Mount Coot-tha Forest
The largest natural area in Brisbane, this 1500 hectares of open eucalypt forest holds more than 18 kilometres of walking tracks, 12 kilometres of mountain-biking tracks and a further 31 kilometres of multi-use tracks. Although the bushland itself is not stunning, it boasts some beautiful waterfalls after rain, golden wattles and other wildflowers in spring, and superb views over Moreton Bay, Stradbroke Island and the city. There are plenty of picnic areas too, including at Simpson and J C Slaughter falls.
