Where is it: About 30 minutes' drive past The Gap, Brisbane
What's it all about: A relatively easy bushwalk through some amazing forest - and so close to Brisbane as well!
Tell me more: Pitta Circuit at Boombana is one of the many walks throughout D'Aguilar National Park! It's an easy walk but a lovely little break from the city and it's so close, you really do feel like you've left the city for good when you are walking around this short, 1 km trail. It's a small loop which starts in eucalypt bush before slowly the forest changes into a temperate rainforest and it really is a lovely spot. Although it's a short walk and it would not be classed as challenging by any means, it did take us around an hour to complete as we were forever stopping to marvel at the amazing trees, searching for beautiful fungi, or trying to spot some wildlife in the dense forest!
Amenities: Picnic tables and barbeques at the start of the walk! 👍👍👍
Parking: Free parking! 👍👍👍
Access: It's a walk but not too challenging - not for wheeled devices! 👍👍
Best for: A great start for families to experience hiking in this wonderful national park! 👍👍👍
Summary: Pitta Circuit is a great introduction to bushwalking! Not too long or difficult, but great for a bush escape! 👍👍👍
Hints: Jolly's Lookout is not a far drive from here and has some magnificent views over the city!
