Attraction details
Owner description: Toohey Forest in South Brisbane surrounds Griffith University and Mount Gravatt Cemetery, and contains stunning rock formations that have been 380 million years in the making. Opossums, gliders, owls and flying foxes are found throughout the forest. There are many walks to explore and four picnic areas with barbecues and seating.

Toohey Forest is a fantastic place to go for a walk, picnic, bicycle or scooter ride. Much of the forest is contained within Griffith University and the GU website and a visit to the EcoCenter at Griffith University's Nathan Campus is very handy. Group bushwalking in the Toohey Forest is a great experience and you can climb Mt Gravatt and take in the views

There were a few places to sit. I took some photos. What I remember most was a lack of wildlife. There was one nice circular area in the middle which had potential.

I used the tracks around the forest and lookout for training, it is so peaceful and at time demanding, walk from Logan Road up to the top using the tracks not the road, you can reward yourself at the cafe at the lookout.
Beautiful.

Lovely to drive through, as it always seems cool, because of the large trees. Not many stopping places though.
