Located in Foote Sanctuary in the Sunshine Coast region. Approx 1hr 30min from Brisbane. There is over 23 acres of bushland which you can explore. These trails are suitable for most people and fitness levels as well as dogs. Allow 1hour to explore.
Foote Sanctuary located on the eastern side of Buderim on the Sunshine Coast, is a beautiful natural reserve managed by a local community group and boasts a variety of tree species, fauna and flora, pretty waterfalls, large rocks, and scenic trails.
1hr 30min north of Brisbane on the Sunshine Coast, approximately 10 minutes drive from Buderim main shops. There are a few entrances to this reserve, however the main entrance is at the car park at the end of Park Lane which is off Fountain Road. The car park has approximately 10 car parks, however still somewhat limited so we recommend going there during the week or out of busy holiday periods if you prefer a quieter walk.
What to take:
- Longish dog lead
- Water for you and your dog plus a portable/collapsible dog bowl you can carry with you, I have a fold up Ruffwear bowl I always carry in my hiking pack
- Dog bags
- Suitable footwear and clothing
- Back pack, hydration pack or drink bottle
- You could also do a picnic there with two covered tables plus other tables in the designated picnic area which is not far from the carpark
- If you go after it rains, you will see more waterfalls
- Dogs are to be on lead
- Take a longish lead
- Suitable for small to large dogs, however I strongly recommend not to take overweight/unfit dogs, very small dogs, or old dogs on the dirt, therefore difficult, trails. These dogs however could do the easy graded and shorter trails
- Water taps (and fountain) on site
- I saw two dog bag dispensers and bins
- Be courteous with other dog walkers on the dirt trails
