Daves Creek Circuit (Binna Burra)
Mar, 2018
Easy
12km return
4 hrs
This is the most beautiful walk. There are spectacular, drastic changes of scenery and incredible open views. Pretty easy, not too hilly. Saw a python, some pademelons, and a couple of crays. If you can, hop up on Surprise Rock for an incredible 360 degree view.

Really beautiful scenery. Easy walk. Well worth the drive out.
Bare Rock + Morgan's Walk (Main Range National Park)
Feb, 2017
Medium

Still one of the most beautiful walks in SE QLD. Sighted a few lyrebirds and pademelons along the way. There are some more overgrown sections that have spiky native raspberries and the occasional nettle, high socks/pants recommended.
Mt Cougal (Springbrook National Park)

Beautiful walk, unlike any other, but I won't attempt this one again without almost complete body covering. Got shredded to pieces by the foliage (of which there is a LOT). Lots of sugarcane near the start of the track, and a fair few wait-a-while vines in the rainforest sections that are at head height.

Cover up, bring lots of water, and leave this one for a cooler day. You'll love it.
Box Forest (Lamington National Park)

Beautiful track, just very very cold in the morning. The creek that the track follows is just stunning, and the falls are beautiful.
Araucaria Falls (Main Range National Park)

Gorgeous track, like walking through a fairytale. Lots of slippery mud, the odd stinger plant, and a snake or two, so do take care.
Purling Brook Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

Great walk, views out to Surfer's, black cockatoos and a beautiful waterfall.
Mt Greville (Moogerah Peaks National Park)

Followed the directions listed above and headed up SE Ridge and down via Palm Gorge. The tracks were fairly easy to follow. The walk up the ridge was incredible, had some of the best views of the range. Probably wouldn't come back down via Palm Gorge again, I'm too much of a klutz and the palm frond/chunky loose rock combo for the duration of the descent didn't work in my favour. The greenery of the gorge was stunning though. Whatever way you head, I'd recommend a pair of solid grippy shoes. Absolutely will return here.
Gap Creek Falls (Main Range National Park)

Did this on a rainy afternoon. The rainforest was beautiful, but there were many, many leeches. Bring fire and salt and avoid stopping too much along the way (which is no small feat, mind you - you're walking straight back uphill). Still would return, the surrounds are stunning.
Sandstone Overhang (Ravensbourne National Park)

Leeches and ticks abound.
