Starting from Spicers Gap Road, Swanfels, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount Mathieson and through the Spicers Gap, optionally visiting the Governors Chair lookout along the way. Get ready to embark on a truly beautiful journey in the diverse woodland of Main Range NP. From vast grasslands to picturesque rock faces, this track is full of exceptional views of nature. Spicers Gap used to be the main route over the Great Dividing Range in this area. In fact, the early governors of Queensland used to rest on the aforementioned Governors Chair along their trip. You’ll find several informational signposts about the history of the area, so delve into those if you want to learn more about those times. Lots of different bird species reside in the national park, so there’s a good chance you’ll be accompanied by birdsong throughout your hike. The Pioneer picnic area near the start can make a great spot for a well-earned rest and feast afterwards. A little bit of rock scrambling involved. Keep an eye out for snakes along the track. Whilst driving up to the starting point, approach from the east if you don’t have a 4WD vehicle as the western approach requires lots of traction and power. 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 car park on Cunningham Highway(National Highway 15), Tregony, this walk takes you to the Bare Rock Lookout and back, visiting the Mount Cordeaux Lookout along the way. As you’re climbing up through the subtropical eucalypt rainforest, observe the interchanging flora and environment while listening to the tunes of lyrebirds. Expect to see captivating views over the Tarome countryside and beyond from the Mount Cordeaux Lookout. As you’re taking in the views, enjoy a snack or a coffee to refill your energy for the Bare Rock climb. The ridgeline between Cordeaux and Bare Rock can make you feel like you're in Middle-earth, on your way to destroy the ring. Bare Rock welcomes you with rewarding views over Lake Moogerah and Brisbane, along with surreal views of the Scenic Rim. Check the forecast beforehand to make sure you’re not there on a foggy day, thus miss all the views. The viewpoints can be very windy, so don’t forget to wear layers of clothing. Schedule the walk real early on a weekend to avoid traffic and see the sun rise. A weekday may be quieter, but that means you’ll need to deal with the noise coming from trucks air braking down the road. 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.
