Gorge Discovery Circuit is a 3km, grade 2 Return hike located in Springwood Conservation Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.

Summary

Springwood Conservation Park shelters 36 hectares of open eucalypt forest and is home to a variety of wildlife. You might catch a glimpse of koala’s, water dragons, swamp wallabies and many species of birds. The terrain makes for interesting exploring, with large boulders, balancing rocks, caves, cliffs and a gorge. You can see geological strata and fossils exposed in the old quarry. In late winter and spring you’ll see wildflowers in bloom – golden candle sticks, yellow bush pea, purple hovea and golden wattle. During the wetter months, look for seasonal waterfalls cascading down the gullies.

Eucalypts dominate Springwood Conservation Park. This is one of only two places in Logan where Planchons Stringybark grows.

You can explore the Park through a network of graded walking tracks. A lookout with spectacular views across Logan is well worth the climb.

Wheelchair access has also been provided along a section of the Gorge Discovery Circuit.
