Cutting through Brisbane's suburbs are the green belts - a fantastic network of secret pathways
Creekside Park is at the heart of a pleasant and serene one hour green belt walk connecting the back streets of Kenmore to Brookfield, and one that is a bit of a local’s secret.
Cornubia Forest Park is a delightful lush oasis of fig and gum treed bushland with a wide easy grade paved path cutting through its base, that is ideal for walking, cycling, prams and wheelchairs.
One of Brisbane’s most charming walk/rides is buried in Eastern suburbia that is largely known for its shopping complex rather than its nature.
This path of approx 8km return has a surprisingly rural feel, twisting along Kedron Brook via old farmlands.
This 4km return creek side jaunt follows a shady flat paved path to Northey St farm.
A serene patch of bird-inhabited wetland in the midst of an agricultural and industrial area, Oxley Creek Common has a couple of easy paved walking trails and picnic amenities for the visitor.
This 6-7km return trail from Woolcock Park cuts a green swathe through the inner west and north, taking in wooded glades, parklands, a little kids trail bike circuit, picnic spots and playgrounds.
This short well paved and shaded walk of roughly 2.5 km return cuts a swathe through and alongside a secret forest, complete with remnant billabongs and the odd secluded playground.
This delightful leafy walk/ride follows Enoggera Creek through lush eucalypt groves and past golden bamboo clusters as it twists through St John’s Wood and encircles the Ashgrove Sportsground on its way to Dorrington Park.
