long and strenuous and very steep in places at the end but a very easy trail, the plantation pine forest is beautiful and I was caught in clouds of monarch butterflies in late May. The fire tower was closed due to structural instability but it's still a rewarding part of the hike. The bush track to Summer falls is lovely and serene and the falls themselves are impressive and fun to climb. I left at 8am and meandered the whole way, getting back at nightfall

Lovely hike up through the pine plantation, I was caught in a cloud of monarch butterflies at one point. The gradient is very steep for long legs, but the trail itself is very easy. The fire tower's 'currently closed' for repairs, but the hike can still be rewarding.
Gold Creek Reservoir (South East Queensland)

Average quality bushwalk circuit, more interesting to walk anti-clockwise but also easier to get lost. The lake is great for water activities in summer and there's lovely romantic lakeside picnicing spots
Bushrangers Cave (Springbrook National Park)

Great countryside hike from the NSW/QLD border at Numinbah to the caves, and a challenging climb from there to the summit of Wagawn.
I found the best track was to follow the farmers road (grassy tyre indents) up the hill from the carpark and left from there. Rather than jumping the barbed wire fence early jump it as late as you can to avoid the overgrown start of the trail, it gets much more beaten track after the start.
