A popular recreational site for decades, Venman Bushland National Park – with its mixture of eucalypt and angophora trees – is home to koalas, possums, gliders, wallabies, powerful owls and many other bird species. Originally private property, the park protects the headwaters of Tingalpa Creek. Frogs, water-rats and water dragons live in and around this creek and the surrounding waterholes. The park offers a couple of signposted, easy to moderate walking tracks as well as a picnic and barbecue area where you can sometimes spot wallabies. The Go Bush program offers ranger-guided tours and talks, as well as children’s activities and field skills workshops. The park now forms part of the Koala Bushland Coordinated Conservation Area, managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service. Disabled Accessibility: A number of pathways in the Daisy Hill Forest Park and Venman Bushland National Park are accessible to strollers and wheelchairs.
