Eastern Peaks Circuit Girraween (Girraween National Park)
21 Sep, 2020
Medium
40km return
3 days
SK has the full review however, we really appreciated that the area is visited by true bush walkers and was very peaceful. We didn’t come across another walker while walking. Fires went through in 2019 and most tracks have been cleared and some signs have been replaced. We were relying on “Take a Walk in SE QLD” for track directions (wanted to do a loop) - this was a mistake. Luckily we had GPS watches that helped us rectify the absence of up to date directions...but we couldn’t do the loop due to tracks not being reestablished after the fire. Having said this we walked out on the tracks we walked in and it was a lovely and peaceful experience. We took everything required for remote camping (initial plan was to remote camp in designated camp spot that no longer exists). 2 nights camping.

Plenty of birdlife, kangaroos, evidence of boars, saw a large brown snake and a lizard.

Will be back to camp in the camp area and with mountain bikes.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

3.5 hrs
Lovely walk with fantastic views. Tracks can be narrow and if it is busy you need to stop and step off the track to allow people through. Best to do it early in the morning as it does become busy. It is nice though that walkers were quiet - no loud people - which shows me they are true trail walkers appreciating what surrounds them. I would do it again.
Bare Rock track and Morgan's Walk (Main Range National Park)

It was a great walk. We walked to Mt Cordeaux first then continued on these walks, totalling 15km. Do this walk early in the morning - gets very busy. Would do it again.
Cherry Plain to Burtons Well (Bunya Mountains)
29 Jun, 2020
Easy
6km one-way
2 hrs
We parked the car at Burtons Well and started with Mt Kiangarow first (this only adds 2.2km). This was terrific and we were able to see birds and wallabies on the track. Great views and we were the only ones on the track at 9am! We then walked to Cherry Plain via Ghinghion Lookout, Bottle Tree Bluff and Cherry Plain Lookout. These are all wonderful lookouts and well worth stopping at. Once at Cherry Plain, we walked along the roadway back to Burtons Well (about 2.4km). We found this quite dangerous with some cars not slowing down or veering away from us when passing, despite us walking as far left as possible. All up, an 11km walk.
Westcliff Lookout (Bunya Mountains)
28 Jun, 2020
Easy

75 mins
A nice little walk to spot some birds. We didn’t do it as a loop to avoid walking on the road. 6.1km, great views to the west from the lookout.
Barker Creek Circuit (Bunya Mountains)
28 Jun, 2020
Easy
10km return
3 hrs
We parked at Paradise parking area and set off at about 9am keen to walk the whole circuit. However, a sign indicating maintenance works meant that the entire section between Dandabah, Pine Gorge Lookout and Tim Shea Falls was closed. We ended up walking from Paradise past Paradise Falls, Little Falls, Big Falls then to Barker Creek Lookout and returning on the same track until the Y junction (300 metres in from Paradise parking) then heading to Dandabah and back to Paradise parking area. A total of 11km in just over 3hrs but well worth doubling up here and there. Others might not have the same experience as us when the full circuit opens again. Would certainly do it again.
Mount Kiangarow (Bunya Mountains)
28 Jun, 2020
Easy
2.3km return
1 hr
We parked the car at Burtons Well and started with Mt Kiangarow first (this only adds 2.2km) on our Cherry Plain circuit. Mt Kiangarow was terrific and we were able to see birds and wallabies on the track. Some really great views while walking up and when we got to the top. We then walked to Cherry Plain via Ghinghion Lookout, Bottle Tree Bluff and Cherry Plain Lookout. All up, an 11km walk.
Koondaii Circuit (Bunya Mountains)

A nice little circuit...especially when the clouds are moving through. Was excited to see Regent BowerbirdS and Riflebirds.
Toolona Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)
6 Jun, 2020
Medium
19.8km return
7 hrs
Waterfalls, lovely rainforest scenery and if you stop to listen (& people are not loud)...silence. #bliss Lovely walk that I don’t consider to be hard. Switchbacks are really good with going up in place of steps - I was glad there weren’t many as they kill the knees. I would return to explore other walks but do get worried that the parking and picnic area were quite busy and some people tend to be quite loud when walking and you lose the sense of serenity which this area can really provide. Overall though, I enjoyed the walk and the scenery.
Warrie Circuit (Springbrook National Park)
10 Jan, 2020
Hard
17km return
5 hrs
This is the second time I had done this walk and this time the walk had more wildlife which was lovely to see. The world’s largest skink was easily spotted along the track, Woompoo Fruit Doves, Cicada Birds, Brown-cuckoo Dove, Australian Logrunner, Catbirds...to name a few. Approximately 4hrs 50 all up and this catered for photographing the wildlife (pauses, searching etc). It is a track for quiet - no loud conversations etc so you can fully enjoy what the area has to offer. Oh, and there was a poisonous snake.
Best of All Lookout (Springbrook National Park)

Short walk but great birdlife and it was good to see the Antarctic Beach Trees. Would do it again for the birdlife.
Purling Brook Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

8.1 km all up - walked from the camp ground to begin this walk (camped overnight). Lovely walk however, my highlight were the birds coming down to drink from the creek at the end - if you are a birder spend some waiting time there.

A lovely walk with fantastic views. Great birdlife - saw pink robins (male and female), Silvereye, Superb Fairy Wrens, Tasmanian Scrub-wrens, Swift Parrot, Newholland’s Honey-eater, and the European Goldfinch to name a few. Be prepared for steps and take adequate water and clothing if the weather changes.

This was a leisurely stroll and it was lovely not to have many people around - gave you time to contemplate the area and take any pics. It is also a great location for a packed lunch due to its peacefulness. Great views some of the higher ranking people would have had in the day!

Great views of Wineglass Bay and the surrounding area. We could hear birds but could not see them! Make sure you wear appropriate shoes and take adequate water. It was lovely to walk along the beach. A nice walk overall.

A pleasant walk through bushland. The tracks are uneven so ensure you wear appropriate footwear. We returned via the riverbed which involved navigating rocks and boulders (no track). Currently the area is dry and the trees are feeling it.
Falls Circuit - Mt Field National Park (Mount Field National Park)

Russell Falls is amazing & had a lot of water flowing over. About 200 stairs later, you get to Horseshoe Falls then a couple of kms later, Lady Barron Falls. You can hear the birdlife but are lucky to see them! We were fortunate to spot birdlife toward the end.
