Nepal in the Park Cultural Day and Fundraising Walk

Home > Brisbane > Festivals | Walks

I'm a spottily employed journalist with a love of books and "genre" movies living in Brisbane. I have no blog as it's much too self-aggrandising.

If you're looking for a more sedate alternative to this Sunday's Bridge to Brisbane fun run, then why not think about the Nepal in the Park cultural day and fundraising walk at the Simpson Falls Picnic Ground, Mt Coot-tha?

Held by the Nepal Australia Friendship Association, money raised from the day will go toward building a children's nursery in a remote village in Nepal.

The day will consist of a 90 minute hike in the Mt Coot-tha bushland starting at 9am (registration at 8am) followed by Nepali cultural activities from 11am-1pm.

There is a small registration fee for the hike: adults $10, children $5 and families $20.

The hike is easy to do for anyone in good health and appropriate for the whole family except maybe small children who may find the 90 minute hike taxing.

The trail will be well marked and officials stationed along the way will ensure hikers are supervised.

Just make sure you bring good walking shoes, lightweight clothing and a jumper, just in case. A small pack to carry a water bottle and a light trail snack is also recommended.

The cultural part of the day will include: scrumptious Nepali food, Nepali handicraft stalls, Nepali dance and cooking lessons, massages, games for the children and plenty of prizes.

To get to Nepal in the Park, turn off Sir Samuel Griffith Drive at the intersection with Simpsons Road, proceed to the end of the road to Simpson Falls or take Bus No. 375 from the City to the last stop (the Bardon stop - next stop after 22A) then walk 600m to the end of Simpson Falls Road (via Simpsons Road).

Park facilities include parking, toilets, and playground. First aid is available.
