Easy track
Starting from Bellbird Grove Road, Enoggera Reservoir, this circuit walk visits the historical mines of Bellbird Grove that date back to the 1860s, providing information about the area through signposts spread along the track. You’ll be exploring the dense lively forest as you go back more than 150 years, visiting the various gold mines in the area. Keep an eye out for sulphur-crested cockatoos and eastern whipbirds in the canopy. If you’re here in spring, expect a colourful blanket of wildflowers around. The creeks and streams are best viewed after some decent rainfall. Keep in mind that this track involves steps in steep sections to ease the ascent/descent. 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.
