The Secret Forest and Its Connection to NPAQ

The Brisbane City Council has developed the Oxley Creek Common Reserve and provided excellent facilities.  There is a large shelter known as the Red Shed.  A community Bushcare group has planted many native trees along Oxley Creek and the pathway.  This is a social walk along a level gravel pathway.  The object of the walk is to walk to the Secret Forest where NPAQ member, David Drake, will give a short presentation on the significance of the stand of Hoop pines (Araucaria cunninghamii) and the connection to NPAQ.  This walk is 4.3 kilometres return.  A side pathway to Pelican Island provides a good opportunity to observe water birds, making the two walks a total distance of 5.5 kilometres return.  A good opportunity to get back into walking or riding your bike.
