Hard track
Starting from Chalcot Road, Anstead, this walk takes you on a circuit in the eastern part of the Moggill Conservation Park mostly via the Devils Break and Centre Road tracks, potentially visiting Pullen Creek along the way. Embark on a peaceful journey through the scenic woodland of Moggill Conservation Park. Keep an eye out for the black-chinned honeyeater and the black-breasted button-quail as you make your way through the thin trees. Besides the rare bird species, bandicoots and koalas reside in the area as well. You’ll be able to get great views of Ipswich and Brisbane from the higher parts of the track. Hiking poles may come in handy for the steep descents. The signage may be poor in parts, so come prepared. 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.
