Moderate track
Starting from the car park off Mount Gravatt Outlook Drive, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount Gravatt via the Federation and Geebung tracks, then loops back via the Summit Track. Located in the heart of Brisbane, Mt. Gravatt provides you with some astounding views of the busy city. There is a cafe at the top where you can enjoy a coffee or breakfast whilst taking in the scenery. The landscape becomes even more picturesque when the sun is setting. You can explore the peaceful woodland with your dog as well, and there are many people regularly coming here just because of that. Keep an eye out for fluffy koalas on treetops. Keep in mind that parts of the track can be a bit slippery at times. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
