D'Aguilar National Park (Southern)
A popular boardwalk atop a dramatic rocky escarpment with views over the western plains.
This moderately trafficked location is found at a signed car park off of Mount Nebo Road, halfway between Mount Nebo and Mount Glorious.
From the car park, stroll along the short loop boardwalk situated atop a rocky outcrop under towering grey and spotted gums.
Read information about the historical timber industry in the region and see remnants of that history, in the form of an old bullock wagon.
At the lookout, breathtaking views over the western plains are offered, including Northbrook Mountain and England Creek (within the park’s boundary), and out past Lake Wivenhoe to Toowoomba, the Lockyer Valley and Great Dividing Range.
This is a great lookout to view as part of a day trip from Brisbane to Mount Glorious, along with Camp Mountain Lookout, Jolly’s Lookout and Wivenhoe Outlook.
Track: The track involves a wooden boardwalk and wooden constructed platform lookout.
Difficulty: The track is suitable for all fitness levels and is wheelchair accessible.
