Westside Track, Maiala

Brisbane Forest Park, The Gap, Queensland 4061


This delightful walk takes you through some of the best rainforest in Brisbane Forest Park. The rainforest is more varied here, with strangler figs, buttressed trees, stinging trees and large rainforest trees such as white booyong.

After walking for about 500 metres you will come to a clearing beside the road – Western Window – with a magnificent view over the scenic rim of mountains to the west. You can see Cunningham’s Gap and Mount Barney on a clear day. Walk down some steps and you will reach a junction.

If you take the track to the right, you will walk below the rocky basalt cliffs and through wet sclerophyll forest and rainforest.
