Did you know?

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


Nothing worldclass, and nothing like the main area, but there's treasure to be found amongst the junk.

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.


From the Maccas, walk along the road towards the closest bit of bush, skirt around the fence next to the road. Take the track following the fenceline uphill, bending right at the end. (If you want to access the bottom of the weetbix-y quarry, go down the rocky slope here.) Keep following the track right, leaving the fenceline, and turn left when you reach an obvious wide track. Follow this for 100m or so, with the top of the cliffs about 20m to your left, until you reach a 3-way intersection. Take the rugged, right track trending downhill for 20m or so, then beeline right straight into the bush and you're in The Junkyard!

There's a bus stop just up the road.

I stumbled upon this accidentally while bushbashing back home from work one day in the Autumn of 2014. Good ol' Toohey just keeps giving. Get exploring!
