D'Aguilar National Park
Walkabout Creek Visitors Centre, 60 Mount Nebo Road, The Gap, Queensland 4061
D'Aguilar National Park is a huge, diverse park of scribbly gums and lush rainforest, sprawling over the hills and mountains at Brisbane's back door. From the park's information centre, join in a fun and informative connect-with-nature activity, or explore the wildlife displays at the South East Queensland Wildlife Centre.
Enjoy great lookouts, walking tracks and picnic areas, also remote secluded camp sites for experienced walkers and navigators. At Jolly's Lookout (wheelchair accessible), cook a barbecue while taking in the views over Samford Valley and listening to early-morning birdsong. At Boombana, take a short rainforest walk among strangler figs and climbing vines.
In the northern section of the park inspect the remains of the antique sawmill in the Gantry day-use area. Fit walkers can hike the Somerset trail to enjoy 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 campground (four-wheel-drive access only).
This huge park is a treasure trove close to Brisbane, offering a circuit drive of 90 minutes through a range of natural habitats.
