Piper Comanche Wreck (D'Aguilar National Park)
20 Aug, 2023
7.5km return
2 hrs
Outstanding weather for this walk today. Cool and comfortable in the forest. After you find the initial turnoff to the track it's well marked and traveled. There are still some of the older blazes and pink tape markers out there but mostly it would be hard to lose your way.

The final section is steep with some loose surface, lots of roots and rocks which might get a bit tricky after rain or if the mountain is clouded in. That makes for a slower trip back, initially. Not too much left of the plane now, but still worth the effort imho

Bring plenty of water. There are no creek crossings on this track
Ewen Maddock Dam - Trail 1 (Sunshine Coast)
13 Feb, 2022
13.4km return
4 hrs
Quite varied with lots of bracken ferns under gums for the most part, with occasional views of the reed-fringed lake & inundated Melaleuca forest. Some sections had deafening cicadas, and lots of forest birds in places.

Making use of the walking loops takes you off the main trail that's also shared with mountain bikes and hose riders.
Tinchi Tamba Wetlands (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)
18 Jul, 2021
Very Easy
3.8km return
1 hr
Heaps of Eastern Grey Kangaroos and birdlife (though, no birds to be seen from the hide!). Had a lovely breeze so no problems with mozzies or midges. Lots of side trails so you can meander all over exploring
Governors Chair Lookout (Main Range National Park)

300m return
15 mins
Browns Falls (South East Queensland)

Ferny Grove Rail Trail (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)
27 Jul, 2019
Very Easy
2.85km return
90 mins
Lots of birdlife including quails on the day. As others have mentioned, watch out for bikes.
Tabbil-ban dhagun (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)
Mar, 2016
Very Easy
1.5km return
30 mins
Did this with one of the scheduled guided tours on a weekend. Learned a fair bit about the history and plantlife. Lots of birdlife and the odd bearded dragon along the trail.
Mt Rooper/ Swamp Bay (Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday)
28 Sep, 2015
2.3 hrs
With limited time we didn't take the Mt Roper loop, only the 2.1km trail direct to Swamp Bay. The well made path starts in grassland with grass trees, and crosses open forest and closed in dry rainforest. Small wooden bridges cross little creeks which would be delightful with water in them. Lots of birdlife and the odd wallaby. The bay at the end has a rocky beach and shelter shed for campers.
Lake Manchester loop (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
21 Oct, 2011
5 hrs
Lots of birdlife, turtles in the lake and evidence of wallabies though we didn't see one. Unfortunately some pig wallows too. Take lots of water as this track is hillier and longer than you expect : )
Keperra Saddle (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)
29 Apr, 2011
3.4km return
90 mins
Entry via Cobalt street in two places also. Turn right into Cobalt St off Mungarie and entrance is after 3rd house on left; other is off where Cobalt St intersects Glengarry Rd. Have yet to see an echidna but plenty of birdlife, bugs, and one snake so far...
