Mount Tempest Lookout, Moreton Island National Park

Moreton Bay And Islands, Redland City Area
Moreton Island is the most natural of the large sand islands located in Moreton Bay's sheltered waters. At 285 metres high, Mount Tempest is the highest stabilised sand dune in the world. The walk to the top of Mount Tempest is a memorable one, with sweeping views of Moreton Bay and the island's length a spectacular experience. Enjoy the wildflowers in spring and look for migrating humpback whales in late winter and spring. It is a steep climb with many steps, and can be challenging, but the 360-degree view is worth every step. This walk is best done in the cooler part of the day or in winter. Take plenty of water.

Country Valleys, Brisbane Area

Palm Creek Circuit

Ravensbourne, Toowoomba Area
The Palm Creek circuit at Ravensbourne National Park leaves the Buaraba Creek track and crosses Palm Creek-named after the piccabeen palms (Archontophoenix cunninghamiana) covering its steep banks. Look in the canopy for epiphytes growing on taller trees and birds feasting on palm tree fruits. A short side track leads along a eucalypt forest ridge to a small sandstone overhang.

Dr Roberts Waterhole Track

Ballandean, Southern Downs Area
The gently sloping track to Dr Roberts Waterhole in Girraween National Park starts from Dr Roberts carpark, four kilometres east of the information centre. Gaze at reflections in the still waters of Bald Rock Creek; or admire wildflowers including ground orchids, banksias, conesticks, geebungs and crinkle bushes prominent in spring, or the many colourful bird species living in among them.

Mount Kiangarow Track

Bunya Mountains, South Burnett Area
The Mt Kiangarow track leads to the summit the Bunya Mountains' highest peak. The track climbs gradually, winding around the mountain and leads to an avenue of grasstrees and a natural lookout giving views over the park and to the horizon. This walk is ideal for watching the sun set over the plains below; remember to take a torch for the return trip back to your car or camp.

Castle Rock Track

Ballandean, Southern Downs Area
Castle Rock gives breathtaking panoramic views over Girraween National Park and is well worth the walk. The track varies from gentle to moderate gradients until the steep climb over exposed granite rocks to the summit. Black cypress, stringybarks and orange gums grow on the rocky ridges and woodlands while yellow box and brown gums provide shade and good birdwatching. Warning: the summit has steep cliffs and potentially slippery surfaces. Keep to the track and supervise children closely.

The Pyramid Track

Ballandean, Southern Downs Area
Climb to the summit of The Pyramid to see Balancing Rock and magnificent views over the Second Pyramid and Girraween National Park. From the Bald Rock Creek day-use area, cross the creek and weave steadily uphill through eucalypt forests, past rocky outcrops and wetlands to the base of this massive granite dome. A good level of fitness is required to make the climb up The Pyramid as the ascent of the exposed rock face is steep and may be tiring. Take your time to rest and enjoy the views. Warning: the summit has steep cliffs and potentially slippery surfaces. Keep to the track and supervise children closely. There is no walking track to the second Pyramid and considerable rock climbing experience is necessary to scale it.
