It depends on what you are looking for in a walk. As I see it they are all uniquely different so would be hard to compare.

Probably lots of waterfalls and creeks at the moment. I imagine it is all looking pretty good now and would not matter which one you chose.

Mrs Bravo and I have visited Boonoo Boonoo (pronounced Bunna Bunoo)and Bald Rock. Boonoo Boonoo is a walk to a series of rock polls. Bald Rock is a climb up a bald rock. Take the long way up through the bush and the quick way down the face of the rock. There are spectacular views from the top. Both worth the effort of visiting. :?#

We went to the last 3. Girraween was excellent. Many good walks and kangaroos were a plenty.

Bald Rock was also impressive. We walked up the rock rather than around and down. very steep climb.

Boonoo Boonoo had a nice waterfall and some rock pools but they looked a bit dirty for swimming although some people were doing so.

The wineries and fruit farms nearby are good.

Highly recommended.
