This circuit walk in Dooragan National Park starts at North Brother summit picnic area and takes you to the Diamond Head lookout. The northern part of the loop is accessible. The southern part leads through a lush rainforest. Let us begin by acknowledging the Birpai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
