Rainforest Circuit, Cypress Grove and Greenes Falls.

While I much prefer harder and rockier walks, there were several walks in the D’aguilar National Park that I had on my list to do. D’aguilar National Park is mainly forest, so it’s trees, trees, trees, and the tracks are well-defined and not terribly difficult.
To cross them off my list, I headed out with a friend to the Mt Glorious section and walked into the rainforest. It was an entertaining walk in the cool morning air, with large strangler figs in many places.
The Rainforest Circuit and Cypress Groves were fairly standard fare. Greenes Falls was a great place for a sit down and a chat.
The falls are fenced off, but this didn’t stop me from climbing the fence and rock hopping down to the edge of the falls.
Western Window Track
Across the road from the Cypress Grove walks is another tree laden walk along the side of a steeply sloping cliff.
Morelia Walking Track and Atrax Circuit
Another slow meander through the forest, climbing fallen giant eucalypts and walking through great burnt out trunks.
The trail eventually led to the Mount Nebo lookout, and while there is only a limited viewing area, Moreton Bay is visible in the distance.
Overall, the trails in the D’aguilar National Park aren’t very taxing, but if you enjoy walking in the woods, this is a good place to spend a few hours on a warm sunday afternoon.
