Benarkin State Forest on the Blackbutt Range is a great spot to picnic, fish, spot platypus or hike or ride on forest trails.

Explore the unsealed 16 kilometre scenic forest drive, which leads off the D'Aguilar Highway, through rainforest, hoop pine plantations and eucalypt forests containing blackbutt, tallowwood, white mahogany, gums and ironbarks to small flats beside the inviting waters of Emu Creek.

Spend the night here in one of two camping areas and camp beside Emu Creek (a tributary of the Brisbane River). Find a site that suits your needs as sites cater for a range of camping experiences from tents to caravans and motorhomes.

You can bring your family pet (on a leash) to Clancys camping area. You can walk or ride mountain bikes, or horses on the Bicentennial National Trail, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail or on formed roads and tracks; except where signed or when access is restricted due to timber harvesting activities. You can also ride trail bikes in some parts of the park.
