Lake Manchester is on Jinibara Country and one of the secondary water storage areas for Brisbane and surrounds. This hike passes through open eucalypt and ironbark forest with the opportunity to spot lots of reptiles and birdlife including red-backed wrens, red browed finches and the yellow-tailed black cockatoos and is covered by a nice amount of shade with some stunning glimpses of Lake Manchester at many locations along the way.
The circuit follows the fire and SEQ water tracks that circumnavigate the lake and features a number of hilly sections, including some that are quite steep.
Upon returning to the picnic grounds we will enjoy a well earned treat and tea/coffee.
While this not an overly difficult adventure it is challenging due to the distance and hilly terrain so a moderate to high level of fitness is required.
● Lake views
● Wildlife & wildflowers
● A great track for those looking for a longer hike
