Easy track
Starting from the Boombana Picnic Ground car park off Mount Nebo Road, Mount Nebo, this walk takes you on a circuit in the open eucalypt woodland and rainforest of D’Aguilar National Park via the Pitta Circuit Walk, featuring heaps of informative signposts along the way. Enjoy a pleasant stroll through the rainforest as you learn lots of things about the fauna, flora and history of the area. The colossal strangler fig midway is surrounded by a boardwalk that is full of information for you to read. Additionally, there are red-necked pademelons and interesting bird species residing in the area. The well-signposted and flat track coupled with the scenic picnic area makes this a great destination for family trips. Come early to minimize the noise coming from the road and have a better chance of spotting the said animals. 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.
