This is a really nice walk for those that are building up to challenge the grade 5 difficulty walks. The walk is well worn and its hard to miss the track. The birdlife as others have said is abundant and a joy to the senses. Read the other comments - its all there. Enjoy!
Mt Greville (Moogerah Peaks National Park)

Started at around 9.30 am the car park was already full. We went up waterfall gorge which was also full of palms. very beautiful. Even though we had the instructions not to leave the gorge to get to the view area before the summit, we went right just before the end and scrambled to an inaccessible end so back tracked. Found the view described in others descriptions - fantastic and definitely better than the summit. Got lost on the way to the summit - luck there were plenty of people around. Not as fit as i needed to be and thought we would skip the palm gorge and descend via the SE ridge. No luck. Found a few markers but ended up walking up and down for another hour before we decided that the only way we would be safe to descend without getting lost was palm gorge! Absolutely knackered by the time we hit the Car park around 3pm. All in all a great day. Would love to know where the SE ridge is. maybe next time.

awesome walk. had only ever done the path to the lookout at Mt Cordeaux lookout and never ventured further. It was great. met an echidna on the path, a pleasant walk around the back of the mountain then opens out for a great view to the north

Well everyone said this was a special walk and it was. Sensational... literally. Such a great day did it in 4 hrs including lunch and tea and a few stops in the rock pool looking at the blue fresh water crays. Great track one I’ll be doing again

This is a great walk snaking around the mountain. Something for everyone. the Track is well marked, my 10yo daughter 'city girl' even managed it. You get rain forest and dry scrub. 2-3 hours up and 1 hour back.
