A Dull Walk – Sheep Station Creek Conservation Park – QLD

Sheep Station Creek Conservation Park

While we are staying at Morayfield North of Brisbane thought it may be a good idea to check out a local walking area.

Protected since 1977, the best kept bushwalking Brisbane North secret of Sheep Station Creek Conservation Park offers walkers and horse riders a quiet and easy escape into nature.

There are 3 walking circuits all classified as ‘easy’.

  • Grey Gum Circuit: 4.4km loop
  • Spotted Gum Trail: 1.2km one way
  • Ironbark Ridge Trail: 1.1km one way

It was late in the day so I could only attempt the Grey Gum Circuit: 4.4km loop and hope to finish before dark. Unfortunately darkness beat me and It was not long before it became to dark for photos and the last few hundred meters were with the phone torch.

The Grey Gum Circuit is a loop walk shared by walkers and horse riders, although I saw neither today. It was approaching evening and I was hoping to possibly see some wildlife so kept my eye out for koala’s and wallabies but saw nothing other than a some birdlife.

As one of the quieter and less well-known bushwalks around Brisbane, Sheep Station Creek is great for bird watching, especially during dawn and dusk. I heard many different birds but there was not enough light to spot any.

The park is located in Morayfield, approximately 7 kilometres south-west of Caboolture and 40 kilometres from Brisbane CBD.

Park your vehicle towards the end of any of these 4 roads to access the bushwalking Brisbane North trails on foot:

  • Phelps Road (from the West)
  • McLoughlin Road (from the East)
  • Williamson Road (from the South)
  • Mackney Rd (from the North-West)

A trail map is available, click here.

The park entrance is easiest to find when parking at the end of Phelps Rd. Trail signage is located at this entrance.
