Circuit

An easy, family friendly walk starting from the Woodgrove play area through the Upper Coochin Creek Environmental Reserve and back.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walking, jogging, push bikes. Disability access. Dogs on leash. 30 mins walk

HIGHLIGHTS
Start at the picnic area at Woodgrove Blvd, Beerwah. The picnic area has a nice view of the pond. Drinking water and BBQ is available. The play area is suited to young children. Watch out for Moorhens feeding along the banks of the pond and Cormorants drying their wings.

Walk south along Woodgrove Blvd and turn left (east) on the pathway that borders the Upper Coochin Creek Environmental Reserve. This reserve is a hidden gem in Beerwah with numerous birds and butterfly species to look out for as you walk along the path. Listen out for the Eastern Whipbird and keep a look out for the Orchard Swallowtail – one of the largest swallowtail butterflies in our region. There are a few benches and a seating area along the path to enjoy the shade under the Flooded Gums, Stringy Barks and Paper barks. Stop at the picnic bench on the corner of Pepper Tree way to head back. For a short way back, cut across Pepper Tree Way or Maidenhair Drive to Woodgrove Blvd. The walk may be extended from Pepper Tree by 200 or 300 m by continuing to Hickory Court. Veer left and follow the grassed walkway and bush track ending on a rocky outcrop by the Coochin Creek waterhole. This extension to the walk is only suited to walkers. Return the same way to re-join the path and cross the road.

HOW TO GET THERE
From Beerwah Town Centre, head south on Roberts Road. Past Beerwah State High School, turn left onto Woodgrove Blvd. Continue for 200m, the Woodgrove play area is on the left. Parking is available.
AFTERWARDS
A short drive takes you to the centre of Beerwah, visit the shopping centre, have coffee or lunch before continuing on your journey
