A string of small boulders set apart from the main 'Toohey Forest' boulders.
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.
Instead of parking at the main 'Toohey Forest' carpark, contInue south down Toohey Rd. Turn left at the first set of traffic lights into Fairlawn St, then take the second left into Bankside St. Follow it around and park near house number 100.
The easiest access to the boulders is to scramble up the hill just left (north) of number 100. After 10m or so, a decent path forms and boulders soon become visible just uphill of the path as it heads north: '#9', '#8' and so on. 'Layercake' and the boulders north of it are found just downhill of the path.
The eternally optimistic Bruce Taylor has found and scrubbed most of this. Sometimes he climbs here too :)
