Easy track
Starting from the end of Latina Avenue, Seven Hills, this walk takes you on a circuit in the woodland of Seven Hills Bushland Reserve, visiting the Ridge Peak and Minnippi Creek along the way. Located in the city of Brisbane(literally), the reserve lets you enjoy the beautiful scenery with your dog as well. The shaded tracks are wide and well-maintained, with adequate and clear signposts at intersections. All of this makes the destination a strong candidate to become your regular walk. You’ll also catch glimpses of the city on the higher altitude parts, and have a chance to spot a koala whilst looking in between the trees. Customize the track and even go off trail and follow the creekbed if you like. Just make sure to bring plenty of water, a hat, and a mozzie(Australian slang for mosquito) spray with you. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
