Purling Brook Falls Circuit and Warringa Pool (Springbrook National Park)

We started the walk at about 10.45 am. There were lot of people. Making everyone aware - when going for walks/ hikes please make sure that you are not kicking or throwing rocks. My wife got hit by a rock which we believe was either thrown by someone above or accidentally kicked. Either way it is safer to take care. She got 9 staples for almost an inch long injury. It could have been worse. Also a good idea is to wear soft caps/hats. I think this will be mandatory for us now.
We had to return after this incident and could not complete the walk.
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)

We did this with a 16 yo and a 6 yo. It was really hard and challenging hike. Very steep. Confusing paths at places. Don't know who and why has placed the orange markers. But followed the directions from previous posts and took the correct paths. The views are fantastic. Did not feel like leaving. Coming down was easy over the "No Standing Zone". But the downward climb was really exhausting. The feet were badly hurt while walking over the rocks. We took good 7 hours.
