Venman Bushland National Park


This walks is just through bushland. Can be a bit slippery after rain. Three stepping stone crossings in the wet - can be a bit slippy.

Why not drop in to the Nursey/Cafe afterwards and give Shadow a corner of your pumkin scone.

Route/Trail notes

Easy walk with a few hills. We went anti-clockwise - prettiest part of the walk is first and you are warmed up for the hills.

Very well cared for picnic bbq site at the start - maybe we'll bring the makings of a cooked breakfast next time.

There is a lagoon near the link to Neville Lawrie Reserve. Simply follow the side track along the fenceline staying within Venman Bushland National Park. It will turn a corner and descend to the lagoon within 100m. Well worth the side trip.



No Cost.


We started around 3:30 - no need for a hat - and it took around 90 minutes. Quite a few wallabies - plenty of spider webs across the trail at head height :-)

Excellent for spotting wallabies, however I personally find the trail pleasant but slightly samey. Well worth doing but I more frequently choose to walk next door in Daisy Hill/Neville Lawrie Reserve instead.

This was a lovely walk, we did it in just under 2 hours. We did this in reverse, was good getting started with the hills. Keep an eye out for the lovely moss covered trees, and take time to soak up the beauty. Was a fairly easy walk, would do it again!

I like to link the trails from Daisy Hill up with the Venman trail for a longer walk

Nice, open field in the middle is suprising. It could use better signage I wanted to do the Tingalpa circuit (1.5hr) because it was starting the get dark but ended up making a wrong turn and doing the Venman (4hrs). Anyway it was still good :-)

A good trail so close to the city and also connects to Daisy Hill coordinated bushland area.
