Starting from the car park off Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Burleigh Head National Park, visiting a couple of beaches and lookouts along the way. Prepared to be blown away by the amazing views over the headland and the Coral Sea, with a chance of seeing a gorgeous whale breach through the water. You’ll be passing by Echo Beach and other swimming areas as you hike on the Oceanview Track, so pack your swimmers and enjoy the lovely waters of Coral Sea. Kookaburras, king parrots and noisy pittas are among the bird species you can spot in the area along with the fellow brushturkeys of Australia. Savor the views and be patient as you observe the waters from the Tumgun and Jebbribillum lookouts to increase your chance of seeing a humpback in the air. There is a restaurant nearby for you to refuel your energy, grab something you can consume at the lookout(without littering ofc) to help you spend time there. The undulating wide tracks are perfectly suitable for small children as well, so don’t hesitate to bring your whole family for a lovely coastal trip together. Try to avoid peak hours and weekends as the track is quite popular amongst runner groups and tourists. Remember to keep an eye out for snakes along the track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Tallanbana Picnic Area Car Park, Springbrook, this circuit walk visits more than 8 waterfalls and various lookouts via the Warren Circuit and Twin Falls Circuit tracks. As you’re hiking through the rainforest, expect to be dazzled by the amazing views of waterfalls again and again. You’ll even be able to go through some of them, so bring a raincoat if you don’t want to get wet. You can also wear a swimsuit inside as there are lots of spots to swim in. Don’t worry, you can always tell people it’s a designer look. The woodland is filled with wildlife, such as wallabies, marsupials and various bird species for you to observe. Remember that you can stop and have a nice picnic at ‘Meeting of the Waters’, where two creeks meet and create a beautiful scenery. If you’re doing a night hike, turn off your headlight to enjoy the magical view of the glowworms. But try not to direct the light to them as it’s disorienting and harmful. Keep your distance from the snakes and lizards that come out(generally in summer) to get some sun. Pack well, wear sturdy and grippy shoes and come early to enjoy the walk better. Schedule the walk after some decent rainfall to see the waterfalls at their best.

Walk
5 h 30 min to 8 h 30 min

Starting from the car park at the end of Binna Burra Road, QLD, this walk takes you on a circuit visiting multiple waterfalls and lookouts, including Coomera and Joalah(meaning Haunt of the Lyrebird). Follow the strong Coomera River as you enjoy the lovely cascades and waterfalls making your way up the gorge. Try to spot some ray-finned fishes in the water as there are 22 different species present in Lamington National. This area is also part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, and features a dense subtropical rainforest along with some interesting fungi. As the constant birdsong suggests, it can be fruitful to birdwatch on this track. 246 species of birds reside in the park including the near threatened black-breasted button-quail. Don’t forget to bring swimmers and a towel to cool off in the swimming holes. The currents are strong so do not try to swim in dangerous areas. There are plenty of spots to sit down and have a little picnic whilst enjoying the refreshing ambience around the falls. Grippy footwear will come in handy on the slippery parts of the hike. Keep in mind that the creek crossings can flood after/during heavy rain and become dangerous, so check the forecast and water level beforehand to avoid unpleasant outcomes.
