The cool mountain tops and forest flats of Brisbane Forest Park provide a rich and varied habitat for wildlife and a diverse range of plant species. Just 20 minutes from Brisbane city, Brisbane Forest Park comprises part of the 50,000 hectares of protected forest that forms the D’Aguilar range. The park is home to more than 800 species of plants – some rare and endangered – in open eucalypt woodlands, scribbly gum forests and lush subtropical rainforests. Endangered giant barred frogs inhabit the cool mountain streams, gliders soar through the open forest at night, and owls hunt for snakes and possums. For a close-up look at some of the park’s amazing animals, visit the Walk-About Creek Wildlife Centre at Brisbane Forest Park Information Centre. The Go Bush program offers ranger-guided tours and talks, children’s activities and field skills workshops. Discover remote gorges and spectacular lookouts to Brisbane city, Moreton Bay, the Border Ranges and Glasshouse Mountains. Enjoy a picnic or explore a number of beginner to advanced level walking tracks, horse-riding and mountain biking trails, and scenic driving routes accessible to two-wheel-drive vehicles. Getting There: Brisbane Forest Park Information Centre is situated on Mt Nebo Road at The Gap, just 12km from the city centre. A bus service from the city stops at the entrance; however, visitors will need alternative transport to reach the picnic areas, walking tracks and lookouts. Disabled Accessibility: Accessible facilities include the information centre, parts of Bellbird Grove including the Black Wattle shelter shed and Rose Gum toilets, Jolly’s Lookout, Maiala picnic area, Bunyaville, Lomandra and Ironbark Gully.
