Nice easy walk with th eoption of a paved path if your pushing a pram along. Not much diversity to speak of though

Very easy walk. Used to use it as a daily trek.

It's hard to know exactly how far you go because there are so many different side trails but a really good walk (lots of ups & downs) :)

We last did Toohey Forest Apr5, a group of 10 (I think), & carpark was full up. No Toilets here.

I discovered this walk online at Brisbane City Council website when I was looking for a local park with BBQ's.

Start from the Toohey Forest and go along Toohey Ridge track until you reach the SE freeway then walk along side the freeway briefly downhill towards a tunnel. Which is part of the Inter Campus Link track.

Continue along this track under the M1 highway and up the hill. You will reach Messines Ridge Road (hope i got the spelling correct) turn right towards Circular Drive round-a-bout go straight ahead (left) and walk along the pathway and or side of the road where safe.

Keep walking past the small cooling towers and follow the track left to Mt Gravatt (mountain).

Keep following the signs to Mt Gravatt Lookout. Amazing views of Brisbane CBD skyline from here. and other areas

This is a great spot for lunch.


Then return same way. Have fun.
