We were very pleasantly surprised at how quickly the First Edition of Family Bushwalks in South East Queensland sold out its initial print run of 2,500 copies. Following a question from a reader “Isn’t Toowoomba in SEQ?” we added a comprehensive Toowoomba Region chapter and beefed up the Somerset Region chapter for the Second Edition which is now available in shops and online at www.familybushwalks.com.au
This is something special – the back way into Springbrook from the end of Tallebudgera Creek Road. The route has recently been ratified, modified and variously signed by Gold Coast City Council.
I walked the track on 3rd November 2016. It’s tough – 750m climb over 5km.
The landowner at the top welcomes walkers who need to traverse their land BUT ONLY if you get and carry a free permit from www.thecreamtrack.com.au
Here is a relatively new and little known but fully signed and maintained walk on one of the Southern Moreton Bay islands.
Thanks to Mike for his help with this – the trail is being developed by the locals and the last stretch along the creek to the falls is unformed.
A recent development connecting Maleny in the Sunshine Coast almost as far as Gardners Falls – when the bridge is built.
Glen Rock State Forest has a little-used bushwalk and also a cycling / horse-riding trail along the creek to the Top Yards.
