Araucaria Walk Circuit, Enoggera Reservoir

Enoggera Reservoir © Caleb Gittins

Directions: The Araucaria Walk, on the edge of Enoggera Reservoir, lies in the Southern part of the D’Aguilar National Park. Follow Waterworks Rd and Mt Nebo Rd to D’Aguilar National Park headquarters – the entrance is off to the left. This is a little more than 1 km from the Settlement Road traffic lights. Take the path to the right past the D’Aguilar National Park headquarters.

No permit is required for the walk, unlike the rest of the area immediately surrounding the reservoir. (Permits for the rest of the reservoir can be arranged at the D’Aguilar National Park headquarters.) The Araucaria walk is 5 km long, largely passing very close to the water’s edge. There is a 1 km loop at the end. It is good for Forest Kingfisher, Pacific Baza, Bell Miners and Rose Robin (in season), Both Pardalotes occur here (look for their nest holes at the edge of the path when it is cut into the hill
side).

Note. Some of the Brisbane 385 buses go to directly to the Park headquarters, others turn around in an area about ½ km before the park.
