Leader – Julie

Total Distance walked - 16.5k

2012-06-23 Toohey ForestWe last walked in the Toohey Forest in February 2008 with Peter and Sara. I don’t remember a lot about it except that it was very hot and that we had lovely views from the Mt Gravatt Lookout.  It was overcast today and a lot cooler so a better time of the year to do this walk.

There were only 5 of us today as a lot of other walkers were away.  We parked our cars at the Toohey Picnic Area and then Graham and Helen, Colin, Sue and Julie (Leader) set off from the Mayne Estate Picnic Area and did a walk up in that area. We stopped to look at the view from Pegg’s Lookout  which overlooks the Salisbury Industrial area and a lot of mountains far in the distance. Nice and clear today.  

Report

Back across the road and then we had a later morning tea up at Sandstone Lookout. Not much of a view from there or the Western Outlook as all the trees have grown up and blocked the views. Some of us sat on the large rocks but most sat on a seat made from recycled milk bottles (a sign said 1500 2L containers were used to make it). Looked like a regular seat but not made out of wood or steel. 

We then walked along the Toohey Ridge Track and Baileyana Track and through the tunnel under the South East Freeway which brought us out near the Griffith University,  Mt.  Gravatt Campus. We walked up and around the side of the mountain, quite steep in some places and came out at the Mount Gravatt Outlook. We had a later lunch here and then had a look at the beautiful views of the city and Brisbane port.  

We walked through the Mt. Gravatt Campus, which was all closed up for the holidays and then past the Old Yarranlea State School which has a maximum enrolment of 18 students. It operates as a State Primary School  in partnership with Griffith University. It was built in 1888 on the Darling Downs near Pittsworth and reopened on this site in 1987. We then walked on the Inter Campus Link and along the Nathan Ridge Track back to the Toohey Picnic Area.

We had our “refreshements” at McDonalds McCafe (where we had stopped at the toilet on our way to start the walk. There are no toilets near the Picnic areas)  The other Coffee Shop that I had planned to go to was already closed.

It was a good day today and I didn’t have to double back anywhere on this walk, as on the Venman Bushland walk where we did a couple of extra kilometers. I hope that I have redeemed myself.  Colin measured the Track Map on Google Earth which indicated we had ended up doing 16k today - Julie

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
