Starting from the J.C. Slaughter Falls Picnic Area, Toowong, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Mount Coot-tha Reserve, visiting the said mount’s summit and J.C. Slaughter Falls along the way. This nice loop in nature provides you with all kinds of visual and aural features. You’ll be hearing birdsong throughout the journey, with the complementing sound of burbling water near the waterfall. Expect to see spectacular views over the city of Brisbane from the summit. There is a cafe and a restaurant at the top where you can take a break and enjoy a good meal, or just a coffee to sip on whilst savoring the views. This route can make for a great family trip with all the amenities provided throughout, or you can come solo and make it a fun trail run. The area tends to be busy, so come early to avoid the crowd and protect yourself from the midday sun. 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.
