Gap Creek to Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens (Mt. Coot-tha)
13 Jun, 2021
Medium
10km one-way
3 hrs
The Citriodora trail (part of the walk) is very well maintained and wide (fire brigade access) but also close to the freeway (noise pollution). Botanical Garden is very rewarding itself (has many paths to walk).

Medium
21.8km
7 hrs
Completed the walk by walking on two occasions from either Binna Burra and O'Reillys to the middle (Chakoonya lookout) and return.
The purist: this does not count
The pragmatic: did the walk in each direction and did not have the hassle with the car pickup/ overnight backpack

I included the walk as an add on, coming back from the Coastal Walk. The sandy management trail was downhill and therefore not too exhausting.

5 Apr, 2021
Medium
11.6km return

The stormy weather forecast made for a very quiet day. Impressive moss covered log loading ramp from timber getter times.

I enjoyed that the three lookouts on top were located a short distance from each other. This makes for pleasant walking around on the summit.

Scenic but busy on a holiday weekend.

Mt Merino (Lamington National Park)
24 Jan, 2021
Medium
22km

Did it as an add on to the Coomera Circuit and included also the Chakoonya lookout with the view to the east. A bit further you will find the half way marker of the Border track (for those who do the complete border track in two sessions).
M4 parking/Ubajee walkers camp/Gheerulla falls loop (Mapleton National Park)
5 Jan, 2021
Medium
14km
4 hrs
I did it as a return to spare me the boring loop along the Delicia Rd, a bit longer but the rain forest section is worth it.
