D’Aguilar National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Discover remote gorges, sheltered pockets of subtropical rainforest, expanses of eucalypt woodland and spectacular views to Moreton Bay, all within an hour and a half’s drive of Brisbane.

D’Aguilar National Park (formerly Brisbane Forest Park) protects the D’Aguilar Range’s vast bushland area. The park is striking in its diversity of environments and plant communities. Take a journey through open eucalypt woodlands, scribbly gum forests and lush subtropical rainforests.

Start your park visit at Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre. Then travel into the cooler forests of Southern D’Aguilar to enjoy scenic lookouts, walking tracks and shady picnic areas. At Jolly’s lookout (wheelchair-accessible), cook a barbecue while taking in the views over Samford Valley. At Boombana, take a short rainforest walk among strangler figs and climbing vines.

In the northern Mount Mee section of the park, discover the remains of an historic sawmill in the Gantry day-use area. Fit walkers can hike the Somerset trail for views of Somerset and Wivenhoe lakes. The rockpool at Rocky Hole is surrounded by eucalypt forest and is a great place for a cooling swim in summer. Campers can stay at Neurum Creek or the more remote Archer camping area (four-wheel-drive access only).
