Light Line bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park Bush Camps)
13 Sep, 2010
Easy
3.6km
3.5 hrs
The walk to Lightline bush camp was interesting today. Saw a massive python at the beginning of the track. Then approx 500m down the track was a scrub turkey going about its business before I interrupted it. Numerous lizzards scurring around. Some beautiful parrots just added to the beauty of nature.
When I reached the bush campsite the fire pit has been removed. I'm not sure why? I dug a small hole in the ground and setup my fire. The coffee didn't take long and soon after that I put my noodles on.
What a great afternoon. Eating my lunch and in the distance I cold see F-111's and F/A 18 Hornets flying around. Tried out some new gear, a good walk.
And on the way back the python was still there. I guess if your THAT big you don't have much to worry about ! (At the widest approx 20cms)

Coomera Circuit (Binna Burra)
9 Aug, 2010
Medium

The track is in good condition. No fallen trees. But as we finished the walk and were back at the camp ground the weather started closing in and the rain started. So I would think the track conditions 9-8-10 to at least the 13th or 14 th August will be slippery conditions. So recommend walking poles and take care at all cliff edges.
The best thing about the rain is that the Coomera Falls will be more spectacular !

Another day... Another walk....

On the way back last 1.5km is hard when you know you are so close ! Loved it all the way. There is a little land slide near Lower Ballunjui Falls but enough people have been through it to start wearing the track through again.

Scrub Road bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park Bush Camps)
24 Jul, 2010
Medium

Just before crossing the Enoggera creek, on the left follow the rocks to the waterhole and then a faint track appears on the bank. This is a great spot to have a cup of coffee on the banks of the creek. It's only a 500m diversion but well worth the short walk.

As always a good track. I always enjoy the campsite there with a great fire pit and storm shelter and water if you need it.

Aboriginal Artwork Track (Mt. Cootha)
22 Jul, 2010
Very Easy
1.4km
1 hr
This track is always very interesting and especially so if you take someone along and experience the artwork together. A few mozzies new the creek but otherwise OK. Anytime we do a walk at Mount Cootha we always combine it with a walk through the Botanical Gardens a great way to unwind.

Aboriginal Artwork Track (Mt. Cootha)
21 Jul, 2010
Very Easy
1.4km
1 hr
Still a nice and easy walk. Some exposed roots and rocks. Also some of the steps can be a bit high. But overall a good little walk. The creek beds are still dry. You can finish off this walk with a lunch at the BBQ areas all around the park.

This park can be very busy during the weekends. I would suggest going during the week with less crowds. And more time to enjoy the walk.

Another day.... Another walk....

As always such great views. Camped the night up there to get sunset and sunrise photos. But more unexpectedly we ended up with the most amazing photos and videos of Wedgetail Eagles gliding in the early mornings.
