Gold Mine Picnic Area Circuit
Starting from the Gold Mine Picnic Area on Sir Samuel Griffith Drive, this walk takes you on a circuit in the western woodland of Mount Coot-Tha Reserve, crossing East Ithaca Creek along the way. You can expect a leisurely walk in the woods that ends with a peaceful picnic. Quick and undemanding, this walk can be a great choice for families and beginner hikers. You can extend the walk by taking the surrounding tracks and explore more of the reserve if you’d like to. There are informational signposts that instruct you about the history of gold mining in the area. As a plus, you can bring your dog to this trip as well, considering you have him/her on a leash. 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.
