Leader - Paul

2012-02-11 Purlingbrook Falls PlusNine Club members (Paul, John, Peter & Sara, Sue, Colin, Julie, Joy, Elizabeth) were pleased to welcome and share the day with two new walkers (Craig & Lori).

On arrival at Gwongorella Car Park the walkers set off for Purlingbrook lookout.  Arriving at the top of the falls, we found Park Rangers had closed part of the Circuit due to landslides. We took the Western track which includes steps down to the base of Purlingbrook Falls then continued on to the Tanninaba Falls. The Falls were spectacular after the heavy rain of the last two weeks. The weather was on our side and this made for a great walk.

We then walked to the Waringa pool, where we had our morning coffee before returning by the same track, up the steps to the car park, where we stopped for lunch under a covered picnic area.

Being midday we decided we could do the Twin Falls Circuit. This 4 km circuit is one of the most scenic walks in the Springbrook National Park with the twin falls cascading water at an impressive rate.  We started this walk at the top of Twin Falls and continued on to the base of the falls then on to Blackfellows falls where the track takes you between the cliff face and the cascading water. From there it was a steady climb to the Canyon Lookout, through open forest and views to the Pinnacles.

We arrived back at the Car Park, where we stopped for coffee and a post walk discussion. All shared the same thoughts that the combined walks were spectacular making it one of the best 11km walks for the Tamborine Club - Paul

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
