J.C. Slaughter Falls

Directions:
Drive west from the
city along Milton Road and continue along Mt Coot-tha Road. Mt Coot-tha Road turn off to the right,
past Mt Coot-tha Botanical Garden, at the 2nd round about. Take the right fork of Sir
Samuel Griffith Drive (not the turn along Scenic Drive) and the entrance to the Park is a few hundred
metres on the left. The parking lot at the end of the paved road is best for birds.

J.C. Slaughter Falls Park is one of the reliable Powerful Owl spots in Brisbane, they can sometimes
be seen at dusk on the trees above the upper parking lot. White-throated Nightjars are regular in spring,
they can be seen highlighted against the sky at dusk around the parking lot and in the clearing around
the pond which is about half a kilometre along the path leading from the upper parking lot. J.C.
Slaughter Falls Park is also a popular picnic spot with barbecues provided – great for an champagne
breakfast but be early.
