Lush green rainforest canopies, expanses of eucalypt woodland, the sweet sounds of native birds and the arousing aroma of native flowers await you at the beautiful subtropical rainforests of Moreton Bay's D’Aguilar National Park.
The park boasts two spectacular regions – the South D’Aguilar section at the southern end of the park, and the Mount Mee section at the northern end of the park.
Both sections feature an abundance of walking tracks that lead deep into the heart of the park, where you can feel the crackle of leaves under your feet and look upwards and see the tall, leafy green trees look like they are almost touching the skyline.
The various walking tracks have trails that are suitable for beginner walkers, as well as more difficult hikes for those who are more experienced bushwalkers.
If you feel like taking a leisurely walk, there are trails between 750m and 3km which will allow you to explore this glorious patchwork of subtropical rainforest at your own pace. This will take you roughly between 20 minutes to 1.5 hours to complete, depending on your pace.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, there are trails that extend from 5km right up to 13km, making for a full day experience.
There are many beautiful picnic spots where you can have lunch on the trails, and there’s also The Gantry day use area, which is a popular spot for walkers to lay out a picnic rug under the gumtrees.
There are also barbecues onsite along with toilets and water.
The Gantry can be accessed via the trails or by two-wheel drive.
Don’t forget to ensure your phone battery is fully charged because you are sure to capture plenty of beautiful images from your day, from strolling inside the rainforest to the incredible lookouts, which will give you picturesque views overlooking Moreton Bay, and the perfect backdrop for that all important selfie!
If you’re not into hiking, no problem, because there are also plenty of opportunities for you to go horse riding, cycling or four-wheel driving through the National Park, to give you a different perspective of the park.
There are a variety of experiences which are guaranteed to take your breath away!
