So nice and relaxing, volunteer guides were fantastic and took time to chat and explain things to us. Even saw a snake relaxing in the sun.

“Must go and visit”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

What a great place to visit we went today Easter Saturday and it was quite a busy place but for a gold coin donation we spend a few hours SLOWLY walking through the forest paths with cameras in hand got great shots of wallabys python and lots of different birds as well as lot of flora. Only down side was Adults who cannot walk quietly in this setting yet still expect to see wild life

“Spontaneous Adventure ”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

We had a great experience. Everything is well maintained, signage everywhere, kids playground, BBQ facilities, Cafe, and a beautiful look out towards the Glass House Mountains. The walk took approximately 30 minutes. We arrived at 8am and the temperature was perfect. We saw four Pademelons. The tree's are giants. I would just recommend bringing some bug repellant and maybe a light jumper as not much sunlight reaches the rainforest floor. People of all ages could do this walk. We finished off with a beautiful breakfast at the Cafe although a little pricey we were still happy because we are on holidays! And had such a great morning.

“Fantastic and Beautiful”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

This park was recommended to us by a well known local. We were not disappointed...beautiful rainforest to walk through, few pademelons hopping while we walked along the trail. Great views over the Glasshouse Mountains too.

“Great place to stop for walk & a cuppa”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

We did the drive from Eumundi thru Kenilworth, Maleny and Montville and stopped in here after a tip from the Noosa Tourist Info centre.
Brilliant views of the Glasshouse Mountains, lovely rainforest walk and a really good cup of tea and macadamia caramel slice. Definitely worth the small detour from the town centre, even if it's just to take photos or have a cuppa.
