Stinson Crash Site from Christmas Creek (Queensland)
27 Jun, 2020
Hard
15km return
8 hrs
I had visited the Stinson via the stretcher track previously so this time we decided to go the short but steep way up from Christmas Creek. It took us about 3 hours each way from Christmas Creek to Point Lookout. Worth continuing on to Point Lookout for the view of Mount Warning and the Lamington plateau. Amazing forest, pretty walking following the creek to Westray's grave and an initially very steep hike up to the Stinson campsite.
Mt Greville (Moogerah Peaks National Park)

A very pleasant walk as always. Went up palm gorge and down the ridge this time. Both gorges are beautiful but personally I prefer the ridge for the descent - good views and easier down hill.
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
31 May, 2020
Hard
6.5km return

We had hiked this previously and only seen a few people. This time it was packed to the point of being unpleasant - following a conga line back down the mountain! The views are great and it is a steep but straightforward hike with only a brief section of scrambling. The track is extremely well worn so no navigational problems.
Mount Maroon Caves (Queensland)

Not too hard to find the cave and great views once you get there. The cave to the summit was a lot more challenging navigationally! We used a GPS track from alltrails.
Mount May (Mt Barney National Park)

The previous comment nearly put us off doing this walk. Glad we ignored it and went anyway! We had done this walk a couple of times before and the path was no worse than we remembered from several years ago. If anything the bushfires at the start of the year mean there is less vegetation at the moment. Given that this is not a maintained or marked trail it is still reasonable easy to follow. The descent route from South peak has not been impacted by fires at all.
