Moderate track
Starting from Ironbark Gully Car Park off Samford Road, Ferny Hills, this walk takes you on a circuit in the woodland of Samford Conservation Park via multiple shared-use trails. A great refuge for the precious wildlife and flora, Samford CP is a great place to spend the afternoon. With multiple picnic sites and trails that can be used by horse riders and mountain bikers, every type of visitor can enjoy the red ironbark trees of Samford. Possums and flying foxes are amongst the animals you can spot as you hike along the shaded trails. Have a picnic in the Ironbark Gully after the hike, and maybe get a coffee from the coffee cart that’s set up in the car park. Some parts of the track may have some loose gravel/dirt, so grippy footwear is recommended. Come early to minimize the amount of mountain bikers and the noise pollution coming from the road. 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.
