When you get to the northern end of Sunshine Beach there are two tracks. The left track which takes you on the Noosa National coastal walk is the wrong path. Take the right path which takes up on the hill near the rocks. Then go downwards where the caves are.

Mount Coolum Powerline Track (Sunshine Coast)

Good track, way better than the official track.

Just a note that when you get to the first set of powerlines, don't take the first left turn. The first turn has a motion camera set up and the path goes besides some private residence. This is the wrong path, the correct path is the second left. You have to make sure you actually walk past the powerline and then turn left and there will be a very narrow path. The path is defined and is clear the whole way.

The rainforest section isn't really different from other rainforests in Australia. But good to see platypuses

Conway Circuit (formerly Whitsunday Great Walk) (Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday)

I completed the entire track + the honey eater lookout trail in one day in 30 degree heat. It took me about 8 hours. The final uphill section can be quite gruelling after hiking for 6 hours straight.

Thankfully there are a lot of watertanks on the way for filling up water bottles, just remember to purify the water before drinking it.
The lookouts, particularly honey eater lookout was quite scenic

Beware of the snakes and spiders. On the journey I ran into 7 snakes , although mostly harmless beware and stay alert. Also beware of the massive spiders that have set up webs in the middle of the path. They are quite intimidating and could cause some damage.

Overall good hike that doesn't really need 3 days to be completed.
