There is a wealth of unspoiled natural beauty in Brisbane, and it’s all yours to enjoy at no cost. The landscape around Brisbane is so varied, from sandy islands to dense bushland to heritage-listed rainforests, that every day spent exploring will reveal something new. Whatever it is you’re looking for, one of the many national and state parks in Brisbane is the place to find it.
Lamington National Park
Lamington National Park provides a stunning backdrop for your travels across Yugambeh territory, with its verdant rainforests, ancient trees, and breathtaking vistas. A World Heritage site, the Gondwana Rainforests are waiting to be explored. You can go on a hike to the beautiful Elabana or Chalahn Falls.
Mt. Barney National Park
The remains of the old Focal Peak Shield Volcano, which erupted 24 million years ago, are located in Mt. Barney National Park, which is teeming with unusual creatures and plants. At some of South East Queensland’s highest peaks, visitors can observe the ever-changing vegetation. This park’s trails require a moderate level of physical fitness.
Moogerah Peaks National Park
