Maiala Rainforest Circuit
Starting from the Maiala Picnic Area off Mt. Glorious Road, Mount Glorious, this walk takes you on a circuit in the dense rainforest of D’aguilar National Park via the Rainforest Circuit track. You’ll truly feel like this gorgeous rainforest is awake and breathing. Pay attention to the distinct tunes of the eastern whipbirds, the creepy-looking strangler figs, and the pademelons running around with tiny babies in their pouches as you’re strolling around. Under rainfall, you may find it surprisingly soothing, rather than unpleasant. With the dense canopy partially protecting you from getting wet, close your eyes and listen to the raindrops hitting the leaves and trees. Considering the undulating track and the amenities provided in the picnic area, this can make for a great family trip. Although keep in mind that you may run into snakes in the rainforest, so keep your kids close. Come early on a quiet day to avoid the crowd and have a better experience. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
