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.

Nice simple walk. A few seats around. Spotted a red belly black snake and some sort of marsupial mouse or bandicoot. Delicious scones at cafe after.

I took longer than the recommended time as I was taking photos and enjoying the wild life. I saw a huge lace monitor!

Too busy for my taste even on a Friday morning. Perhaps too close to the city.

A delightful easy 5-6km walk from the car park. Lots of beautiful birds to photograph along the way.
Busy on a Sunday

A lovely walk - easy to navigate, good clear paths and well signed. Heaps of bell birds, whip birds, scarlet honeyeaters, white naped honeyeaters and superb fairy wrens. Loved it but I would not recommend this for people with wheelchairs/mobility aids due to some stairs and plenty of exposed tree roots and rocks. Just over 5km.

This was my first time t the reservoir so it was good to see what the space offers. The walk was easy with steps, tree roots and rocks/stones on the track. Birdlife: Superb Fairywren, Australian King Parrot, Scarlet Honeyeaters and White-naped Honeyeaters to name a few.

Great trail and an easy drive from Brisbane. Recommend doing in the afternoon as you will be in the shade.

Very pretty area. This walk is completely flat and paved most of the way. Lots of birds, lizards, turtles. Great walk for kids. Can go for a swim afterwards too.

Quite a beautiful little place. Lots of bird life e.g blue billed wood ducks, red backed fairy wrens, whip birds, bell birds, water hens, Rufus fan tails, zebra finches and other birds I couldn't identify. Little guys took two hours to walk the track.

Nice walk along the lake. Could be very hot during the summer. Can swim and picnic

Nice and relatively easy walk .

Cheryl on 24 Nov, 2017

This is a really simple walk. I used this to introduce my daughter to bushwalking (at 5 years old we did it in around 50mins).

Keep an eye out for turtles 🐢 about 500-750m into the walk on the edges.

Andrew on Nov, 2017
