A WALK IN THE PARK
A beautiful Australia Day and a short ramble in Brisbane Forest Park. It is hard to believe that this rugged forrest is right in the centre of a metropolitan city of 2 million people. Brisbane lived up to its name as the " River City" in the recent floods and yes we are reminded now that the city is built on a flood plain with the meandering brisbane river winding through the city 25 km from the sea.
But in this centre are some small ranges which lead to the D'Aguilar Range and which were formerly prized by the timber millers but are now preserved as recreational areas.
