Warrie Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

This is now without a doubt our favourite walk in SE QLD. It took us a 2hr 38mins (not including a nice lunch and explore) at a steady pace.

While I wouldn’t consider it hard, it is definitely in the must do list. It has amazing scenery from start to finish. The waterfalls seem to be endless and the midway point when the creeks combine makes a perfect place for lunch. Enjoy the incredibly loud cicadas 🦗 🎶

The walk was closed due to unsafe conditions, but we progress regardless. There are a few large downed trees which you will have to navigate but none are insurmountable.

A little up and down but nothing too hard. There is a much nice alternate, albeit less obvious or well trodden route to the lookout near the camp.

Follow the path as normal - once you see the sign AS0361 there is a steep(ish) oot track on the left. If you download What3words the exact location (revisited.sharks.silent). This route is slower going and often quiet steep but considerably more scenic off the 4wd 🚙 track.

If taking it from the lookout, just follow the ridge line at the lookout and you’ll notice a footpath. The Initial descent is tricky but don’t let that scare you off. Once you get going the scenery is great.

This is a really simple walk. I used this to introduce my daughter to bushwalking (at 5 years old we did it in around 50mins).

Keep an eye out for turtles 🐢 about 500-750m into the walk on the edges.
