Did this in the late arvo to see the sunset from the top. It was a little cloudy but still beautiful, with the sun rays shining through the clouds. I would have stayed for the full moon too if it wasn't so cloudy.
The Northbrook River Trail (Northbrook Gorges) (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
2 Jan, 2023
Medium

This was a great walk...6km of rock hopping, wading & swimming!

I wore wet shoes, which probably wasn't the best idea, as my feet were a bit tender by the end from all the rock hopping.

There are faint tracks to the sides of the creek in a lot places, however, keep your eye out for snakes. We came across a python that looked like it had just had a feed & it wasn't interested in moving off the track. We also spotted a couple of other snakes that quickly slithered away.

It was quite busy, but that's to be expected in the holiday season. We did the longer walk, which involved a lot more rock hopping up the creek. The wading & swimming didn't really start until after the closer carpark.

The track back up to the carpark can be easy to miss, so make sure you pay attention on your way out.

I would love to go back & start at the closer carpark & continue exploring up past the main gorge sometime.
Bally Mountain (Gold Coast)

The views at the top are beautiful. Definitely worth the uphill climb. You can see all the way to the coast one way, & look out over valleys & mountains the other way.
I did the 6km out-and-back trail to the summit. It starts out with a wide fire trail, then once you cross the creek (which I almost missed) you start the uphill climb on narrower trails which are washed out & rocky for the most part.
Near the top there is a small rock scramble but nothing too difficult. Amazing views & not very busy at all.
At a steady pace, it took about 1.5 hours going up & less than 1 hour coming back down.
White Rock Ridge Hike (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)

Great short walk to an amazing rock formation. Took the ridge trail on the way in & the fire trail on the way out. Would recommend doing the ridge trail both ways, as it is much more interesting. Bit of a rock scramble if you want to climb to the top of White Rock but nothing too difficult. Such a shame that there are so many names carved into the rock at the top.

What a great hike! Not very long, but still challenging & beautiful views. Starts with a basic uphill fire trail before you get to the main track. We looked up just in time to spot the tree with PP which marks the turn off. The rocky ridgeline was a little intimidating, but there were a lot of places to grab along the way, so I made it across ok. There is an alternative path if you're not comfortable with the rocky scramble across the ridgeline...we took this on the way back. After the ridgeline we continued to the lookout at the end of the track.
Bridal Veil Falls Via Champagne Falls (Tasmania)

I loved this walk! The waterfalls were just amazing! I can't believe we didn't see another sole the entire time. The walk up the firetrail to the start of the falls loop isn't anything special, but the circuit track to the falls was beautiful. Highly recommend this walk.

Bit of a drizzly overcast day with limited visibility, but still made for a nice walk. There was snow on many of the paths which was pretty to see. There was also a lot of water flowing over some sections of paths. Luckily our shoes were waterproof.

Nice easy walk with great views. Glad we did it clockwise so we went 'down' the 600 or so stairs. Loved the seats along the way that told you how far or how many steps to go.

We did this walk on a very overcast day, so no views for us! The walk was still quite enjoyable & beautiful in it's own way. I would love to go back on a clear day to experience the gorge views, which I hear are amazing.
King Island (South East Queensland)

Nice easy walk along an exposed sandbar at low tide. Glad we wore shoes as there were some sharp places underfoot, especially if you walk out past King Island as far as you can. Low tide happened to be around sunset, so we stayed for that too!

A nice, easy walk around the river & coastline with a path the whole way. Lots of beach inlets & viewing platforms. Great way to spend the afternoon.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)

Great walk with ever-changing scenery & amazing views! I would class this as medium, not hard. The track was easy to follow, however, a little muddy in places.
I did Bare Rock & Morgans Walk as well. It took me about 1.5 hours to get to Cordeaux lookout, then about another 1/2 hour to get to Bare Rock. Both are definitely worthwhile.
It was pretty cloudy on the way up, so views were limited, but it cleared up by the time I got to Bare Rock, so I was able to take in the views on the way back down. Beautiful!
