Hard track
Starting from Chalcot Road, Anstead, this walk takes you on a circuit in the woodland of Moggill Conservation Park, crossing Little Ugly Creek and Pullen Creek along the way. Expect a quiet and serene walk amidst thin, picturesque trees. The sound of eastern whipbirds will accompany you throughout the track, but you’ll have a chance to spot rare bird species such as the black-breasted button-quail and black-chinned honeyeater as well. The lively forest is also home to koalas, bandicoots and lace monitors, so have that camera ready at all times. Parts of the track are quite steep and slippery, so grippy hiking boots with ankle support are recommended. Hiking poles may come in handy as well. Try to avoid the track after decent rainfall as the creek crossings may become dangerous due to the water level and speed. 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.
