A nice little walk through open eucalypt forest and subtropical rainforest – a great place for bird watching.

This lightly trafficked, well-marked trail starts at a small car park below Jolly’s Lookout, on Mount Nebo Road.

This easy circuit is located in the southern section of D’Aguilar National Park and is perfect for families with young children.

The walk includes some small sets of stairs, a wooden footbridge and a rock bridge near a giant strangler fig.

The walk is a haven for bird watchers, particularly in the early morning.

After the walk, head to nearby Jolly’s Lookout for spectacular views across Samford Valley to Moreton Bay.
