Getting there

The trail head for the Frilled Neck Lizard Circuit can be found at the intersection of Wild Iris Terrace and Geraldton Street in Springfield Lakes, QLD.  The only parking is along the curb of the street.  The sign post for the trail head is rather small as it is just a simple pole about 1 meter high with the name of the trail on it.


Unknown.  Have not been able to find any maps of the area through the Ipswich Council website as of yet.  The trail is clearly marked, with fairly new signage by the Ipswich Council.

Route/Trail notes

The walk is a quiet, short hike through the neighborhood bush.  Most of the trail is fairly easy except for a few parts that have been washed out by previous rain storms.  The track is easily distinguishable and there are a few sign posts along the way.  The trail is about 1 meter wide and varies between hard dirt and soft sand.  The trail connects to the Ironbark Track about halfway through for about 500 meters before turning back towards the trail head.

GPS Tracks


Started from Wildflower Drive trail head. Take care at first intersection. The sign might tempt you to go to the right-the track leads to the suburb again.

I couldn't find the Springfield lakes entrance to the Ironbark trail so we started from the Frilled Neck Lizard Circuit and walked the longer portion of the Ironbark trail and back to finish the circuit. The Ironbark circuit particularly is quite sandy so this would not be pleasant when wet but it is a lovely walk in the forest.

Fun, easy walk.
Lots of really soft, sandy soil underfoot.
We took the kids, they enjoyed it.

We saw a tree snake on a log.
