Turkey Boulder

  • Grade context: AU
  • Ascents: 107
  • Aka: Boulder I




A large boulder with a long flat wall and a big staghorn fern at one end. Right near the houses on the northern boundary of the forest.

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, cleaning any chalk marks and so on are particularly important here if climbing is to remain an acceptable activity in the eyes of the community.


Walk downhill from the 'No 8 Boulder' for a minute or so.
