“Beautiful Views.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The views of the glasshouse mountains is beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed the rainforest walk and the flora and fauna. Very tranquil work and the staff are very friendly and insiteful. Would have loved to see a richmond redwing butterfly, maybe next time. Loved the walk

“Great spot to view the Glasshouse Mountains”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Love the view from the road to the glasshouses. Toilets available and family friendly. Good open spaces with lots of grass and shade.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

What a lovely area! We had a lovely walk through the rainforest, (gold coin donations are appreciated), being so hot it was lovely to cool off amongst the trees and we spotted a couple of little Pademelons camoflaged amongst the foliage. Some of the trees are magnificent, all different shapes and sizes. It really is a lovely walk.
There is also a little cafe at the entrance and a lovely picnic area which was being used by lots of people.
If you take a short walk across the road, you are looking down on the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains.
Lovely place!

“great reserve but lacking in information”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

With all volunteer staff you can't be too critical but the rainforest walk would benefit considerably from an information sheet pinting out what you are seeing.
