Brisbane Forest Park situated on the outskirts of Brisbane provides a pleasant weekend drive through through picturesque countryside to Mt Glorious. Maiala Rainforest has a lovely expanse of grassed picnic area as well as covered tables and toilet facilities. Closeby is a rainforest with a choice of three walking tracks.
Once a saw mill, Maiala now provides visitors the opportunity to walk amongst magnificent tall trees reaching effortlessly to the sky and beautiful ferny on the forest floor. Enterprising rangers cut steps through one enormous tree which had fallen across the path.
Nearby in the village of Mt Glorious a must stop is Maiala Rainforest Teahouse & Restaurant where one can enjoy a good meal or morning or afternoon tea served by welcoming staff. Seating is provided inside and out where entertainment is observing the abundance of bird life in their native habitat.
