We are blessed with amazing weather in South East Queensland, even during the Winter months, the cool sunny mornings are perfect for getting the family out for a breath of fresh air and some exercise, so finding somewhere pleasant to walk is vital, you will be motivated, eager to get out there and you'll walk for longer.

In Brisbane we are spoilt for choose with fabulous parks and reserves, bushland areas and walking tracks. One such reserve in the Coorparoo/Camp Hill area on Brisbane's south is Whites Hill Reserve.

Best known for its regular Touch Football competitions Whites Hill Reserve also offers a wide range of walking tracks, both paved and natural, a vast off-leash area for dogs and even a cafe. Whilst walking watch out for koalas and short-beaked echidnas, sacred kingfisher and powerful owls amongst the dry rainforest vegetation.

The main entrance and car park are on Boundary Road, but the reserve is also accessible from Pine Mountain Road, Bendena Tce, Jones Rd & Indus Street. For a brisk mostly up hill walk on paved paths I recommend the route from Indus Street, turning right and following the concrete pathway to the dog off leash area on Boundary Rd. For a more natural trail through the bush try entering at Pine Mountain Road and follow the regularly placed maps and signs to either climb to the summit or circumnavigate the entire reserve.

For more detail on the Whites Hill Reserve check out the Brisbane City Council site.

Whites Hill Reserve is just one of the fantastic outdoor recreation spaces in the area and I will be exploring more of them over the next few weeks. Stay tuned, and get out there for some fun in the sun.
