Kedron Brook Trail

by Sally Foster (follow)
Ride along one of the best bike trails in Brisbane

Some of the best memories I have made as a mum are those long walks while my baby sleeps in the pram. These walks can be therapeutic for many reasons. It gives you a chance to clear your head and stretch your legs and is the perfect 'me' time.

If you are looking for somewhere new to take your pram walk, the Kedron Brook Trail is lovely. Stretching for almost 20kms from Nundah to Mitchelton, the trail lets you meander passed creeks, parks and picnic facilities.

With a peaceful tree lined setting and plenty of wide open green spaces, the trail is perfectly designed to be shared by both pedestrians and cyclists. It is an easy walk with changing scenery to keep you interested.

The pocket that I venture on most often starts at the end of Hedley Avenue in Nundah. I follow the trail until reaching Shaw Road in Wavell Heights. This route return takes about an hour, is flat, and on a designated path the whole time.

If you are like me and require a caffeine hit while walking, there are plenty of cafes not far off the path. Toombul shops has plenty of options. Or you could try Shambhala Espresso on Shaw Road. Bring along your KeepCup for a discount.

Meeting up with another mum to accompany you on your walk? Kalinga Park is a great place to meet. It has an amazing playground with tree house structures, plenty of swings and a mini traffic track with street signs for little bike riders.

Kalinga Park is shaded by trees and is alongside the creek. If you walk across the bridge to the other side of the creek, the path you will find has a wilderness setting like you would find in a rainforest. There are also fairy houses dotting the path that the kids would enjoy spotting.

If you are starting the walk passed Shaw Road, the stretch up until the Bus Depot at Lutwyche is very lush and green. If you bring your dog, there are sections of the creek where dogs often run riot through the water as there are embankments for them to get down.

It would be remiss of me not to mention the magpies along the path. I find that the path between Nundah to Wavell Heights I haven’t been swooped by a magpie. After Shaw Road it does sometimes happen. So watch out in Magpie season!

Cost: Free!

Parking: You can start the walk anywhere along the bikeway and will find street parking. If you decide to head to Kalinga Park, there is plenty of parking there. There is also ample parking at Toombul shops.
