Egernia Circuit (Jollys Lookout)
30 Oct, 2019
Easy
1.5km return
30 mins
An easy short loop at the start of the Thylogale Track. I started with this one then continued onto the Thylogale then Pitta Circuit which was 11.5km return from Jolly’s Lookout. Wonderful and quiet. Loads of birds and wallabies.

Pitta Circuit (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)

Beautiful short track in the rainforest. I loved the boardwalk around the huge strangler fig. Some great educational signs for kids and grown ups! I did this as part of an 11.5km return walk from Jolly’s Lookout (Egernia Circuit, Thylogale Track & Pitta Circuit). Very quiet in the morning and loads of wildlife.
Devils Break Loop (Queensland)
13 Oct, 2019
Easy
5.8km return
75 mins
We parked in the car park off Chalcot Road, Anstead. Walked anti-clockwise along Nursery Break, Devils Break, Powerline Road then a clockwise loop of Powerline Road, Rocky Mountain & Lantana Break. Then along Ugly Gully Break and onto Centre Road which took us back to the car park. Lots of wildlife (birds, lace monitors), certainly challenging in some sections but we would do this one again for the peacefulness and nice wide tracks. Definitely not easy though...should be graded at a medium. Total distance was 11km.
Lantana Break (Queensland)

5km return

We parked in the car park off Chalcot Road, Anstead. Walked anti-clockwise along Nursery Break, Devils Break, Powerline Road then a clockwise loop of Powerline Road, Rocky Mountain & Lantana Break (I would hate to tackle the hill on Lantana Break the opposite direction!). Then along Ugly Gully Break and onto Centre Road which took us back to the car park. Lots of wildlife (birds, lace monitors), certainly challenging in some sections but we would do this one again for the peacefulness and nice wide tracks. Definitely not easy though...should be graded at a medium! 11km total distance.
Blue Lake (Kaboora Track), North Stradbroke Island (North Stradbroke Island - Minjeeribah)
7 Oct, 2019
Medium
5.2km return
90 mins
Completed this walk as part of a 14km trip in the area. Started with the Kabul Track, then a side trip to a lookout then returned to the car park via Kaboora Track. We took a water taxi to the island then had a taxi drive us to the car park to start the walks. We also arranged for the taxi to return after about 4hrs (limited phone reception) to collect us and drive us back to the ferry! Blue Lake is really lovely to see however Tortoise Lagoon was dry. Wear proper shoes as the snakes are on the move... in fact our taxi driver told us to keep an eye out for death adders as they’re also around...
Enoggera Reservoir Circuit (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
5 Oct, 2019
Medium
10km return
2.5 hrs
Started on the Araucaria Track but then moved to the Link Track and did the whole circuit. Ended up being 10.9km...a long dry, warm walk but completed in 2hr 20min. I’m reasonably fit but found some of the hills to be killers...they’re just not nice! The signage is non-existent so you need to regularly refer to a map. I have absolutely no desire to do this one again...
Moss Garden (Carnarvon National Park)
28 Sep, 2019
Medium
7km return
3 hrs
This is a must do side trip off the main path through Carnarvon Gorge. It’s a beautiful spot to pause and marvel at nature! The moss is luminous and despite a few steps, it’s absolutely unmissable.
Amphitheatre (Carnarvon National Park)
28 Sep, 2019
Medium
8.6km return
4 hrs
Amazing! We had the place to ourselves so we were able to sit and enjoy the sounds of nature for 10 minutes. This is a fantastic side trip, nothing difficult but the steps at the end are steep so you need to be cautious.
Mickey Creek Gorge (Carnarvon National Park)

Medium
3km return
90 mins
A great, easy 3km return hike with a small amount of rock hopping. Quite picturesque and we were fortunate to see an echidna walking along near us before he/she started curling and burrowing for their life! Definitely worth doing when in the area.
