Time Out says

This open eucalypt forest is a remnant of what Brisbane used to look like. There are sandstone boulders, grass trees, forested ridges, scrubby gullies and several views across Brisbane contrasting the prehistoric and modern worlds. Kookaburras are easy to spot, the keen-eyed may see koalas and echidnas, and it’s only 10km from the CBD. A variety of trails from 250m to 3.5km weave through this huge forest, smack bang in the middle of the southside. Many of the tracks are sealed and make for decent wheelchair/pram/bike routes. Other unsealed trails explore the rougher sections of this beautiful forest in Nathan and Mount Gravatt. Try the Sandstone Circuit for an easy 30 min walk with views to the west, or go for a 5km trip on the paved Toohey Ridge/Nathan Ridge track from Toohey Road to Nathan Campus and back.
