Brisbane Nature Tours

    Explore the natural beauty of the Moreton Bay Region with a series of unique journeys and a Brisbane sightseeing tour curated by Brisbane Nature Tours.

    Whether you’re up for a full day of hiking, a gentle stroll or prefer to take in the sights in airconditioned comfort and sample the wares at a local winery, Brisbane Nature Tours has you covered with the perfect Brisbane sightseeing tour.

    While they have carefully created four distinctly different tours to suit all ages, you can also arrange a bespoke experience.

    Brisbane Nature Tours cater to small, personalised groups and they relish in sharing their love and passion for the environment with guests. They can pick you up from your accommodation or meet you at a chosen location - it's your choice!

    Originally from the Netherlands, owner Anita Greeck worked as a park ranger, and has immersed herself in the Moreton Bay Region. Her passion for its natural beauty shines through as she shows off the region’s hidden treasures and takes a fresh look at favourite haunts.

    Mount Glorious to Mount Mee

    Enjoy stunning views from the comfort of Brisbane Nature Tours' comfy car, taking in a subtropical rainforest of the D’Aguilar National Park.

    This Brisbane sightseeing tour takes in two lookouts - The Western Window, with sweeping views to the west, and the Wivenhoe Outlook – before heading to Somerset Dam for lunch by the water.

    Along the way, you’ll see remote farmland and vast views of grassland.

    Then it’s back in the car for a drive via Kilcoy to Mount Archer, to visit the award-winning Woongooroo Estate - for a wine tasting.

    From the winery the tour heads to Mount Mee lookout, with views over the Glass House Mountains, taking in lush green hills and open grassland with cattle and stunning old trees.

    Maiala Rainforest Tour

    Learn from experienced guides as you wander along a 5km trail beneath the canopy of Maiala Rainforest. The tour will show you the flora and fauna of a subtropical rainforest with its magical and oh so grand trees. The Brisbane Nature Tours team will help you hear for calls of the Whipbird, Catbird and Woompo Dove.

    If you're lucky you might even spot a smaller-sized member of the kangaroo family called Pademelon who also live in Maiala.

    This trail will take approximately 3 hours, providing ample time to learn about the area and capture that insta worthy pic!

    You will then rest and recharge with a picnic lunch in the beautiful Maiala Day Use Area.

    After lunch, then take a stroll on the western side of the mountain where you will visit a few scenic lookouts.

    Bellthorpe Rainforest Tour

    If you like to explore the rainforest with no crowds, this might just be the tour for you!

    Start the tour at Bellthorpe Stays, a 400-acre private property featuring tranquil walking tracks, trickling waterfalls, a diverse array of bird life and wildlife, and lush green rainforest. Normally, day visitors are not permitted but Brisbane Nature Tours have secured private access for you to enjoy the property for the morning.

    Spot koalas, echidnas and if you're lucky - a platypus in their favourite creek as you walk the peaceful Rainforest Track.

    Be amazed by the cascading waters of Heritage Waterfalls before heading to the Resource Centre to view the impressive lily ponds ands frog species.

    Stop off for lunch at Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and enjoy a tasty lunch and a cuppa before going for another short rainforest walk in the Reserve.

    Tawny Trails 4WD Tour

    Experience some of the most magical nature areas of the main Tawny Trails with a 4WD tour in the D'Aguilar National Park.

    After picking you up from your location, you'll visit the recreation area of the Gantry before taking a short stroll through open subtropical rainforest. Groves of Piccabeen Palm and Sydney blue gums are the highlights of this walk.

    Next, hop back in the 4WD and take in the stunning views of the national park as you tour to a hidden rainforest gem - Rocky Hole.

    Once you've completed the tour, it's your choice whether you'd like to be taken to galleries, exhibitions, wineries or other attractions on the Tawny Trail

    Kangaroos, Mangroves & the Ocean

    Brisbane Nature Tours' Coastal Tour encompasses three very different experiences of nature, incorporating the majesty of land and sea birds, mangroves and kangaroos.

    Start this Brisbane sightseeing tour with a visit to see mobs of kangaroos feeding in open grassland and then enjoy a short mangrove walk – keep an eye out for waders and water birds – before heading to Osprey House, which is home to several lookouts and loads of information about various habitats.

    The Coastal Tour continues with a drive across one of the longest bridges in Australia, the Houghton Highway, with glorious views of Hays Inlet and the Glasshouse Mountains.

    There are two more mangrove lookouts on the way to the Gayundah shipwreck at Woody Point.

    Driving further around the coast, stop to admire spectacular view across to Moreton Island and dip your toes in the water and do some beachcombing.

    The Brisbane Nature Tour experience ends at Scarborough Boat Harbour, with an abundance of fresh seafood to enjoy.
