We've been enjoying this little spot: Cornubia Forest Park Bushland Corridor

Posted by

If you are looking for a tranquil spot to walk or jog in the Daisy Hill region, you cannot go past the Cornubia Forest Park Bushland Corridor adjacent to Parkview Crescent. You will feel as though you have stepped far from suburbia as you listen to the beautiful bird songs in this tiny bushland.

201 bird species have been spotted in this area including 30 species of waterbird, 17 Australian raptors, 11 wader species, 10 pigeon/dove species, 6 cockatoo species, 9 cuckoo species, 5 species of night-birds, 10 of the flycatchers, 4 species of finch including the rare Powerful Owl, Grass Owl, White Throated Nightjar, Marbled Frogmouth, Bush Hen, Lewin's Rail, Oriental Cuckoo, White-eared Monarch, Square-tailed Kite, Noisy Pitta, Plumed Whistling-Duck, Chestnut Teal, Black-necked Stork, Grey Goshawk, Painted Button-quail, Emerald Dove, Wompoo Fruit-dove, Glossy Black-Cockatoo and Spotted Quail-thrush.

With so many rare and wonderful species this is definitely an on-leash only walking trail.

The corridor has many intertwining paths so you can choose your own trail and walk through many kilometres of winding paths and little bridges.

   

   

The walkways follow the banks of a small stream which you can hear trickling as you move from one end of the corridor to the other.

   

The landscape is dominated by tree ferns, palms and eucalypts.

   

Take your time or use these rising and falling, winding paths to give your dog a fantastic workout in a scenic spot. It is easy to spend up to 1 hour in here and cover around 5 kilometres of walking trail.

To extend your walk onto something slightly more energetic try continuing onward and upward to the very top of nearby Roderick Street and enjoy the magnificent views to the east and south.

Enjoy this little piece of paradise in tucked away within our Brisbane suburbia.
