Join Chris on this easy but beautiful 5km walk along well trodden paths and past the Discovery Centre.
One of the largest areas of remnant bushland within Brisbane, Karawatha Forest has plenty to see along the trails including kangaroos, wallabies, lorikeets and kookaburras.
Eucalyptus trees are most common but we will also see plenty of banksia.
Karawatha Forest Park and Brisbane City Council managed bushland to the west, form part of the largest remaining stretch of open eucalypt bushland in South East Queensland. The area is known as the Flinders Karawatha Corridor. This corridor extends from south-west of Karawatha Forest to Flinders Peak in Ipswich. The corridor is 56,350 hectares and 60 kilometres long.
Due to the size of Karawatha Forest Park and variety of habitats it contains, this forest is an important refuge for over 200 species of wildlife. This includes a number of threatened or endangered species such as the greater glider, squirrel glider and rare frogs. Karawatha has the highest diversity of frog species in Brisbane.
The forest also supports red-necked wallabies, swamp wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos. Hollows in older eucalypts are nesting places for gliders, possums, bats, parrots and owls. Birdlife is the most visible from of fauna in the forest, with over 100 bird species found.
