Mt. Mathieson Circuit (Main Range National Park)
28 Jun, 2011
Medium
10.5km
3 hrs
This is an easy and interesting walk through rainforest and sclerophyll forest following Spicers Gap road then an easily followed walking track. Highlights, the many mature grass trees and the rainforest itself. Views of Spicers peak and mount Mitchell are limited by tree cover.
East Lookout (Glen Rock Regional Park)
20 Feb, 2011
Medium
3km return
1 hr
A great hike & can be combined in a full day walk via Glen Rock, following the tableland to Red Rock and Mount Philip. Glen Rock can be negotiated by it's northern base. The ridge track (next to a fence) leading to Glen Rock once the 4WD track ends becomes narrow with a short scramble.
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)
4 Dec, 2010
Hard
10.2km
2.5 hrs
Did it in the rain with no vehicles in the carpark with every gully, wanna-be-gully & the track itself running a banker . . . no view whatsoever this time at the lookout other than the wind whipping the fog over the ridge. Other highlights brilliant color local Fungi & native slugs.
Mount Coolum (Sunshine Coast)

Medium
2.6km return
90 mins
I have never seen so many good looking fit people jogging up a mountain before. If you like a bushwalk with traffic this is for you !
Mt Ninderry (Sunshine Coast)
28 Nov, 2010
Medium
3.3km return
90 mins
Mount Ninderry track starts on an easy grade then enters a section that will set your heart pumping then back to easy for the final section to the lookout. There are interesting rock formations up top to be explored but be careful near the edge. A communications facility and a Memorial plaque also occupy the summit area. There is some evidence of surface workings (gold) near the track.
Mt Ngungun (Glass House Mountains National Park)
27 Aug, 2010
Easy
2.8km return
90 mins
A short hike up to the summit ridge with a few options off the main track. A small cave on the track & good views of several other peaks in the Glasshouse Mountains are the highlights. The summit ridge has little vegetation the limit the views.
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)
24 Jul, 2010
Hard
6km return
5 hrs
Cotswold track is a classic ridge track & gully hike.
Enjoy the slog up the ridge, observe the main gully under the cliffline to your right this is the gully you need to take, the track descends down a little into the gully under the cliff, then ascend this gully.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)
13 Jun, 2010
Medium
10.98km
3.5 hrs
Great little walk for those who like formed tracks well worth the effort though, limited space on the summit lookout, don't get too close to the edge !
Best done in dry conditions otherwise you will be a leech magnet !
Mt Castle Lookout (Main Range National Park)
Sometime...
Easy

30 mins
Good view of Mount Castle, walk up and back from Dalrymple creek for exercise.
Mount Edwards (Moogerah Peaks National Park)
Sometime...
Medium
6.5km return
3 hrs
Highlights on this walk are crossing the dam wall and the view at the top, otherwise the track is fairly ho-hum and very easy.
Last did this one about six years ago.
