Conondale Great Walk (Conondale National Park)
21 Jul, 2020
Hard
56km return
4 days
Bit of a boring walk, scenery doesn't change and waterfalls are not as impressive as those in other parts of SEQ.
Made the mistake of attempting to complete the hike in 2 days. As I didn't have a 4WD, had to start from Charlie Moreland Day Use Area and take the Mount Allen track. This added more kms to the hike than planned.
Finished day 1 at 6:30pm (Charlie Moreland to Tallowood)
Day 2, we were rescued by a woman who offered to drive us the rest of the way. If we didn't take offer would have hiked about ~35km in a day and finished at about 8pm.

At Tallowood, mauled by possums who wanted our food. Be weary of them.

Conclusions: don't attempt to complete this hike in 2 days if you are starting from Charlie Moreland. Might be okay if starting from the official beginning point.

Carpark was fully packed out, had to park a few kms up the road, but luckily there is a bushwalking track that connects the secondary carpark to the main one (Box Forest Trail). This adds an additional 5km of hiking to the overall return distance.

A very unloved track, bit rough around the edges with a number of creek crossings, but stuning waterfall.
