Starting from Gold Creek Reservoir Carpark at the end of Gold Creek Road, Brookfield, this circuit walk pivots around the reservoir via the Gold Creek Reservoir Walking Track, visiting multiple viewpoints along the way. Built in 1885 to support Enoggera Dam, Gold Creek Dam actually has the world's first concrete stepped spillway. You’ll get a good view of the dam/spillway near the start, along with the opportunity to view it from the foreshore with a tiny detour. Don’t forget to take in the scenery and observe the colourful butterflies when you’re there. Other than that, the track is nicely shaded and a regular trail run destination for many. Expect to see and hear plenty of bird species throughout the journey. The track may be overgrown in parts. Keep an eye out for snakes, and bring an insect repellent to save you from the mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitoes). Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
