Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


The 'Swimming Pool Boulders' is a cluster of four boulders on the northern boundary of the forest, very close to a house with a swimming pool. The house owners do not hassle climbers, so please be quiet and courteous in return.

Access issues inherited from Toohey Forest

'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.


These boulders are about 200m east of the 'Northern Area' boulders, so one way of finding them is to follow the northern boundary east from the 'Northern Area' for about 5 minutes. You can also walk west along the boundary from the Grass Tree Track which starts at the end of Cheval St, or (if you're very discrete) duck through the vacant block at 47 Barnehurst St.
