Brisbane's suburbs. like those of many cities,  have spread ever outwards, often at the expense of the natural environment. However, there are still large tracts of forest and wetlands that have been protected by local or state government, with many fine walking trails through a variety of open forests and wetlands, with a few small patches of rainforest vegetation.

Our emphasis is mostly on gentle walks, stopping to look at flowers, insects, birds and whatever else may turn up along the way (in warm months we often see lizards, and in the cooler months wallabies may get active by mid-afternoon).  If you like a longer, more energetic hike, that's fine too -  just let us know when you make your booking.

Lunch is usually a picnic somewhere in the forest or beside a lagoon.

If you would like to also visit a small wildlife sanctuary (small additional cost) or koala information centre (with live koalas no fee)  between walks, let us know before the day and we can plan that into our schedule.

Our normal pick-up time is 9.00am, but in unusually hot weather we may make an earlier start. We usually return you to your accommodation or transport about eight hours later (i.e. usually around 5.00pm).

If you would like a bush walk through the rainforests, for  additional cost we can take you to Lamington National Park, and if you wish we can also leave you there at the lodge or camp ground to continue exploring the trails for another day or week.
