“Beautiful relaxing place to walk with kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We took our kids on a scenic walk through Mary Cairncross and it was a perfect natural forest for our family to explore listening to birds, wallabies and hearing the sounds of the natural forest. Facilities and museum are excellent

“glasshouse mountains viewing point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

the views from this lookout were spectacular. There is a full explanation of the glass house mountains story in the kiosk and there is a lovely picnic area, or you can buy something from the kiosk

“Beautiful rainforest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We wanted to do a couple of easy walks, this was great about 50mins at a fairly leisurely rate, the quality of the rainforest was at least as good as the daintree in my opinion

“As good as Daintree......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

An easy walk through the rainforest, a leisurely walk would take about an hour. You can sit and have a great coffee and cake while viewing the Glasshouse mountains! Good picnic spot. Playground for kids a bonus.
