Easy track
Starting from the end of Chadwell Street, Chandler, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Tingalpa Creek Reserve via multiple tracks. Expect a leisurely stroll in a scenic and lively woodland, with gorgeous creek views and plenty of picnic tables along the track. The viewing platform is also a fishing platform which provides you a fish cleaning station and a tangler bin(for unwanted strings). The aforementioned picnic tables are in the shade as well as most of the track. The green scenery around you is home to many animals including wallabies and koalas. The relatively short distance from Brisbane you need to travel combined with the flat gradient makes this a great option for a family outing. As a plus, you can take your dog with you as well considering he/she is on a leash. Keep an ear out for horse riders throughout the track. An insect repellent may come in handy against the sandflies and midges. 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.
