Daisy Hill Treasures

Are you looking for somewhere in Logan City to do a decent sized walk, hike or mountain bike trail? Who would have thought that, hidden amongst the Daisy Hill Koala Centre you would find such a place?  Our family has been to the Koala Sanctuary/Park many times over the years and never knew it existed until our search for 'Dog-friendly' walks revealed it.

Matt recently purchased a book called "Brisbane's Best Bush, Bay & City Walks" (ISBN: 978-921874-87-1) in hope of finding more weekend adventures for us and our fur baby.  This book tells you what to expect from each walk listed, including whether or not it is pet friendly.  A definite must for those who like to get out and about with their furry friends.



Just a short walk through the Daisy Hill Conservation Park, located behind the Koala Centre in Logan City's Daisy Hill area, you will find several walk options.  Today, with Matt's brother Daniel and two of his boys by our side, we set off in search of a great walk.  The sun was blaring which is not normal for this time in September.  Glad we packed water!



Approximately 1km from the lower car park, and along part of the walking/bike track, you find an intersection.  From here you choose which walk you would like to take.  We chose to take the Spotted Gum track.  The total walking distance was approximately 5.5km.

Along the walk we found all sorts of evidence that we are, in fact, in Australia.... not just suburbia.  There were red muddy tracks that looked like something from the outback along with an abundant amount of flora and fauna.  We honestly had no idea that a little piece of what looks like the outback can be found right on our doorstep here in Logan.  I would definitely recommend you pack water for this track.  In the Queensland heat it can be quite a trek on foot and you definitely need to be prepared.



So, if your family is looking for a great day out in the Southeast, be sure to check out the Daisy Hill Conservation Centre walking trails.  You can choose to walk or bring your off-road push bikes or horses - we saw both.  A great day for all!
