Lincoln Wreck Circuit (Main Range National Park)

An amazing experience.

We ascended from the Emu Vale side (western approach). A 4WD would be recommended, although we did manage to get a long way up the road in 2WD Rav 4 before we decided to park it up and walk approx 2km to the start of the trail.

The path is fairly well defined and the pink ribbons make navigation a breeze. The terrain is fairly benign until you reach the turn off to the plane (which is clearly marked). After this point it is all uphill and a lot time is spent scrambling. Recent rain has made it harder to get traction so good shoes and pair of gloves would be highly advisable. The challenging climb is rewarded with the discovery of the plane wreck which is truly an amazing thing to see.

No snakes were sighted on this walk and no other wildlife apart from a few smaller birds that are hard to identify. Stinging nettles, berry thorns and Gympie Gympie plants are a pain for most of the trail. I would recommend wearing long pants and sleeves + maybe gloves
West Canungra Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)

A bit dry at the moment but still a beautiful walk. Started at lunch which was a bit silly because didn’t get to do it as slowly as would have liked.

We didn’t do the loop. We went down to the creek and back up the same way which was very steep and challenged us and we are fairly fit.

The creek was beautiful. We saw a large eel, about 1 metre. The only other thing I can think of mentioning is being wary of stinging nettles near wet areas. My wife got a nasty surprise after brushing up against a clump
