Historical general store in Brookfield
Brookfield General Store is a rustic and quirky café in Brookfield offering breakfast, lunches and dinners. A favourite place for push bike riders, hikers and weekenders to stop for fresh coffee and delicious meals.
The General Store was built in 1874 as the school teacher's residence. In 1932, the Trustee of the Hall bought it and moved the building to where it is now and it became the Brookfield Store.
The Brookfield General Store is run now by Christian and Tiffany Hedberg. Enjoy a cup of fresh brew coffee anytime during the day.
Brookfield General Store has a variety of grocery items on the shelves. From general eggs and bread to pasta and sauces. On the shelves, there is the storyline of the General Store and all the Brookfield Village.

Drive to the end of Gold Creek Rd to the carpark. Here is the trailhead of the Gold Creek Reservoir hike. The trail circumnavigates the reservoir in a pleasant forest with the opportunity to spot birds and goannas.
Gold Creek Dam was originally built in 1885 to supplement Enoggera Dam.

It was the world's first concrete stepped spillway and the precursor of modern roller-compacted concrete stepped spillways.
After heavy rain, it is possible to see the water cascading from the huge steps.
