Pages Pinnacle (Queensland)

Hard

Pages Pinnacle has two entrance points. One on Springbrook Road by Polly's cafe and one on Pine Creek Road. The Pine Creek one is not as steep. Maybe better for children. The Pages Pinnacle tree has etched on it a nice big PP if you can't see that. You have the wrong tree.
This is a great walk, lots of fun at the pinnacle. There is also a circuit you can do which is about 14km. Lots of different options. This is definitely going on my favourites list
Clagiraba Creek Trail (South East Queensland)
30 Mar, 2020
Easy
4.4km return
90 mins
It was a fantastic walk to take two 80+ year olds in this time of social distancing. We met one person only, who had walked in from the Beechmont end. It seemed to be roughly half way and the trail became rougher. It had taken us 30 mins walking slowly so we turned back to Clagiraba. I walked hellfire pass a few years ago and wondered if thats where it was leading to.

The walk was lovely, very peaceful, creek crossings and stepping stones a bit of fun. Tracks in good condition. Great family walk.

We had so much fun on this walk. The waterfalls are still amazing. We were in and out of water, clambering over rocks, gazing in awe at the massive Brush Box Trees. We saw blue crays, a snake (enjoying the sun, luckily he moved off the path) , pademelons, a fairy wren, bush turkeys (ha ha always see bush turkey)

Just a fantastic walk, Even small children can go as far as picnic rock and play in the water.

Very easy walk, 1km from carpark down to falls. The Falls were magnificent after all the rain. Fun in the water, Just a beautiful place
Minyon Falls Loop (Nightcap National Park)
15 Feb, 2020
Hard
6.8km return

Minyon Falls was incredible. At the base of the falls it was like being in a storm the wind and water from the falls plunging down was so strong. Even if you didn't get in the water you got saturated. The boulders up to the base are quite tricky. Because of all the rain everything was very wet. It was very funny to see everyone arriving at the falls pristine, trying to cross the river without getting wet. Then after they visited the base, wet through, disheveled with huge smiles. We didn't do the loop, walked down and back up the same way. Which was a great walk. We started the day at Byron Lighthouse, then Killen Falls then Minyon so it was a huge day out. But what a day. Still smiling.

Just a beautiful walk. Lots of great lookouts. I did the extra 3k down to Ballanjui falls. Well worth it.
Next time I'll park close to where you come out and walk the 2k down the road at the beginning.

Lovely walk, not difficult. Although signposted there was one place just before the lookout 4.8km in we weren't sure of the path GPS showed edge of cliff to left so we took that way and it was the right choice. Lookout was about 100m or so past the 6km mark.

Later bought the bushwalking book from the lodge and found out where weren't sure of the direction was a lookout. So we were not at any risk of being lost. Binna Burra has great signage
