The Hinterland is nothing if not inclusive – it features a wide range of walks and nature trails for all abilities, tastes and ages. There are wheelchair and pushchair-accessible tracks, as well as easy ones for walkers new and old. Here are some of the best.
Glasshouse Mountains Lookout Track
At just 0.8km in length, but with ALL the views, this is the ideal track for young families. The walk has free barbecue sites at the end, so walkers can refuel after this epic trek!
Mount Beerburrum Track
This 1.4km track gives walkers some amazing views they walk along and they can also climb a fire-tower.
Mount Ngungun Summit Track
This circular, 2.8km trail gives walkers gorgeous 360-degree views from the top of the mountain.
Mount Tibrogargen Circuit
Slightly longer at 3.2km, but nice and flat, this easy walk takes visitors round the base of the mountain.
This walk is joined to the Mount Tibrogargen track and at 6km, it takes walkers through wood and heathland where they can feast their eyes on views from the Jack Ferris lookout point on Trachyte Ridge.
Mapleton Falls National Park
This 1.3km walk winds through some eucalyptus trees and walkers can listen out for the Wompoo fruit dove.
Conondale National Park
Booloumba Falls Walk
At 24km, this is an all-dayer, but it has rockpools for walkers to dip into, as well as waterfalls and rainforest sections, so it’s easily doable!
Mount Allen Fire Tower Walk
Featuring some uphill lengths, this 11km walk is for the more able walkers, who will just love the views from the top.
Artist’s Cascades Walk
This circular 10km walk leads through lots of different environments and walkers can take time out to enjoy a picnic.
Kondalilla National Park
At just 1.7km and under lots of eucalyptus trees, this walk is great if you just had a big outdoor lunch.
Kondalilla Falls Circuit
This challenging 4.7km walk features a lot of steps, so it’s not suitable for everyone. Anyone going on the walk will get views of Kondalilla Falls as well as lots of shade.
Obi Obi Boardwalk
A nice shady 1km walk which is wheelchair accessible; it has the advantage of leading ramblers straight into Maleny.
