Moderate track
Starting from the car park near the Bush Chapel in J.C. Slaughter Falls Picnic Area, Toowong, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Coot-tha and back via the Summit Track, visiting the J.C. Slaughter Falls with a side trip. The city of Brisbane looks gorgeous from the top of the mountain, and the cafe and restaurant up top lets you savor the views while keeping yourself fed & energised. The track has lots of water fountains and is paved with gravel all the way, so you can take your whole family(including your dog) along. Don’t miss out on the waterfall if you’re here after some rain. Also, the bush chapel near the start features a hand-made sandstone pulpit and the whole setup has a rustic feel to it. The area tends to be busy, so come early to avoid the crowd and protect yourself from the midday sun. This can be made into a one-way trip if you arrange someone to pick you up from the summit. 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.
