Join experienced pack hiker Chris at Gold Creek Reservoir, located in Upper Brookfield, in Brisbane's western suburbs for a hike training session to help get you ready to tackle more difficult terrain and or/longer more difficult hikes.. Gold Creek is a hidden gem with a great trail close to the city.

The track can be fairly narrow and quite steep at times so while it is a grade is 3 trail (Moderate) please note there is some uneven ground, however the spectacular lake views are quite something and as we walk we will pass through tall eucalypt forests with thickets of rainforest plants in the more protected gullies.

  • Uneven surface walking
  • Pack and pole training and advise as required
  • Help learning to use new hiking equipment
  • Training for multi day full pack hikes or day hikes

This grading is 3 (Moderate) but please note there is some uneven ground and steps

If bringing a pack please ensure it has a supportive waist band and we recommend no more than 10kgs of weight for beginners.

ideatip: bottles of water are a great weight as they're easy to measure 1L =1Kg and if you're finding it too heavy can be tipped out to reduce your weight

The dam is Queensland's second oldest, constructed in 1886 to supplement Enoggera Dam. It was extensively refurbished in 2005 and is the world’s first un-reinforced concrete stepped spillway. The lake is quite small with a catchment area of just 10.5km2 and holds 801 megalitres of water at full supply.

The bushland surrounding Gold Creek is part of the D'Aguilar National Park and contains plants and wildlife of regional biodiversity significance including many bird species such as Whip Birds, Bell Birds and the beautiful Azure Kingfisher.

When we return to our start point we will enjoy a well earned cuppa and something sweet (supplied).

The picnic area is really beautiful so you may want to bring along your lunch and stay on

This was a fabulous city walk. I grew up in Perth all my life and I discovered places and things on this walk that I never knew existed. Jazzy is just amazing, full of knowledge and patience and just a fabulous host. Thank you for an amazing day. And I loved Brads biscuits, which are always a highlight for me.
