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 car park at the end of Dapsang Drive, Tamborine Mountain, this walk takes you on a circuit in the tropical rainforests of the Tamborine National Park, crossing Cedar Creek multiple times and visiting Curtis Falls with a side trip. The trip separates you from the city as soon as you dive into the dense eucalypt rainforest, filled with birdsong. Speaking of birds, the distinct call of the Albert’s Lyrebird which the Aboriginal people called ‘Joalah’ (haunt of the lyrebird) can be heard if you listen carefully. The walk is shaded the whole way, making you feel even more remote, like in a terrarium. The lovely little waterfall named Curtis Falls is well worth the side trip, sitting beautifully amidst fern and rocks covered in moss. You can even see some water dragons nearby if you’re lucky. Although you can't take a shower under the waterfall, you can swim in the waterholes up north. Keep in mind that the track might require small amounts of rock scrambling, or climbing over a fallen tree. Good trekking shoes may come in handy, as the track is rocky, muddy and slippery after rainfall. Come early to avoid the crowd and minimize the noise coming from 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.
