Listed as a nature reserve, Lake Cressbrook is home to an array of wildlife including diverse birdlife, red deer and a large population of Eastern Grey kangaroos. Lake Cressbrook is a source of drinking water, so swimming is not allowed. However, activities such as boating, fishing and water sports are all permitted. Lake Cressbrook boasts impressive picnic and barbeque areas, a children’s playground, beach volleyball area and 5 km walking circuit.
3. Explore Ravensbourne National Park
Ravensbourne Escape is only a short distance from Ravensbourne National Park. Renowned for its beautiful rainforest, the park is home to Sydney blue gums and over eighty bird species. These include: green catbirds, red-tailed black-cockatoos, paradise riflebirds and vulnerable black-breasted button-quails. Furthermore, there are five walking tracks in the park. The most popular, the Gus Beutel lookout, sports views of the Lockyer Valley and Scenic Rim. While there is no on-site camping, Ravensbourne National Park has two, day-use picnic and barbecue areas (BYO wood and drinking water).
