Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk (Kondalilla National Park)
20 Jul, 2020
Hard
58km
4 days
It really is a Great! walk. Thilba Thalba camp was a real highlight for the viewpoint overlooking the valley. All 3 campsites have great facilities in terms of toilets, toilet paper, hand sanitiser. Highly recommend using Mystic Mountain Tours for the shuttle bus to our start location (Baroon Pocket Damn carpark). Very flexible and accommodating. Good to support small businesses during this time. We had lunch at the Mapleton Tavern on our last day with views to the ocean. A great hike!
Lake Manchester loop (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)

Great walk with friends in 3hrs 45mins. Enjoyed the views of the lake at the beginning of the circuit and definitely agree with previous comments about doing it clockwise. Randomly, there was a peacock hanging out in the carpark area who seems to be quite friendly.
Buhot Creek Circuit (Daisy Hill Conservation Park)

Saw two kookaburras and Red tailed black cockatoos. Some parts a little unclear to navigate but we managed by backtracking. Really enjoyed walking around the quarry lake, it'd be a great swimming spot in summer.
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Hard

A great hike and beautiful weather. If you're feeling daunted by the difficulty, just remember the uphill climb is only for half the duration (approx. 1.75hrs), the descent is more focused on watching your step with less huffing and puffing. We started at about 9:30am so the trail was busy in parts but people were considerate and gave way where needed. I enjoyed the views leading up to the top just as much as the final gasp at the end.

Beautiful hike early in the morning with the steam rising off the water.

A great walk with plenty of variety in the landscape and beautiful lookout views. Highly recommend. The extra 1km walk is an easy add on.
Mt Nebo - Honey Track (Queensland)

Kept going left at the fork rather than take the honey track. A bit monotonous of a walk but we did see a pair of brown cuckoo-doves.
