Carlo Sand Blow to Poona Lake (Great Sandy National Park)

20km return

Walked as a part of the Great Walk. Not the most interesting of the tracks, but a good walk if you have time while staying in Rainbow Beach. Some up and down, but nothing major.
Cooloola Great Walk (original inland route) (Great Sandy National Park)

Completed this with a group of 6. A challenging walk due to distance and blisters, but overall an amazing experience. The hike itself is not difficult with only small climbs up and down the dunes. Beautiful landscapes and a really remote experience.

It can be confusing as there are many fire trails throughout the bush land. I followed this route initially and attempted a different route back, only to end up lost for a few hours in the rifle ranges! Would recommend sticking to the out and back track.

Follow a firetrail up into the saddle of Mt Blaine. From there, turn right and follow along to the fence where you again turn right to head up the mountain. Extremely unstable boulders/rubble mark the next part of the trail, before a steep, steep ascent to the top. Short but steep!

The Cream Track (Springbrook National Park)
18 Apr, 2021
Hard
11.5km return
4.5 hrs
This is a good day out on the mountain!

Starting from Springbrook, we made it down in 1 hr 45min at a reasonable pace and without stops. Lunch at the bottom and 2 hours back up with a couple of breaks. Going down is tough on the body - and I'm 30!

This track is for people who hike often. It isn't the most scenic, but is a lovely journey all the same. There are better hikes in the area for beginners.

Comment from Dec, 2020 sums the walk up well. It is easy to follow and with good signage.

Nice little circuit - gradual incline the whole way around. Less than an hour round trip.
Mt Sorrow Ridge Walk (Daintree National Park)
18 Dec, 2020
Hard
8.5km return
5.5 hrs
Hard walk in hot conditions. Split into 3 parts: initial climb, up/down mostly flat section, final climb. Final climb is the most intense, make sure you have energy left in the tank. Saw snakes and leeches. Make sure to continue past the platform - about five minute walk to rock ledge with best view.
Mt Eerwah (Sunshine Coast)

Directions to start of walk are good as per previous comments. The trail is generally easy to follow. It is very steep as described.

Importantly, there are two peaks to the mountain. It is about 45min to the highest point of the walk. You can continue along this ridge for about 10 minutes. Views to the west here only. At the most southerly point of the ridge, the trail heads down again. It is from here that you can continue the walk for an additional 30mins to the second summit. This is where the trail is quite faint and hard to follow. Staying on the ridge is the main idea. It is lovely and through a rainforest section, before climbing up to a final rocky outcrop with a vantage point to the north-east. This is the best position of the climb and would recommend.

My advice is to mentally prepare yourself for the two summits, rather than thinking it's over at the first.

All up spent 4 hours.

A bit longer than the Western approach and more uphill.
Toohey Forest to Mt Gravatt (Brisbane City Council Local Walks)

Medium

Takes about an hour from the Toohey forest entrance, up to the lookout and then down to Logan Rd. Nice walk and rewarded with the beautiful city view towards the end. There's a few paths, but just use general compass to head in the direction you need to go and all paths converge in the end.
Yul-yan-man Track (Glass House Mountains National Park)

Great track. It is incredibly well-marked and worn - so if you don't see a pink marker in a while then backtrack! We ended up getting off track in in the Mt Beerburrum section.. and had an arduous bush bashing journey to find it again. Took 3 hours in the 10km loop return via Soldier's - and that was with a significant delay in getting lost at the start.

Mosquitos in the area are quite fierce. Take repellant and wear long clothes.
Mount Superbus (Main Range National Park)

10km return

Comment below describes the walk well.

DO NOT miss the rock arrow on the ground to the left of the path. The path veers to the left up onto the ridge from here. It is possible to get through if you lose the trail, just remember the ridge is to the left. A GPS is advisable, because it is very very easy to lose the trail on the way up.

At the top, the Superbus summit is not far from the junction of the paths. You will head up a steeper section, and immediately at the top there is a clearing on the right (west) side of the path. The metal tin marks the spot. The path then continues onto the bomber (seems to be about 45 mins of walking additional each way).
