Trachyte Circuit (Mt Tibrogargan) (Glass House Mountains National Park)
26 Aug, 2019
Medium
6km return
2.5 hrs
We did this in two sections, turning off onto the Soldier Settlers track about a third of the way along and hiking to Beerburrum through variable bush, mainly dry Sclerophyll forest, but also fern gullies and casuarina glades. The track is good, although a bit rocky in places. We returned the same way and rejoined the Trachite track, turning it into a nice half day walk of about 20 kms. Even if you’re tired, don’t miss the Jack Ferris lookout for views across Tibrogargan, Coonowrin, and Beerwah.
Box Forest (Lamington National Park)

NPWS rate this walk as a 4, but this really only true of a few kilometres around the creek crossings: the rest is an easy 3. We did this when it was relatively dry, and I can appreciate that it would be bit more challenging in the wet. Also, there are some narrow bits zigzagging up very steep slopes and my partner, who doesn’t cope well with goat tracks, found this a bit stressful. But overall a great walk: some truly breathtaking views and idyllic forest glades. The box trees in particular were magnificent. Absolutely do not miss Elabana Falls.
Albert River Circuit (Lamington National Park)

An easy 5km walk from O’Reilly’s to the start of the circuit. It took us about 4 hours, plus lunch and photo stops. The track is a bit overgrown in places, but it is easy to follow and well worth the effort.
