Gwongoorool Pool walk

My parents, their friend and I went to Lamington National Park today to do some bushwalking. Most of the walking trails in South-East Queensland are currently closed due to the effects of the recent storms, but the half-day walks in the Binna Burra section were open today. So we linked some together. I’ll share them as three separate posts.

We started with the Gwongoorool Pool walking track. The track wound its way down from the visitor centre to a swimming hole in the Coomera River. Along the way, we passed under volcanic ash cliffs and waterfalls.

The walk down to the pool was 3km downhill and returned by climbing back up the same trail. That is, the whole 3km walk out of the creek is uphill.

Here’s some photos and a video of the trail:
