Just a stone's throw from the Brisbane Central Business Distrct, these parks offer the chance to have a break from the bustle of city life.
Samford Conservation Park, around 20 kilometres from the city is a refuge for native flora and fauna, protecting important habitats for reptiles, mammals and birds. Enjoy a barbecue or picnic in the shade and then spend the day exploring the parks by foot, atop a mountain bike or on horse back. You can even take your dog on the shared trails ... as long as it's on a leash. Listen to the multitude of birdcalls as you explore the parks, and keep an eye on the canopy and you may just spot a koala in one of the many eucalypt trees.
Bunyaville Conservation Park is the perfect spot for a picnic or barbecue under the forest canopy. Barbecues, firewood, picnic tables, drinking water and toilets are provided. Enjoy bushwalking, horse riding and cycling at Bunyaville. Dogs are allowed on shared trails only, provided they are kept on a leash at all times.
