Full Itinerary

Particularly lovely when the sun is high and the breeze gentle, the CREEC’s forest walks make day trips from Brisbane worth it, offering up an experience of pleasant discovery.

These self-guided walks, which are both easy on the feet and pleasant to the eyes, are available to those wishing to while away an hour appreciating and learning about our regional ecosystem.

Pick up a brochure at the CREEC’s centre to decide between the 400m or 1.5km track and see if you can identify all the native flora and fauna. Along the way you’ll encounter a purpose-built frog pond, bats, fig trees, macadamia trees, a fire tower, a windmill, a sensory garden and stingless bees, and if you keep your eyes peeled you might even spot a koala, or platypus.

You also have the option to book guided walks if you’re keen to learn more about our unique natural environment, or sign up for specialised activity walks where even owls can be held, koala habitats planted and sausage sizzles enjoyed.
