Easy track
Starting from the car park off Sir Samuel Griffith Drive, Mount Coot-tha, this walk takes you to the J.C. Slaughter Falls Picnic Area and back via the Mahogany Track. With undulating hills and plenty of amenities provided in the scenic picnic area, this walk is well suited for families. Additionally, you don’t need to leave your furry family member home as pets are allowed in the reserve. The track is well maintained and provides lots of shade, which makes it runnable as well. Try to spot some koalas on treetops, and hold onto your kids if they try to go and hug the fluffy creatures. Other than that listen to the sounds of kookaburras and bell miners and enjoy the relaxing stroll. Watch out for snakes along the track. 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.
