After we leave our meeting spot we follow the caves circuit as it winds up through open eucalypt forest and passing through the Kweebani Caves, think back to a time when they sheltered the original inhabitants of this area - the Yugambeh Aboriginal kinship group and enjoy the change as the eucalyptus give way to rainforest tree species.
Beyond the caves you will see a seat commemorating Robert Collins who fought to protect this landscape for the future and pause for a minute to take in the brilliant views down the Coomera Valley, and across the Darlington Range and rhyolite cliff line. As you look along the cliff line see if you can spot what is possibly the largest intact stand of hoop pine in Australia.

From here we will climb to the summit of Mount Roberts through rainforests of immense red cedars and other trees. We will then detour to Bellbird Lookout before returning to the start for morning tea. (This section is 8.5kms)

After morning tea those who are ready to go again can join us with a return walk down to Gwongoorool Pool (5km return)

Ride, Sip & Savour Ocean View QLD

I hadn't ridden for around 20 years but had missed horse riding greatly as it was a passion of my younger self. The 5 hour ride was great as it gives you time to get into the groove or riding and build your confidence back up. By the end of the ride we were trotting And cantering. Slickers staff were wonderful and gave each of us riders the time to choose when we felt confident to go at faster pace. It was such a great day out, wonderful views and scenery and lunch at Oceanview winery was delicious. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Gheerulla Falls via Sam Kelly Rd Mapleton National Park QLD

Sun 23rd May 2021 | Chris J

Gheerulla Falls is a hike that I have been wanting to do for a while now. The AW Leaders, Caron & Kat are very experienced hikers and have a knack for making everyone feel comfortable from the outset. The track followed a creek for a lot of the way and the falls were actually falling. There is a very large swimming hole at the bottom of the falls but it was a cool day, so no one went for a swim. Thanks AW. All in all an exceptional day.
