Starting from Bellbird Grove Picnic Area, Enoggera Reservoir, this circuit walk explores the open eucalypt forest of D’Aguilar National Park along the Turrbal Circuit track, crossing Cedar Creek multiple times along the way. Expect a leisurely stroll through the dense vegetation as the cool breeze and the eastern whipbird calls accompany you. You’ll come across other bird species such as the eastern yellow robin and white-browed scrubwren. Additionally, look out for holes beside the trees which may be dug by the northern brown bandicoots at night. Finish the hike with a peaceful picnic at Bellbird Grove. Check the water level before crossing the creek to be safe. 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.
