A moderate level trail that leads you into a world of large swamp box and blue gums, and if you are lucky enough, you may even see a shy lace monitor. Cool down as you cross Six Mile Creek and inspect a number of revegetation areas Council has been working to restore.

Getting there

Turn East onto Redbank Plains Rd from the Cunningham Hwy. Turn right onto School Rd and drive South until you reach the Paperbark Flats Picnic Area. The final part of the road is unsealed but in very good condition. Ignore the horse float parking area on your left and proceed to the Paperbark Flats Picnic Area carpark. Weekends can get quite busy so you may have to park in the horse float parking area, if so park in the centre so horse floats can park near the fence on the sides.

It was a love walk with a bit of scrambling around rocks. Wear your sunscreen, no cover at the top and parts of the trail.
