Did this walk on a beautiful misty morning. The forest roads were easy to follow although I navigated using the Oxfam Trailwalker guide which was helpful as there were a few track junctions.
Starting from Miala, the walk has an easy start with a gradual decline through the rainforest. Lots of bird life and some nice views out over the valley. The forest then begins to dry out and the walk gets a bit steeper down to the creek. Quite a reasonable walk if you turn back at that point (approx. 9km one way), the gradual slope back up isn't too tough.
The next part of the walk up Side Break however is a very steep, unrelenting uphill section. Got my heart rate above 180bpm before I made it back into the rainforest when it flattened out a bit. Hadn't done the car drop so at the end I turned back and retraced my steps. The downhill was pretty sketchy at times. Took about 5.5hrs for the return trip. Only saw 6 other people on the track during that time although the rain had started to set in by late morning. Would do this track again.

Did this as an overnight hike, camping at big bend. My friend convinced me we should start at 3am so we could catch the sunrise from Boolimba Bluff. Definitely worth the effort and had the added benefit of finishing our hike before the heat of the day even with doing all the side trails. Easy enough hike to do in one day but we felt sorry for the hot and bothered hikers heading back in the afternoon.

Super fun hike. You get to do a whole lot of rock hopping. Plenty of waterfalls to swim in along the way if it's a nice day for it. The return hike took me about 3.5hrs.
