Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Brisbane Region / Brisbane / D'Aguilar National Park
D'Aguilar is a national park in Queensland, Australia, 31 km northwest of Brisbane. The southern part of the park was formerly known as Brisbane Forest Park, while the northern part of the park is at Mount Mee.
The park contains expanses of eucalypt woodland, sheltered pockets of subtropical rainforest, remote gorges and spectacular views to Moreton Bay and the Glass House Mountains. The popular Walkabout Creek Visitor Centre is located at the edge of the park. There are two formal, vehicle accessible camping areas in the Mount Mee section and eight remote bush camping sites (accessible only by walking) in the southern D'Aguilar (formerly Brisbane Forest Park) section.
Woodlands and dry eucalypt forests predominate on the drier, shallower soils of the park's foothills. Spotted Gum (Corymbia variegata) and Narrow-leaved Ironbark are two of the main species. There are also small areas of heath and ridges dominated by grass trees (Xanthorrhoea spp). Remnant pockets of lowland rainforest occur in the valleys along some of the watercourses.
At higher altitudes the forests become more complex due to the increased rainfall and generally deeper soils. These mid-altitude forests are dominated by Grey Gum, Pink Bloodwood and Brush Box. Occasional rainforest species are also present and there is a thick understorey of ferns, vines and shrubs.

D'Aguilar National Park Reviews
A national park on way to Mt Nebo, with extensive forests, some waterways cutting through and several resting places for vehicles on the way. more »
We went for a day drive and were amazed at how beautiful it is. Not far from Brisbane CBD but felt like you were a world apart. Was a cooler rainy day which added to the feeling of being further away.... more »
Lovely quiet and thanks to some rain lush and green. But as far as walks go, there are others that I'd recommend first.
