Banksia Track

Karawatha Forest

True to its name this track features a variety of banksia species. Visit in autumn when the banksias are in bloom. The track begins in Frog Hollow where wet heath provides rich habitat for 23 species of frog that call Karawatha Forest home then climbs through eucalypt forest to the crest of the hill and the sandstone boulders of Poet’s Rock. This track connects with the Dianella, Wallum and Dentata tracks for a longer walking experience.

Rode our bikes around this in conjunction with the Rocks Circuit. Nice bit of bushland close to Brisbane.

Nice little stroll on the various tracks. As with most open eucalypt, best done in the cooler months or very early in the morning.
