MAKE A BOOKING

Join Chris our local AW host on the Somerset Trail walk in D'Aguilar National Park, Mount Mee. An easy and beautiful 13km return walk through open and pine forest as well as pockets of rainforest and scribbly-gum that is considered to be one of the best bushwalks near Brisbane city.

At around the halfway point, there are a series of lookouts over Somerset Dam to the north and Lake Wivenhoe to the south, with a backdrop of the far mountain ranges.
This area was heavily logged in the past (hence the saw mill at The Gantry) and evident by the 'plank' groves on some of the old tree stumps but has regrown into a beautiful diverse bushland.

Chris will be wearing the bright orange Adventurous Women cap for easy identification and will meet everyone in  The Gantry  for an 8.30am start.

Please note: The day use area at The Gantry has toilets, picnic and BBQ facilities as well as a number of large resident goannas!

Our social walks provide you with the opportunity to get to know other Adventurous Women in your local area, while enjoying the outdoors! Come along solo and you'll walk away with whole new group of friends who enjoy similar activities to yourself!
