awesome hike. camped two nights and had a great time. highly recommend. didn't see any snakes though!

Kings Park is always beautiful. Finding path names is a little difficult, they are also not included on KP maps. For some reason the app sent us the wrong way so we ended our last leg of the walk quite differently to the listed walk. A note on this to find Boomerang path is to walk below (around) the kids playground.
look for parking Park Ave, Forrest Drive.

This is a great walking trail for people of all fitness levels as well as it offers beautiful views of Brisbane and the Brisbane River.

This walk is so far the best I went to..really enjoyed the nature and the bush !!

Beautiful easy little trail to do in the peak of winter! In summer you don't even realise you are following a lovely river. in winter you hear the water running!

Easy track - can’t wait till whole section is open again! Is worth going to Warringa Pool especially in summer

Track was hard to find at times. There are some painted arrows which help. If in doubt, check the path doesn't continue on the other side of the creeks.

Very touristy, not for us.

Admittedly we were there on a weekend, Saturday. Still.

Lots of people walking off the path and breaking every rule for a Kodak moment. Yuk.

The falls itself was nice. As usual falls are better after a bit of rain.

You enter from the top but you can also choose to walk to the bottom of the falls.

Awesome trail, beautiful scenery, lovely swimming holes.

Walked a few k’s along this track in early August 2018 - within a few hundred meters from leaving lane cove river park at lady game drive you could be anywhere yet so close to sydney - it’s a great walk - although the wattle have been fooled into flowering early this year with all the dry warm weather .

Walked the first few kilometres of this last summer- the memorable thing wasn’t the walk but the swarming sounds of millions of cicadas - literally could not hear ourselves think over it. Amazing experience and the walk is beautiful with clear waters and mangroves opposite and loads of bird life .

Great easy-ish track. Couple of steep bits that can be slippery in wet weather but they are not too difficult. Kids could do this track but keep your eye on them so they don’t fall down a mineshaft.

Nice and easy walk with some quick stops at a few small waterfalls. The track was damp and muddy from last night’s rainfall but still manageable. Very enjoyable walk to end a great day of hiking.

If you love stairs this is the walk for you - about 3700 in a round trip up and down Perry's Track. Honestly, I was cursing Perry and his stairs the whole way down but the views from the lookouts and of Cox's River at the bottom make it worthwhile. The sign says it's a six hour return trip but it took about two all up, or if you're up for an overnight trip there is a good camping spot at the bottom.

Nice trail! Doesn’t take full 3 hours

Trail itself is nothing special, but great views

This is a beautiful walk located not far from Lorne on the surf coast. Winter and autumn is the best time to see the falls as they can dry up in summer.
From Phantom Falls you can continue to walk via The canyon to Sheoak picnic area. More detailed maps available from the Lorne Visitors centre.

Great track especially for a solo trecker. Easily done over two days but more enjoyable over three.

Beautiful all the way along and some challenging segments to make it a great experience!

Nice hike to get a little taste of the Daintree

Started at Cowan. Nice walk to start with then it gets steep and the uphills begin. Amazing challenge. The last hour of it dragged on for a bit till u get to the downhill part that wakes u up. Easy walk to the station afterwards.
Sings are everywhere so u can’t get lost. Overall i loved this walk. Took us just under 4 hours . We stopped for pics .

Goes right by the river, easy, pleasant

Check your weather forecast before doing this trail! Very important because you'll be scaling rocks along the river and you don't want to be stuck. Some parts of the trail are quite challenging with big rocks to scale. Good grip footwear is essential. Very fun when it ends with the waterhole for a nice cool dip after your 3+ hours of hiking!

Easy hike through bushland and rocky escarpment. Gorgeous views

Great easy walk, paths are well kept! Has other hiking options, if you enjoy testing yourself head up to the lookout
