Summary

Hidden boulders in one of the largest remnants of bush in Brisbane

Description

'Toohey Forest' is a large area of bushland in the southern suburbs of Brisbane. Scattered throughout the forest are innumerable small sandstone boulders. There's heaps of problems and it's nice & shady, so many summer afternoons and many many layers of fingertip skin have been lost here!

Access issues

'Toohey Forest' is owned by the Brisbane City Council. It's an important habitat for 400 plants and animals, and is very popular with walkers, joggers and picnicking families. Therefore the usual rules of taking out your rubbish, keeping noise to a minimum and so on are particularly important here if climbing is to remain an acceptable activity in the eyes of the community.

Approach

'Toohey Forest' is about 10 km south of Brisbane city. The best access for most of the boulders is from the car park just off Toohey Road, Tarragindi.

To get there by public transport, take the bus to Griffith University's Nathan campus which adjoins the forest. For public transport information see TransLink.

Where to stay

Camping isn't allowed at 'Toohey Forest'.

History

Back in the mists of time a rough typed guide call the "Prawn guide" by Rob Appleby with additions by Lee Skidmore.

in 2012 Bruce Taylor made a good effort to make a new guide, which was then merged all together into theCrag to try and make sense of it all.

Various tidbits of route names have been gleaned from Qurank and elsewhere. This guide is very much a work in progress, if you see issues please fix them or contact brendan.heywood@gmail.com
