The walk from JC Slaughter Falls to the Mt Coot-Tha summit is 2600m uphill (+5 km return.) It is called the Mahogany Trail, number 66 on the MtCoot-tha Forest Track Map. This is a social walk and so we will be going at a pace where we can still talk, we will be sharing the track with cyclists and horses are also allowed so keep to the left. If you are fit and want to walk quickly that is fine - just wait for the rest of us at the top and grab a table for us at the cafe :) At the Summit we will have breakfast or coffee together at the Kuta Cafe. The cafe does not take bookings so we will take our chances! The walk is dog friendly but the Cafe is not so if you don't want to leave your dog tied up then you won't be able to go in the Cafe. We can get you something from the Cafe if you wanted. . MEETING POINT (ALERT THIS IS A NEW MEETUP POINT DUE TO CLOSURE OF THE PREVIOUS TRACK) Turn off Sir Samuel Griffith Drive at the JC Slaughter Falls Picnic Area. We meet at the first block of toilets on the right. We leave very prompt at 7 am, if you are late and we have left, you can walk up and meet us at the Summit or you can try and catch up while walking up. There is still plenty of social time for chatting once we get up there and there will be the walk down. Please note that sometimes it is difficult to find a park so allow yourself time and you might have to walk a bit to the starting point. *THE WALK is a new walk because the previous track ( Summit track) has been closed for upgrading until mid 2019. It is a bit longer then the previous track so allow for 40 minutes walking up. See you there! Annemarie Please note that in summer it can be difficult to find a park so allow yourself time because we do leave at 7 a.m. exactly. *****COULD YOU PLEASE R.S.V.P. on the 'Brisbane Social Singles' site too. Not everyone who is attending is single as this is event is also on the 'Out and About Brisbane' site too. We just want to make it easy as possible for the hosts so that they only have to check one site not three.....thank you for understanding. from Annemarie *If you get too many emails ...just go to 'my profile' at the top of the page and turn of 'reminder emails'....
Griffith University - Nathan Campus - Mt Gravatt
SUNDAY WALK AT MT. GRAVATT! Join us every Sunday at Griffith University Nathan Campus for a walk around the circuit road for an hour or so. Go to 170 Kessels Road - which is opposite the QE2 hospital and go up the winding road - go past the little parking box (you don't have to pay on Sundays) TAKE THE FIRST TURN AT THE FIRST roundabout and park on the side of the road there. We will leave at exactly 3.30...if you are late - head in the direction of the buildings and catch up. The road is very flat and it is very scenic and very quiet at that time of the afternoon so it is a great location. WE STAY ON THE FOOTPATH...WE DO NOT GO INTO THE BUSH. We hope to see you there! The GOOGLE map can be wrong so follow the directions above....*
