Sat 2nd DW Half day walk around Mt Coot tha and D'Aguilar NP, Saturday 2 June 2018 

Since nobody wants to join us on the Gheerulla Circuit, we have decided to do a shorter walk around Mt Coot tha and through into the southern part of D'Aguilar NP (Brisbane Forest Park). We expect it to take about four-five hours, mostly on fire trails and including hills. We will have coffee at the Enoggera Reservoir cafe and return either around the lake or just meandering back more or less the way we came. NB this is a survey as neither of us can quite remember where to go; however, we are confident we will not get mislaid.

 

If you would like to join us, please ring Tracy on 0417 665 382 or Betty on 0408 129 241.
