Starting from the end of Westminster Street, Drayton, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Mount Peel Bushland Reserve, visiting three peaks - including Mt Peel and Mt Peel North - along the way. Three summits in one hike can sound quite strenuous, yet this fun loop is not really that demanding. You’ll be visiting multiple lookouts which will provide you exceptional views over Toowoomba and the surrounding area. You can even get a close-up look at the aircraft landing on several airports nearby. As you make your way through the eucalypt woodland, keep an eye out for kangaroos, echidnas and some koalas. You’ll see lots of prickly pear, cactus and lantana as well. Tables and seats at the lookouts give you a chance of having a pretty scenic picnic. Wear a hat and sunscreen as the track and lookouts don’t have much shade. 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.
