D’Aguilar National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities


“The Bush at Brisbane's Doorstep”

The year 2009 saw the D’Aguilar National Park expand from 2,400 to 38,000 hectares and is now the largest national park within 20 kilometres of a capital CBD in Australia.

Taking in bushland areas around Enoggera, Mount Glorious, Mount Mee, D’Aguilar and north Brisbane and much of the Brisbane Forest Park, the park provides permanent protection for the local flora and fauna, as well as access to a wide range of activities for visitors to the national park.

The park is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, with over 800 plant species, that make up the lush rainforest, tall wet eucalypt forest and open woodlands. It is also an important wildlife corridor to creatures such as the giant barred frog and koalas.

The Jinibara People are the traditional owners of the land.

There are any number of things to do in this location bushwalking tracks, picnic areas for day trippers, horse riding, mountain biking, glorious mountain views, clean mountain air to clear the lungs, rainforest areas, historic sites, scenic 4WD drives with views back to the city, camping, wildlife and more.

Vegetation includes lush rainforest, tall wet eucalypt forest and open woodlands

Birds and animals abound throughout the park and visitor facilities are first rate. Because the park is so close to the city visitor numbers are very high during peak seasons such as school holidays arrive early if you are going for a picnic as the best spots are usually taken.

Wheelchair accessibility
Wheelchair-accessible facilities in the park include the information centre, parts of Bellbird Grove (Black Wattle shelter shed and Rose Gum toilets), Jolly's Lookout, Maiala picnic area, Bunyaville, Lomandra and Ironbark Gully. For additional information on these and other accessible facilities, contact the Brisbane Forest Park Information Centre.
