The national parks in this section of Brisbane are stunning. Bush walks are easy level and suitable for most people I would say. Stop off an jollys lookout and head down the hill slightly and you'll find a couple of walks. One circuit of 1.5km and another 8km return. (We did that in 2 hours and are only moderate fitness level. Take Water with you. Also awesome for a picnic. The 385 bus gets you as far as the gap but to make your way up mount nebo you'd need a friend to take you or a rental car. Mount Nebo, Mount glorious and surrounding areas are a beautiful way to spend the day.

I have only explored a small percentage of the D’Aguilar National Park. Primarily I have hiked around Jolly's Lookout, Walk about Creek, Manorina, Bellbird Grove, Ironbark Gully and Mt Cootha.
Each hike offers a unique experience and I recommended trying as many as you can. Tourists should consult the National Parks Website or information centre to find out how challenging each hike is and select the right hike for their own abilities.
A launch area for kayaks and other non-powered light water craft has been established at Walk About Creek. Tourist should also consider the Mt Cootha lookout, one of the best and most well known points to view the Brisbane Skyline and beyond.

I visited here briefly for a walk around the park whilst I was in the area exploring a few other attractions. I was actually very impressed by how large and beautiful the National Park was. We originally stopped at Enogerra Reserve, a great place for a walk, swim or canoe. There are two walking paths available (one at 700m and one at approx 5km). Both are relatively easy on good walking paths so would be suitable for all levels of fitness. You will be able to get some really nice photography of rainforests if you are an avid photographer. Additionally you will also see a little bit of wildlife along the way. Certainly bring some sunscreen, water and insect repellent. Parking is available onsite and the attraction doesn't have a cost. Plan to spend about 1-2 hours depending on what you want to do. The walk itself is about an hour at Enogerra reservoir - there are other sites and look outs to explore. Overall a great place to enjoy the great outdoors.

Having lived in Brisbane for YEARS, I had absolutely no idea there was such a beautiful oasis so close to the city. It's a great place for a swim, short walk, bicycle ride, and even overnight trek. The visitor centre, although limited, does provide ranger talks and wildlife feeding presentations. But best of all is the nature itself. Goannas and Moore Hens to name but just a few are the animals you're likely to encounter alone either of the short walking trails.
