Cedar Creek - Black Creek (South East Queensland)
21 Aug, 2021
Hard
18km
6 hrs
Went up cedar, down black. About 10km round trip over 5 hours, 500m up and down. Going up cedar is relatively straight forward, just have to scramble up the banks for some of the more menacing falls. Going down black was a bit more sketchy - there was a section about halfway down where is stopped running but eventually pick up again - up the top was plenty of lantana and lawyer vine.

Definitely not a stroll in the park, but an absolute blast regardless. Other than the rockpools and maiala I didn't see a soul.
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)

At the carpark this mountain can look pretty intimidating, but it's actually not too hard. The first section was a bit tiring, but it's easy going once it gets to the rock scramble. The rock scramble section and flat section before the peaks reverberate sound (like an ampitheatre) which is pretty annoying when there's a lot of people. Decided to go to the north peak which had great views over the scenic rim and to Brisbane, and far less people than the south peak. I'll definitely be coming back to do it again.
Lincoln Wreck Circuit (Main Range National Park)
19 Jun, 2020
Very Hard

8 hrs
Up and down to the wreck in about 7 hours, although easily could have done in faster. Some has put up new pink ribbons recently (it appears as though the first section was burnt out), so navigation was simple. The final descent was a bitch as usual, but definitely worth it.

Next time, I'll be sure to do it properly and camp up the top.
