JCBK Circuit(Jacksonia, Cockatoo, Bellbird, Kokoda)
Starting from Sir Samuel Griffith Drive(Tourist Drive 7), this walk takes you on a circuit in the diverse woodland of Mount Coot-tha Reserve mostly via the Jacksonia and Kokoda tracks. It also features multiple creek crossings and a picnic area midway through the hike. If you’re here in the morning, prepare to be welcomed by the harmonic sounds of cockatoos and cicadas throughout the journey. Don’t miss out on the opportunity of having a peaceful picnic in the Gap Creek Reserve as well. The multi-use tracks will give you decent cover from the sun as you make your way through the dense forest.The said tracks are mostly undulating but the steepness of the Kokoda Track and the amount of steps along the Jacksonia Track are not to be underestimated. Good hiking shoes and poles are recommended. 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.
