The view never gets old from the cave for me no matter how times i've been there. Really shouldn't be attempted without a GPS trail to follow as there is no real trail and quite easy to lose again when you do find the bits that are there.

Went back for an overnight for sunset and sunrise and it didn't disappoint. Very overgrown and what sections of trail that are there are slowly going.

Absolutely amazing and one of the most spectacular views. Very steep incline to get up to the ridge line. Totally worth the effort to get to the top. We started from old mill road. Don't under estimate the effort required to complete this one. Not for the inexperienced and a good fitness level required. Must have a GPS or topo map and compass for this one.

Take plenty of water if it's hot, went through nearly 6 litres of water and was glad i took the extra water with me in the end.

Absolutely amazing. Was pretty muddy in sections due to lots of rain overnight and also rained while we were on the circuit. Had hoped to do the pinnacle as well but the rain stopped any hope of that happening.
Piper Comanche Wreck (D'Aguilar National Park)

We got there around 7am and the mountain was still covered in clouds which made for a great misty walk through the forest. The decent down to the wreck was very muddy and slippery as a result. Beware the leeches when it's wet.
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)

Started the new year with a hike to the summit. Absolutley loved it, definitely one of my favourite hikes and will be doing it regularly. Physically it's demanding if you aren't fit otherwise i found the whole thing a moderate hike with the chute up to the saddle the only bit that was a bit difficult but just requires concentration as you go up through it. Planning a trip back for sunrise soon.

Nice easy walk with great views of the falls as you go around. Very busy at the moment but a great walk to do with Purling Brook.

The falls looked amazing after all the recent rains. Very busy as you would imagine at the moment but well worth it, just get there early to beat the crowds on the weekend.
Greenes Falls (D'Aguilar National Park)

Nice walk through lush rainforest down to the falls. While the falls themselves aren't really much to look at, the walk there and back is beautiful. Came across a large carpet python sunning itself on the boardwalk and a pandemelon happy to let me take photos and video of it.

Great walk for all ages and fitness levels, just take water.
Mt Tibberoowuccum (Glass House Mountains National Park)

After doing the Kondalilla circuit to see the falls after the rain. I decided to stop in and do Mt Tibberoowuccum as well. Had a little trouble finding the start of the trail but found it eventually. It's a good start incline and steep at times as you get to the top. A good fitness level and shoes required for it. Great view of Mt Tibrogargan.

Completed this walk yesterday with a friend and the view from the cave is nothing short of spectacular. We got a bit lost after missing some important markers and our gps trail, but soon found our way back to where we needed to be on the trail we were following. But we did find some incredible rock formations and photo ops we wouldn't have otherwise got.
Despite weather reports of it being really hot, we started the trek around 7am and took 2 hours to get to the cave. Beautiful breeze the whole time while on the mountain kept the heat down. Spent around an 1 hour in the cave and then an hour back down again.
We rebuilt a few rock cairns and made an additional couple in spots we missed on the way in for our's and other people's references.

Steep! What a calf muscle killer of a walk. Great view from the top when you do make it though.

Have done the circuit around the base a few times now and it's a great circuit. You can do it from either car park and if your just doing the circuit. Do it anti clockwise so you have the steps at the end. Have been up as far as chicken rock for the climb and that's as far as i'll go for now. Did find the chicken run around the back and got up past that first section but decided to go back down again.

Did this after doing Mt Cooroora. Steep but do able. The path could use a guide rail here or there to make it a little safer but on the whole it's good track to the top and gets easier once you get up.

Loved doing this one. Did it early in the morning when it was still covered in clouds when i went up. When the clouds burned off it was amazing. Will definitely do this one again. A reasonable level of fitness is required due to the steepness of the track up the mountain.

Nice walk on graded path for the most part but a little rocky in parts. The track has changed a bit in places on the way up. Great views from the top and a very popular track. Get there early to avoid crowds.

Great view from the top and some magical views of the glasshouse mountains at sunset. Steep walk but it's a good path all the way to the top.

Great walk but generally 4x4 only accessible. There's 2 swimming holes, a small one that you come to first but if you keep going down there is a 2nd bigger pool with the falls flowing over and continuing down. If you're up for it and can find your way down there is more swimming holes at the bottom of the falls. But be careful as there isn't a proper track down below the falls from here.
