Kumbartcho is a council owned Flora & Fauna Sanctuary that adjoins the South Pine River at Eatons Hill.
There are remnants of riverine rainforest next to the river that existed when European Settlers first came to the area. In the past 15 years a group of South Pine River Warriors have planted approximately 140,000 trees and other plants making this reserve the perfect habitat for what now has a wonderful list of 179 species of birds over the past 13yrs – per eBird.
The track along the river is an easy walk of approximately 1.5kms (each way) after walking down a set of stairs from the carparks and dam. The walk will take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours depending on our pace.
As usual please wear a hat and bring sunscreen, insect repellent & water. We will have morning tea and bird call somewhere at the facility between the 2 car parks chosen when we finish the walk. There are toilets at the complex and please also bring a chair.
For anyone interested, there is a plant nursery for any gardening enthusiasts.
Directions: 2nd car park, Bunya Pine Court, Eatons Hill, Brisbane northside.
