Fantastic hike, about an hour's drive from Brisbane through Mt Glorious. Prepare to get wet, but for me that's the funnest part!

Wear some shoes you don't mind getting soaked, and be prepared to swim at parts. The hotter the day the better as you will be in the water most of the time.

At the end there is a stunning swimming hole with a small waterfall, I aim to arrive at the swimming hole around midday to get the most sun in the gorge. In the past I have been able to climb the waterfall, but with the recent high rainfall the pressure was high and seemed too dangerous.

Don't forget to stop at one of the local cafes or pubs on your way home for some well deserved food!
