Banksia Track

A great shaded circuit for most including prams and wheelchairs

Located in Chermside Hills Reserve at Downfall Creek Bushland Centre and is only 12km northwest of Brisbane city. A great spot for young families and prams. This trail is short but you can link it with others to make it a longer walk. Suitable for most, including wheelchairs. Allow an hour to do the 2.5km circuit. 


From the car park this circuit meanders just past the playground and picnic tables. As you go slightly uphill you will meet a T-junction, you can go right which will be anticlockwise for the circuit or left to to the circuit in a clockwise direction. If you do the circuit you will be following signs for the Xanthorrhoea Trail as well. This circuit is completely sealed and is suitable for prams as there are no stairs.
