I discovered it last weekend when I did not want to travel too far but craved some open air and wildlife. It was very easy to find and there is a useful map just at the entrance mapping out all the various trails. You can pick and choose from quite a few, most are about an hour but you can certainly walk for longer if your energy levels are up. It was a glorious day and so we walked most of the routes on pebbly wide paths where you could look up to see the tops of the trees, or catch a kangaroo jumping through the sparse undergrowth. I think that is what I liked about it. It was not too dense, so you had a sense of space and light as you walked through. There were some exposed areas, which called for Hats and sunscreen and others which were more protected and shady, and everywhere there were helpful signs directing you one way or another.
A Discovery Centre, located at 149 Acacia Road, Karawatha, has recently been opened by Brisbane City Council which has a wealth of interactive experiences, insights into the local environment, a virtual reality experience and even an artist in residence. They run workshops and activities so it is well worth paying them a visit to see what is on. This is also the home of Queensland's first nature play space complete with water and climbing features and discovery trails. It is free for all and it is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9 am to 4pm.
