Lovely stroll very early in the morning before the heat. Lots of Kangaroos and birds. Track is easy to follow.

I really enjoyed this walk! Easy, not too long, quiet, by the river, lots of flora and fauna to enjoy. I loved that I got to see the Pheasant Coucal!

Nice easy walk to the dog park and back to the other end.

A great little track for younger folks. Enough twists, hills and bridges to keep their interest when conversation about whether or not there are crocodiles in the Brisbane River takes a pause.

Lovely walk overlooking the Brisbane River. The path is very well maintained. We thought it was shorter than it said though - about 1.7km. It took about 25 minutes.

Didn't see any coucals but there were a few decent views of the Brisbane River along the way.
