Gold Creek Reservoir has a variety of habitats ranging from pockets of rainforest, a flowing creek, open water, open eucalyptus forest and forest with dense understory. The walk this year will extend right around the reservoir and will cover all these habitats. It is approximately 5.5km and will take around 3-4 hours. Around 200 species have been recorded at this location so we can expect to see around 50+ species. We will walk on well-formed paths and tracks but most of the walk is on a narrow bush track that is rough in places with short steep sections which we will get out of the way early. Participants will need to carry some water and a snack for a short stop on the way, and please wear sturdy shoes. This is a Grade 3 walk.
The walk will start from the carpark at the end of Gold Creek Road. From the Kenmore roundabout on Moggill Road, take Brookfield Road. After about 4km at the Brookfield showgrounds, turn right at the roundabout onto Gold Creek Road. After about 5km on Gold Creek road, you will reach the carpark.
There are toilets near the carpark. Please bring a chair and tea for bird call afterwards.
