Unwind over a leisurely lunch, nestled serenely among tall eucalypt trees with sweeping panoramas of Moreton Bay, the Brisbane skyline and the Glass House Mountains.
Forming part of the historic Enoggera goldfields, this site was once used by gold prospectors as camp.
Listen for the distinctive 'chak-ak-ak-ak-ak' call of Lewin's honeyeaters. In winter, admire sprays of white blooms decorating the tallowwood trees, a nectar-laden treat for grey-headed flying foxes, scaly-breasted lorikeets and squirrel gliders.
