Hiking up Mt Coot Tha and J C Slaughter Falls

Last weekend my beautiful friend/roommate and I hiked up Mount Coot Tha from the bottom of the J.C. Slaughter Falls on the outskirts of Brisbane. Despite living in the city and feeling constantly mesmerised by the lights and pulse of colourful movement, I miss being consumed by nature. I miss silence, greenery, dirt and open skies.

Our walk started from the bottom of the J.C. Slaughter Falls picnic area. Via the Aboriginal Art Trail we walked up to the Summit Lookout to finally emerge with a view of the city. The trail took about 90 minutes due to the constant incline. The dry spell meant the falls were dry, but the walk was gorgeous. Sunshine, a cool breeze, and trees proved to be just what the doctor ordered.
