Moderate track
Starting from Kidd Street, Redland Bay, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Bayview Conservation Area via multiple tracks, crossing Serpentine Creek several times along the way. With its gorgeous scenery and nearly flat gradient, this journey through the woods is a great way to disconnect from modern life. As you hike along the peaceful forest, look for koalas and goannas along with powerful owls and glossy black cockatoos. The tracks can be used by mountain bikers as well, so keep an ear out. Parts of the track may have lots of mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitos) so an insect repellent may come in handy. 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.
