A walk for keen Koala fans
If you're looking for a great wildlife walk, why not pay a visit to the Daisy Hill Conservation Park and Koala Centre? With kilometres of walks, mountain bike trails and horse riding tracks, endless opportunities to spot wildlife and guaranteed koala interactions, Daisy Hill really does have something for every family. You can even bring your furry friend (on a leash of course).
Located in prime koala-spotting territory, the area is known for its wild koala population. On days when the koalas are feeling shy, you can always take the opportunity to spy wallabies, birdlife and lizards.
There are a variety of trails to choose from, depending on your time constraints and fitness level. The shortest walking trail is just 450m return, but if you are up for a good half day trek then the 9km Buhot Creek Circuit is for you.
Also located on-site is the family favourite (and free) Koala Centre, with its resident koalas bred in captivity. The friendly volunteers are always available to answer questions and there are free talks twice-daily. The interactive exhibits are well worth a visit, as is the climb to the top of the observation tower taking you closer to the tree tops.
Daisy Hill Conservation Park is located next to the Pacific Motorway (M1) 25kms south of Brisbane. To get there take exit 24. The gates open at 7am and the centre at 9am. For more information on how to get there, click here.
