Mount Larcom Walk (Central Queensland)
1 Aug, 2020
Hard
7km return
4 hrs
3.5 hours return - 2hrs up 1.5hrs down (my level of fitness is only 5/10)
Winter is the best time of month to do this. Cool start and then ~20deg days are beautiful.
I did the walk on a Saturday morning, there was plenty of other walkers (the car park was almost full) and everyone was super friendly to one another along the track.
I used 2 x 600ml bottles of water which was enough given I did it during the cooler months.
The track is well marked with yellow and blue paint.
It gets windy at the peak so be careful!

Ghost Hole Track (Mt. Cootha)

Nice easy track - nothing really left to see of the mines but cool to know about the work that used to go on here.
Hemmant Quarry Reserve (Queensland)
4 May, 2020
Very Easy
1.2km return
20 mins
Nice easy stroll. Good place to take the dog.
Sometimes there’s a bit of broken glass near the tables that overlook the water.
BCC are doing a burn off this winter (2020) so hopefully that will clear it up a bit.
Warrie Circuit (Springbrook National Park)
5 Mar, 2020
Medium
17km return
5.5 hrs
Too many leeches to enjoy this walk I’m afraid :(
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
31 Jan, 2020
Hard
6.5km return
3.5 hrs
4 hours return (my level of fitness is only 5/10)
I wouldn’t suggest doing it in summer - it’s too bloody hot!
I used 3 x 600ml bottles of water and wished I took more.
There were heaps of march/blowflies at the top. Take insect repellant!
Piper Comanche Wreck (Queensland)
21 Nov, 2019
Medium
7.5km return
3 hrs
This is a great track that requires some navigational skills.
Walk the main track to the rock mound and then turn left and head down into the rainforest. There are arrows gouged into tree trunks to aid navigation. If you get to the large fallen tree that you have to walk along and clamber under, you’re going the right way!

Don’t forget to sign the book that’s safely stored in the wreckage in the old ammo box.
Take plenty of water.
If there hasn’t been any rain you shouldn’t have issues with leeches.
Mt Warning Summit Trail (Mt Warning National Park)
6 Nov, 2019
Hard
8.3km return
5 hrs
Very hot in summer. Take lots of water.
If you have an average level of fitness like myself you’ll complete it in about 4.5-5hrs.
The view at the top is magic.
There are lots of big flies at the top so take insect repellant.

DON’T go up there in inclement weather. There are lightning rods attached to the viewing platform and people have died up there trying to camp during storms.
Best of All Lookout (Springbrook National Park)

Very Easy

Very Easy

I recommend doing this at night. Take a torch (don’t shine it at the worms) and go for a wander - it’s beautiful.
Heaps of wildlife to see too (birds, snakes, frogs, the glow worms..)
