Slip on your walking shoes, slop on that sunscreen and slap on a hat, because we are going out today! Here’s our adventure guide for the nature lovers out there!
The Gap Dam: 10k’s from the City (if that). Here you have access to swim in the dam, there’s water sports for hire (canoe’s etc), a few walking tracks (some are up to 20k’s long) and space to stretch out and picnic under the trees.
Mount Glorious: Perfect for a drive, a bush walk (so many options) stop in at the cafe at the top and cool off at one of the great waterfalls on the way back.
Samford: Just like Mount Glorious, but beyond the bush walks & local fave – Cedar Creek for swims, you also have an awesome strip of local food & drink in Samford Village, artisan shops and fashion. Our fave is Samford Valley – Maiala, D’Aguilar National Park
The Scenic Rim: Enjoy a stunning drive and head to Tambourine Mountain for amazing views, nature walks, history or even a winery or two, or keep going to Springbrook for some of the most amazing waterfalls – steeped in Aboriginal history, learn about our First Nations Peoples and discover the magic of country.
Take it North: if you go past Cedar Creek you can go to Mount Mee – another beautiful drive with some great nature walks, from there you can head out to Woodford (maybe get a day ticket to the festival) or Beerwah for a great pub lunch before returning home.
Head East: We’ve got, Moreton Island Day trips, Redcliffe seaside vibes for fishing & swimming closer to home, Nudgee beach for walks with the dog, Bribie Island and Manly – these are all within very close drives, have a plethora of water activities and options for dining later.
There is seriously so much to do, see and go for our nature lovers – with Brisbane being perfectly positioned for some epic day trips – north, south, east or west!
