Much of this reserve is dedicated to use by the Scout Group so please do not enter without permission.
This is something special – the back way into Springbrook from the end of Tallebudgera Creek Road. The route has recently been ratified, modified and variously signed by Gold Coast City Council.
I walked the track on 3rd November 2016. It’s tough – 750m climb over 5km.
The landowner at the top welcomes walkers who need to traverse their land BUT ONLY if you get and carry a free permit from www.thecreamtrack.com.au
My new book created with Gillian Duncan is now available for purchase at www.familybushwalks.com.au. It’s our third book, following two books of recreational trails for cyclists; this one is aimed at walkers and runners who want to go bush without committing to long distances or lots of climbing.
300 walks are described in detail including of course a brand new fully researched topo map showing all points of entry, resources like water and shelter, and making clear the effort required to complete the walk.
Here is a map I made for the Numinbah Valley Environmental Education Centre for the upcoming Duke of Edinburgh Expedition where youngsters walk 15km from Springbrook to NVEEC then kayak 5km to the Western Boatramp.
