Mt Cooroora

Easy, fun and straightforward quadkiller.
Its too bad this is so far from my home. I'd be here every weekend...

If you love Tibrogargan, Warning or Beerwah, choose this next.

Mount Goolman

Follow the main track until you are at the base of Mt Goolman. Choose one of 2 unmarked ridges that ascend from the main track (There is what looks like the remnants of a very old track on 1 ridge but very hard to spot. Basically trackless for the first 2/3 the way up. Zig zag your way through lantana until you are funelled onto a small footpad which takes you to the top. Retrace your steps.
Very slippery under foot, partially exposed, not very good views. Not fun. Not worth it. Flinders or Blaine are far better options.

Toolona Creek Circuit

A fantastic walk, full of waterfalls, cascades, thick rainforest and a couple of viewpoints. The walk is fairly long as you tend to take your time going past each waterfall.

Did the walk the morning after a large thunderstorm. A million leeches is an understatement. Every 2 minutes we had to stop and flick 3 or 4 leeches off our boots.

Do this walk!!

Morans Falls

The sunset was incredible!! One of the best views i've seen from atop a waterfall.

Mt Blaine Summit Trail

Great little climb, really enjoyed the scrambling. Not too many mountains in this area track directly up the angle of repose so slipping rocks and dirt WILL be encountered on this trip!

This is a much quicker alternative to Flinders but still quite enjoyable.

Mount Cooroy

Great views from the top on both sides. Mountain view and ocean view. Straight forward track, easily followed by joining the conga line of hundreds on the way up. The track was destroyed and became full of loose rocks and dirt which became hazardous. Its a shame the public arent allowed to climb all year round..

Great walk for beginners, excellent views.

Gap Creek Falls

This hike exceeded my expectations. The cliff area around the waterfall is amazing. Some good creeks to go exploring up. Saw goannas, snakes, crimson rosellas and found a satin bowerbirds nest with blue items in it.

If only I could find a way to the pool at the bottom of the falls...

Flinders Peak Hiking Track

Really enjoyed the walk. a good challenge for those who want to try out rock scrambling.
The track was easy enough to follow. The relatively new orange arrows always keep you heading in the right direction.

Inca Trail

Started the trail on the day of my birthday.
The Inca trail was all that I expected. The archeological sites along the way make it that much more incredible. Then you have the views, some of the prettiest walking I have ever done.

Well worth the effort, and yes, day 2 is as hard as you've heard.

The porters are legendary for a reason, they are superhuman machines!
