A short, less populated foreshore walk perfect for families, with river views up to the Houghton Highway Bridge.
This lightly trafficked walk starts at the car parks along Dohles Rocks Road in Griffin.
The track involves concrete paths and with the entire foreshore only spanning 500m, it is the perfect place for a picnic and short stroll, especially for families.
The walk is beside the upper reaches of the North Pine River, with views across to Tinchi Tamba Wetlands and upstream to Bramble Bay and the Houghton Highway Bridge.
There is a playground and picnic tables, as well as a number of ideal grassy spots for relaxing.
It is a good place for bird watching, especially at low tide, and there are some photogenic dead trees at the water’s edge which are lovely.
This walk is perfectly paired with the nearby Osprey House Environmental Centre Boardwalk – another great walk for families with even better bird watching opportunities.
Track: The walk consists of concrete paths and is very easy to follow.
Difficulty: The walk is flat and suitable for all fitness levels, including those in wheelchairs.
Direction: The walk is an out-and-back track that returns the way it came.
The walk starts from any of the number of car parks along Dohles Rocks Road in Griffin, 30 minutes north of Brisbane.
Parking is ample for how trafficked the walk is.
best time to go
The walk can be completed year-round, however the path is exposed to the sun and would be less desirable during the hottest part of the day in warmer months.
