Coomera Circuit (Lamington National Park)
18 May, 2022
Medium
17.4km
6 hrs
Waterfalls, mud, creek/river crossings and more mud! This circuit took me just under 5hrs with a lot of photo stops for fungi and waterfalls. The track is very muddy at the moment but that was half the fun! My boots had to come off for a few water crossings as the water is flowing quickly and it’s still up in some sections. A really great walk to experience the magic of Lamington NP 🥾🌳🍄
Sphinx Rock and The Octopus Tree (Wellington Park)
29 Apr, 2022
Medium
8km return
2.5 hrs
Amazing walk through beautiful rainforest around Mt Wellington. The fungi were amazing - so many bright and unusual shapes. A gentle incline up Radford’s Track…Lower Sawmill is pretty steep and rocky but not an issue. The views from Sphinx Rock are terrific and the Octopus Tree is very cool! Going down Reid’s Track is pretty steep and rocky but worth it to see Silver Falls. Just over 8km all up.
South Cape Bay Track (Southwest National Park)

Even when Tassie has been dry for a while, this walk is beautiful. Fungi everywhere and beautiful breezes walking along the duckboards. The views are terrific from the cape…I can’t wait to do the full walk from Melaleuca. We completed this walk in 3 & 3/4hrs and that included a LOT of fungi photos 🍄🥰😊
Cape Raoul (East Coast)
25 Apr, 2022
Hard
14km return
5 hrs
This walk is just over 15km if you visit both lookouts at the cape. It’s an amazing walk but don’t underestimate the incline on the return walk! At a quick pace, it gets your heart rate up! The flora and fauna is wonderful on the track and today there was a colony of seals relaxing at the base of the cape. We completed the walk in just over 3hrs which included time to stop and take pics as well as having snacks. A brilliant walk with constant amazing views along the coast.
The Springs (Wellington Park)
24 Apr, 2022
Medium
5km return
80 mins
There are a few ways of getting to The Springs but we followed the tracks as listed above. A great walk for just over an hour…millions of fungi out and beautiful fern trees everywhere! A terrific short walk that’s very close to Hobart.
Narcissus Hut to Cynthia Bay (Lakeside Walk) (Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park)
29 Mar, 2022
Medium
18km one-way
6 hrs
We started the Overland Track at Ronny Creek and completed it at Lake St Clair visitor centre on 30/03/2022 clocking up 86km. There is only 1 Overland Track walk and it’s the entire 85’ish km walk….not the one that stops at Narcissus and you get on the ferry to complete the journey!! The final 2 days walking were beautiful and I was so surprised to not see more people here. Camping on the beach at Echo Point was truly amazing and the sunrise that greeted us for our last morning on the track was nothing short of spectacular. Out of the 31 independent walkers who started with us, 9 of us walked out on day 7 to the visitor centre. I felt such accomplishment in walking the entire length.
Overland Track (Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park)
24 Mar, 2022
Medium
63km
8 days
We started the Overland Track on 24/03/2022 from Ronny Creek. Day 1 was nowhere near as difficult as I expected…that was with rain, wind and freezing temps! The steps and chains to Marion’s lookout were challenging but we both managed well even with 17kg packs. We took 6 nights/7 days to walk the entire length and walked out to the Lake St Clair Visitor Centre on 30/03/2022 clocking up 86km. The entire walk was a wonderful experience and there just isn’t enough superlatives to add to sufficiently reflect my experience in this location!
Waldheim Forest Walk (Reynolds Falls Nature Recreation Area)
23 Mar, 2022
Very Easy

This walk was absolutely beautiful. It’s luminous and has plenty of awesome fungi along the short walk. The history of the chalet is great and we even got up close with a huge wombat! Collage of fungi and the resident wombat uploaded.
Castle Hill (North Queensland)

Medium
2.5km return
1 hr
Start this one early to avoid some really hot temps. I walked from The Strand, straight up Gregory Street, then Stanley Street, Victoria Street, Stanton Terrace then onto Hillside Crescent before starting the goat track. Return trip to The Strand was just over 6km…there are a lot of stairs & they just keep giving! Amazing views & brilliant at sunrise 🌄
Rainforest Circuit (Daintree National Park)
22 Feb, 2022
Easy
5km return
90 mins
Did this walk a few times while in the area. It’s easy enough to walk in from the carpark and complete the short circuit twice before returning to the carpark. It’s a beautiful track - plenty of birdlife and butterflies. It was raining most of the time but under the canopy it was just amazing - cool and luminous green.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)
18 Feb, 2022
Medium
6.8km return
2.5 hrs
Have done this walk a few times at all different times of the year. Started late today (7.30am) but it was terrific…weather was perfect and cool (ish) in the rainforest…lots of wallabies and birds and very quiet on the track. Walked to Mt Cordeaux and then onto Bare Rock, a total of 12.5km. A slight incline with stairs until you get to the top… my Garmin estimated about 170 flights of stairs but it didn’t feel like that much. Can’t wait to do this one again and again - the views are spectacular.
Poona Lake walk (Great Sandy National Park)
8 Feb, 2022
Easy
4.2km return
90 mins
A terrific, short, out and back hike to a beautiful lake! Not much wildlife to see at 8am but it was a peaceful walk only coming across 1 other person.
The road to Bymien picnic area could do with some maintenance though - Some sections of corrugations and large potholes.
Warrie Circuit (Springbrook National Park)
7 Sep, 2021
Hard
17km return
5 hrs
This is a beautiful walk at any time of the year…it was 10 degrees when I headed off today but perfect for hiking! My 5th time on the circuit and I always see something new. Today was all about the fungi though! I’ll upload a couple of collages. The walk is only about 14km and I completed it in 3.5hrs.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)
18 Aug, 2021
Medium
10.98km
3.5 hrs
A lovely cool morning to do this walk. Took 2 1/2 hrs to complete after staring at about 8am. Some birds around including bellbirds, whip birds, wrens, yellow robins and yellow spotted black cockatoos. Was quiet on the track, only passing a few people. Awesome views from the summit but a bit hazy and cloudy so we couldn’t see all the way to Brisbane.
Mickey Creek (Carnarvon National Park)
24 Jun, 2021
Medium
4.7km return
2 hrs
This is not a hard walk! Make sure you keep walking past the sign that says ‘end of formed track’. The track is clear to follow over the rocks and after a hundred metres or so, you will be up in the gorge! It’s impressive but Warrumbah is better!
Warrumbah Creek (Carnarvon National Park)

This isn’t hard…the only slightly challenging part is when you are actually in the gorge and balancing on slippery rock ledges. I thought this walk into the gorge was amazing and better than Mickey Creek!
Boolimba Bluff (Carnarvon National Park)
23 Jun, 2021
Hard
7.1km return
3 hrs
Don’t let the ‘hard’ rating scare you off doing this walk! The majority of the walk is very straightforward. The steps are challenging but only because they’re all in one section - anyone with a reasonable level of fitness can achieve it. There’s plenty of areas to stop and get your breath back if needed. The view is brilliant. I just wish I hadn’t put this walk off for so long!
Moss Garden (Carnarvon National Park)

Always a beautiful walk! I remember years ago actually walking in the moss garden and touching the moss…I’m so glad we’re not allowed to do that anymore so as to keep it all ‘untouched’. It’s a beautiful part of Carnarvon!
Amphitheatre (Carnarvon National Park)
22 Jun, 2021
Medium
8.4km return
4 hrs
We did this walk after the Moss Garden and total km’s back to the visitor centre was about 10km. We were fortunate to have the ampitheatre to ourselves and were able to sit and marvel at the quietness & stillness. This is a must see when in the area!
Somerset Trail (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
17 Jun, 2021
Medium
13km return
3 hrs
I just love this walk… whilst it wasn’t overly exciting today in terms of wildlife spotting, i just marveled at the scribbly gums and grass trees. It is a beautiful walk… I always add the 1km Piccabeen loop at the end as a cool down. 2.5hrs for the 13k’s.
