Hard track
Starting from South McLean Road, Camp Mountain, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Camp Mountain and Bellbird Grove Day Use Area, exploring the woodland of D’Aguilar National Park along the way. You’ll be welcomed by the exceptional views of Brisbane and Moreton Bay from the lookout, along with the gorgeous Samford Valley in the distance. Remember to lift your head up every once in a while as you hike along the scenic tracks and keep an eye out for the beehives on trees. You can stop for a peaceful picnic in the Bellbird Grove area and make use of the big space with your kids/friends. There may be closures of certain tracks due to controlled burns, so please check them beforehand. Look out for cars along the narrow twisty road section of the track. 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.
