Tullawallal Circuit (Lamington National Park)
4 Mar, 2017
5km return
90 mins
Completed after the Coomera circuit. A good interesting walk for the less fit and elderly.
Rainforest Circuit (Lamington National Park)
4 Mar, 2017
Very Easy
1.2km return
30 mins
Good to take young ones on to introduce them to the rainforest!
Coomera Circuit (Lamington National Park)
4 Mar, 2017
8 hrs
Brilliant! The highlight of Binna Burras tracks. Coomera gorge is breathtaking. Plenty of crays, waterfalls and cascades. Great day all round.
White Rock Ridge Hike (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)
19 Feb, 2017
2 hrs
The walk is not hard nor long. White Rock itself is spectacular so im surprised it isn't more well known around Brisbane.

This place will boom in the next couple of years due to accessibility, encroaching housing estates and all new signage including an obvious marketing push from Ipswich Council.
Lower Portals (Mt Barney National Park)
8 Jan, 2017
7.4km return
3 hrs
Hot walk in the summer, thankfully the portals are there for a swim.
There are giant eels swimming with you, be warned!
Mt Cooroora (Sunshine Coast)
7 Jan, 2017
2.6km return
2.5 hrs
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 (South East Queensland)
3 Jan, 2017
2 hrs
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 (Lamington National Park)
13 Nov, 2016
17.4km return
6 hrs
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 (Lamington National Park)
12 Nov, 2016
4.4km return
90 mins
The sunset was incredible!! One of the best views i've seen from atop a waterfall.
Mt Blaine Summit Trail (Queensland)
6 Nov, 2016
1km return
90 mins
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 (Sunshine Coast)
16 Oct, 2016
3km return
2 hrs
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..
Mount Coolum (Sunshine Coast)
16 Oct, 2016
1.8km return
90 mins
Great walk for beginners, excellent views.
Gap Creek Falls (Main Range National Park)
9 Oct, 2016
5 hrs
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 (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
25 Sep, 2016
6.5km return
3.5 hrs
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 (Overseas)
3 Aug, 2016
3.5 days
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!
Mt Tunbubudla East (Glass House Mountains)
22 May, 2016
5km return
3.5 hrs
As I only have 2WD I parked on Beerburrum-Woodford Rd and walked the 4wd roads to get to the Northern gate. Followed the bike trail to the saddle (unmistakable) from there I turned left up the rocky section and through the grass before heading steeply upwards on the rocky slopes following the orange-ribbons all the way up.
As some said before, rock cairn at the top is the most interesting thing of this climb. The slide down the scree is unpleasant at best and just not fun.
I did this to complete all the Glasshouse summits but I will not be back in a hurry. By far the worst climb of any of the peaks as it is difficult the whole way with no reward.

Wont be back soon, West peak is better.
Mt Tunbubudla West (Glass House Mountains)
22 May, 2016
4.5km return
3.5 hrs
From the north gate, follow the bike trail until you reach the saddle.
From here the very obvious path up is the start, once you reach the cliff face, head left following the ribbons (or rock climb, your choice).
Not a long climb up but MUCH BETTER than East peak. Way better views and much easier and safer descent.

If you wan't to do both peaks in the one day I recommend doing East first to get it out of the way as it requires a lot more energy.
West peak is much more pleasant which leaves a better taste in your mouth at the end of the day than the crappy East peak.
Mt Tibberoowuccum (Glass House Mountains)
22 May, 2016
1.7km return
1 hr
Went up via the Barrs rd entrance at the 'T212' 4wd track.
From the trachyte carpark go back out to the road and turn left, follow this until you find the 4wd track with the T212 sign. Turn right at the first junction (3-ways) and follow until you see the rock cairn on the left side of the track. Follow all the way up.
Far easier and quicker than the route going up the south side of the mountain (although you dont get to see 4wd's getting bogged.)
West Canungra Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)
10 May, 2016
5.5 hrs
A must-do walk. Waterfalls and cascades galore walking through beautiful rainforest, couldnt ask for much more.
Albert River Circuit (Lamington National Park)
8 May, 2016
21.8km return
7 hrs
Completed in 5 hours and 10 minutes. A long walk but worth it.
Some sections are slightly overgrown but still easily discernible track.
Did the walk counter-clockwise which i think was a good choice.
Pulled 4 leeches off my ankles as the ground was slightly wet but not too bad overall. Worth it to see the waterfalls and Echo point.
