Kenilworth Bluff - Wilcox Family Park Trail (Sunshine Coast)

Hard
5.1km return

Quite a challenging hike. Quite steep, With both steep inclines and declines. Path is very narrow and only a foot wide at times so not a good one if you have bad knees or ankles. The trail takes you to the very far right of the bluff and it’s a fairly short scramble to the top. There’s not all that much of a view at the top just the quarry and valley which is disappointing as the bluff looks so cool from the bottom as you’re making your way up. Once you make it to the top the trail is very loosely marked and eventually runs out. You pretty much have to bush bash your way across the plateau as it’s not very well travelled and hard to pick out an actual path there’s also pretty much no view and it’s a long trek as you make your way across the top. We trekked for another couple of kms and eventually hit a ravine which we were unable to cross, at that point the pink ribbon had run out and there was only the occasional alternative marker on the odd tree but that’s it. I actually think this trail is 5km one way not return as we gps’d it as we went and ended up doing just over 12km by the time we made it back to the car. If you’re going to do this one I’d turn around at the peak and you’ll have a much more enjoyable hike unless you know the area and feel comfortable bush bashing along the top. If someone is able to mark out the trial along the plateau
It would be so awesome of you, I’m sure everyone would be So thankful! All in all a great challenge with beautiful surrounds the whole way.
Booloumba Falls (Conondale National Park)

Highly recommend, very beautiful spot with amazing views and a great water hole to swim in. Entrance says 4x4 only however we managed fine in our Subaru Forester. As long as you have some clearance you'll be fine, there's just a couple of small river crossings to pass which were fine when we went however my be harder after bigger rains.

Great little spot to check out! There is also a campsite and toilets at the falls so a good spot to spend the night if you're travelling. There was only a trickle of water at the falls but it was still a spectacular site. There is 3 different look outs and MANY stairs so even though there isn't much of a trail you'll still get a bit of a workout in.

Trail is hard to find, its approx 15km in rather than the 10km advised. There is a 4x4 track most of the way so if you have a 4wd you can drive most of it. We didn't walk all the way as ran out of time so will have to go back some time. Deff lots of wild life on the roads so be careful.
Mothar Mtn Rock pools shared trail loop. (Woondum National Park)

Rock pools are beautiful. There is a carpark and toilets right at the rocks pools and you can park up and walk straight to them, there's no trail for the rocks pools. You can walk along the rocks for quite a ways so there is lots to adventure. A great spot for a pick nick esp in summer when its hot as the pools will be super refreshing. You can also access the Mt Boulder trail head from the car park which we also did.

Great hike and views. We are about Med fitness and it took us 1.5hrs up and back including photo time and breaks along the way. The hike is a steady climb up pretty much from the start with a steep climb for the last 300m. Once you get to the towers, if you walk down towards the 4x4 track you'll see an opening on the right hand side which offers a great view. On a clear day (which it was) you can the top of Mount Cooroora.

Beautiful easy walk, great place to bring visitors and kids. It gets quite busy as it’s such an accessible trail so if you can go during the week you’ll Avoid the crowds. It’s also a great spot to have a picnic and a dip during the summer but again a very busy spot.

Beautiful walk, easy on the way down and a bit of a heart pumper on the way back due to the incline however it flattens back out in time for you to catch your breath and stroll back to your car. The falls are a beautiful sight at the end and deff a must do if you’re in the area! The waterfall was flowing well today after recent rains.

Recommend doing this walk from the Southern entrance as there is space to park there and a nicer walk in. We tried the Northern entrance via the gravel road and were told off straight away from residents. There's nowhere really nearby to park either so may as well just head to the other entrance.
