Getting there:

Exit the Pacific Highway (Junction 24). Follow the signs to the Koala Centre (which is in the park) onto Chatswood Road south of Springwood. Follow Chatswood Road turning left on Daisy Hill Road at the roundabout. The road eventually enters the park. Use the first carpark on the right hand side or drop down to the many car parks to the left (they have toilet facilities here).

These maps are also available at the Koala Centre.

Route/Trail notes:

Lower area very well signed and mapped, just keep following the arrows and signs named "Buhot Creek". Top end not so.




Nice walk for beginners, mostly shady. The signs could be more clear towards the end of the track.

We ride along the track, not too hard.

Nice easy walk, but terrible signposting for directions with many intersecting trails. Would use a maps app for convenience (I used maps.me and would highly recommend).

A little unexciting and not that well signposted, but conveniently close to Brisbane and nice and flat for an easy walk

What a downpour this arvo. Had the trail to myself on a Saturday arvo. Good occasion to test my rain gear. Thumbs up to council/NP office. New and clear signage.

Saw two kookaburras and Red tailed black cockatoos. Some parts a little unclear to navigate but we managed by backtracking. Really enjoyed walking around the quarry lake, it'd be a great swimming spot in summer.

Kids and I do this trail regularly. My Fitbit records it as just under 8.5 klms. We walk briskly and jog the downhills and can do this con around an hour. Walking only will be about 1.5 hrs fast paced. Quite enjoyable with great scenery. On occasions I have done it twice consecutively for 17klms.

Really enjoyed this walk even though parts were crowded. Used the GPX map supplied, no issues with following it. Well worth it.

Enjoyable walk through Daisy Hill. Thought we were following the map so well until we were suddenly way off course. Oh well, still enjoyed the walk even if signage around the Neville Laurie Reserve was where we went wrong.

Well signed for the most part but we did miss the last turn off and ended up walking the last couple of kms on the quarry road which was really boring. Ended up being 10.3km with the spotted gum circuit included. Saw some kookaburras, a family of tawny frogmouths & a wallaby.

Great to have such a location close to Brisbane city. Native plants and wildlife - saw a wallaby, Tawny Frogmouths, Laughing Kookaburras, White-throated Treekeeper, Buff-rumped Thornbill, Fan-tailed Cuckoo, Glossy Black-cockatoo, Gray Butcherbird, Grey Fantails and many Noisy Minors.

Walked part of this track following the Quarry Rd trail from Forde Rd in Neville Lawrie Reserve out to the old quarry. Nice walk. Lots of grass trees and varied birdlife. Busy park shared with mountain bikers so keep an eye out. Dog friendly too, watch for land mines!

This is the best walk in Daisy Hill. Easy and one of our favourite training circuits. Very popular and lots of bikes. Stick to your left and you will have no problems.

Looped with Spotted Gum - 13 km walk

Matthew on 12 Jan, 2019

Nice day for a walk. Confusing directions about the halfway mark so we walked an extra km. This walk is longer than described at about 12km.
Saw two Lace Monitors and the prettiest little Red Backed Fairy Wren.
Next time will def bring bathers for a swim!

Jen on 6 Jan, 2019

lovely walk. shady bits along most of the track. saw 2 lace monitors, back end of a blue tongue lizard, lots of kookaburras and a pretty flowering plant of unknown identity. some people were swimming in the quarry.
