Hard track
Starting from Ironbark Gully Car Park off Samford Road, Ferny Hills, this walk takes you on a circuit in the woodland of Samford Conservation Park, visiting 2 picnic areas along the way. A picturesque forest that’s quite close to Brisbane, Samford CP has an extensive web of shared tracks that are used for hiking training/workouts regularly. The area is home to kookaburras, and you’re almost guaranteed to hear the birdsong as you make your way through the eucalpyt forest. Keep an eye out for cute little fairy doors set into the tree bases. After decent rainfall, you may cross some minor creeks that are nothing but pleasant tranquilizers in nature. Feel free to stop and listen to the burbling sound of water if you come across one. Have a picnic in the Ironbark Gully after the hike, and maybe get a coffee from the coffee cart that’s set up in the car park. Some parts of the track may have some loose gravel/dirt, so grippy footwear is recommended. The School Break section is a bit steep, therefore hiking poles may come in handy. Come early to minimize the amount of mountain bikers and the noise pollution coming from the road. 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.
