Redwood National Park

Toowoomba

Nice walk around the range at the base of Toowoomba. Not overly steep at any point but there is the occasional log to dodge.

Getting there

From Toowoomba head down the range (going out james st towards brisbane) and the entrance to park is 3/4 down the range just after the 100 speed sign. There is a woodden board that says redwood park but you have to be looking for it.

Route/Trail notes

Take water as it can get quite hot. The trail is a loop and at one stage follows a fire break. the rise is fairly gradual as you trek back up the range towards Toowoomba. There are a few different routes through the area and they are all signed at the park entrance.

NO CAMPING.

There seem to be two maps with very different routes (one attached). It was very dry, no waterfalls on our chosen day. A lot of weeds stifling the native vegetation, but the local conservation groups are putting a lot of work into controlling it. Trails are road-width and slashed in many places. Very steep up and down in sections. We intended to walk counterclockwise following Redwood Forest Track returning via Fern Tree Gully track. Instead through some confusion with the maps we actually walked through Fern Tree Gully first! So we then decided to walk to the top completing the Redwood Forest Track and returning via Redwood Bridal Trail & Eagle’s nest trail. Total about 6.5km for us with little feet managing the whole walk very well.

This is a regular for me as I use it for a training walk for the Kokoda Challenge I compete in every year. When you get to the top you can cross the road and head down into Jubilee Park which is also full of well marked walking tracks. This is also the old site of the Men's Depression camp in the 1930's. The site is hidden well in this park.

Went clockwise from the bottom carpark, explored some of the creek areas and others while geocaching. Steeper than I expected but then I didn't realise it is on the side of the range, hahaha. I enjoyed the walk though!

If you want to do a study on weeds, this is your spot, very overgrown, pivot everywhere, however this time of the year there are amazing butterflies, and plenty of birds to watch. Early in the morning brings the snakes and monitors so be on the look out
