Araucaria Track

This walk begins off downhill, soon there are some views of the reservoir then the track begins to wind its way along the edge of the reservoir keep an eye out for different water birds.

I would advise taking you camera equipment as well as a pair of binoculars for some good bird watching. After approx 1.7km you come to a Y junction go straight ahead and some more views of the Enoggera weir come into sight. There seems to be alot of bellbirds and a few whipbirds around here.

From here the track winds into some bush some small reminent of rainforest. And from here it gets a bit "are we there, yet" but keep on going up and over the ridge and back down again and you rejoin back at the Y junction.

Now the return route can be a little problem if you leave it late to do this walk because on your return from the Y junction. You will meet alot of people along the way.

Some signs have been errected "brown snakes" in the area. So watch your step when walking around the exposed hot ridge areas.

Also this track can be combined with the Corymbia Circuit to add a bit of distance for you walk.
