Mount Mee Forest Drive
D'Aguilar National Park (Mount Mee)
A great drive through a range of forest types, with options to walk to natural swimming holes, waterfalls and lookouts along the way.
This moderately trafficked drive starts along Neurum Creek Road, just past The Gantry, which is located at the end of Sellin Road in the Mount Mee section of D’Aguilar National Park.
The tracks winds through a range of native and plantation forests, including eucalypt and some beautiful sections of hoop pines.
The track involves plenty of small hills, rocky sections, dips and rutted out sections.
The loop track is about 19 kilometres, however a 15 kilometre extension to the Broadwater swimming hole and picnic area is also possible.
Basic directions: from The Gantry, turn right into Neurum Creek Drive to start the Mount Mee Forest Drive. Continue on this road, which only has a few short, well-signed side-roads - Bulls Falls on the left, Mill Rainforest Walk on the right and Rocky Hole on the left.
Then turn left onto the L Traverse. At the T-junction with Lovedays Road, either head right to Broadwater, or left to return to the starting point.
The track can also be paired with the Western Escarpment Forest Drive, the exit of which is passed when close to the return starting point. If pairing these tracks, head to the associated activity page and read the directions in order to do this drive in the correct direction.
It is recommended to have a trail map when heading into the forest trails (click the "View Map" button on this page), as there are a number of side-tracks from the Forest Drive that are considerably more difficult.
Difficulty: The drive is great for beginners. The majority of the drive is gravel roads, with plenty of small hills, rocky sections, dips and rutted out sections. High-range 4WD is recommended for much of the track.
Direction: This drive is a loop track and it is recommended to drive in an anticlockwise direction. Note that there are multiple side tracks that branch off the main drive. It is recommended that a map of the trails be carried at all times and that offline maps be downloaded onto your phone for navigation assistance.
The drive starts along Neurum Creek Road, near The Gantry, which is at the end of Sellin Road in Mount Mee, 1.25 hours northwest of Brisbane.
A high-clearance 4WD is required.
Note: it is also possible to start this drive from Woodford, coming into the park from Rasmussen Road.

The drive can be completed year-round, however like all 4WD tracks, conditions are likely to be considerably more difficult after heavy rain.
