Great trail run. Plenty of options to make it a longer run by taking some of the offshoot loops (unsigned but shown on the maps on the App), or going further north and linking up with channel 7 and Simpson falls.

Great trail run - except I would skip the northern road section. You can loop back around from Barnett Road over the hill to Paton Road to avoid the road sections

Very good trip

I love this trail for the view.

Beautiful walk on a surprisingly wet day. astounding views along the way. Not even the constant showers could ruin the hike. i think it just made it more beautiful and scenic. some part we were even walking in the clouds, magic!

Great trail, lots to see. Feels like you are miles away but easy to access

Highly recommended trial, well maintained and easy to walk

Very nice trail. I did it three times during my trip in Australia. It is impossible to get lost since you follow a path all long, the view is amazing. The trail is really accessible and not so difficult since it is not too steep! Would defend recommend ! Also, search for the fairy pools a hidden spot where to can swim :)

love this place

THE best way to see Fraser Island hands down. I'd been to Fraser by 4x4 previously but the lakes were overcrowded and not that much fun. In the 5 days we hiked the Great Walk, every afternoon we had a lake to ourselves because the walk took you to parts of the lake that were inaccessible by vehicles. We went in April. The trail is pretty flat most of the way with not many hills.

Great for little legs, plenty to keep them interested. They even loved the snake!

no shade

Stunning view, trail a lot harder than expected. Not a long hike, but gets very steep and slippery in the dust. Would not recommend doing in the heat as very exposed, had to stop a few times for a breather.

I've run all through this state Forrest and it can be very very hilly ,straight up no switch backs and very rocky .

But for those that like a challenge this certainly will whole state Forrest will test you.

Definitely a challenging climb in places. Can get quite hot due to some exposed sections, as everyone has stated take plenty of water.

The view is something else

Very undulating and some sections quite steep 'toblerone' style.
I didn't really enjoy the gravel/bluestone surface underfoot all the way round which would probably be better for a bike (if which there were a few out). Also not much of a walk if you're after glorious views.
Good 4.5hr workout nonetheless - and of course take plenty of water as there's nothing on the route.

An easy to follow, enjoyable walk. The multi user trail has quite a bit of shade but be aware that it can get extremely hot in the area so take plenty of water with you. It’s a walk best completed before 9am in the warmer months.

I recommend taking the ridge track out and the multi-user trail on the way back. The walk itself takes less than 90 minutes when walked at a comfortable pace.

The ridge track does involve a bit of a scramble down from the ridge at the end but it is much easier than it first appears. Nice views of Brisbane City and surrounding bush from the ridge track, no views on the multi user track but plenty of birdsong and noise from cicadas and a mostly downhill soft sandy surface to walk on for the way back.

Nice hike for an aerobic workout only takes about 2 hours return if you're in fit condition.

awesome, loads of steps but the fact you can swim later is brilliant

Do make sure you take water.

Unfortunately my girlfriend and I weren’t able to get to the trail head until 1500, and so we decided to hike just to Blue Gum campground, eat, and turn around. There are some great views of the lake and even in the heat of the afternoon, there was plenty of breeze. The trail is very well defined, of what we walked of it, with visible markers at intersections with other trails.

There’s also a newly cut path which runs along the bank of the lake and reconnect to the trail along a firebreak about an hour into the hike. The views are nice but this trail is cut at quite an angle. Personally I wouldn’t bother with this.

Blue Gum campground is quite spacious, with a portable toilet and reasonable proximity to the lake. I wouldn’t mind doing an overnighter there.

In all I enjoyed the hike and am very much looking to doing the full loop when we can get there in the AM. Made it back to the car just as the sun set.
