Paradise Cave (Sunshine Coast)

Got here maybe an hour and a half after lowest tide. Was hoping that it would still be shallow enough to just wade through but at that point, we had to swim a little to get to the sandbar next to the Paradise Cave (which was fine). A good day nonetheless! Some absolutely beautiful rockpools here teeming with fish and crabs 🐠🐟🐠🐟

Added this to the end of our Mt. Mitchell walk as we still felt energetic. Walked in the rain and got thoroughly soaked all the way!

Cheeky mid-week hike today. Done in 4 hours with LOTS of time for pictures testing out a new camera. Super easy with not that much incline at all. Interesting vegetation change from rainforest, to dry eucalyptus, rocky outcrops, rainforest again, and more rocky outcrops. Kinda sucks to see all the weeds that has crept in post-fire (inkweeds EVERYWHERE right now!). A little bit overgrown in some places with heaps of hairy, spiky plants so wear long pants :)

Started with bright blue skies that quickly turned overcast. Unfortunately it started raining at the top which doesn't make for great lookout photos but it at least made the greenery way more alive. The wildflowers were okay. Again, it was mostly weeds along this trail. A little disappointing with the crap weather and under maintained vegetation but at least we got some exercise in.

💐 Wildflower spots: Bulbine lilies, fringed lilies, native violets, native raspberries, golden everlasting daisies, native iris, false sarsaparilla, wonga vine, rock orchids hanging off cliff faces still blooming

Also saw like 5-ish pademelons which was cool :)

Super easy and quick track, done in a few hours. Easy to squeeze in on a Sunday morning ☺️

The wildflowers are insane this time of year! Do yourself a favour and check em out if you enjoy nature's goodness 💐💐💐

Slow introductory hike up Barney through the South Ridge summit route. First 3.5 - 4 km run thru very easy trails through management tracks and it gets progressively harder and steeper from there. I would like to think I'm pretty fit and can easily do long, flat 20~ km walks but the ascent well n truly kicked me butt! Took us 11 hours as a group with many many breaks along the way.

Spring wildflower season highlights: Pink rock orchids were in full bloom. Heaps of bulbophyllum colonies but not flowering atm. An unrealllll amount of sundews in little patches of red on the rocky ascent near the peak. Pink and purple masses of misc wildflowers that I can't identify brightening up the scramble 🌼🌼🌼

Cute local reserve. Really great for the BCC to gazette of some bush for our flora and fauna :) The grass tree spikes are so prolific and architectural rn + there's still a little bit of banksia, pea flowers, and other heath wildflowers blooming if that's ur thing !

Very easy warm-up stroll on our way up to The Pyramid! Lots of great rock formations on the way to the Arch too for people of all ages to climb on. Gorgeous wattle-strewn understory and creaky gum trees. The pea flowers are absolutely going off rn too, purples and orange-yellows everywhere 🍊🍇
A definite must do. Minimum effort and still quite fun :)

Ahhh what an absolute dream this track was 💞 First things first: the spring wildflower season is unreal! Pea flowers in pink, orange, purples. Lilies, wax lip orchids, geebungs, and wattles everywhere sweetening up the air 🌿

IMO the climb is more mentally challenging than anything! I did not think it was physically demanding at all... but there was defs times where I was a little too close to an anxiety attack 🙃

The section from a little bit further from where the steps end, and where the dashed line start moving left going up against the boulders was the worst for our jitters. We were absolutely scared shitless at seeing the steeeeepness of this big boi. Interestingly, the final scramble / the cliff bit made us feel nothing lmao. The way down was harder on our legs, but better for the jitters :)

TLDR sick views, decent workout, and a great walk for naturalists! What more could you ask for?

Kinda spooky at dusk! Charred trees from the fires, absolutely no one else on the track, just the noise of the wind against the big gum trees. Unfortunately not as many wildflowers as in the Northern tracks. Cool rock formations just before the waterhole that look like portals to another land 🗿

Unsurprisingly quite dry at this time of the year, but a nice gentle stroll on a Sunday nonetheless. Probably a good time to explore the bottom of the falls + Cedar Creek while it's easier to scramble down the waterfall face!

Track after the creek crossing is still closed, but you can still get to the waterfall and do the little open forest circuit track.
