    One of Brisbane’s most famous picnic spots, Jollys Lookout in D’Aguilar National Park is known for its panoramic views over Enoggera Forest Reserve out toward the city, further up to the Glasshouse Mountains and even Moreton Bay. The lookout is named after Brisbane’s first mayor, William Jolly, who thought the sizable, rolling mountain ridge reserve was the perfect place for a picnic and it seems today many are still in agreement with him. The villages of Mount Glorious and Mount Nebo, in the southern section of the D’Aguilar Range, are home to many native plants, animals and birds. A great place to relax and unwind from the pressures of life, the D’Aguilar National Park is reputedly the largest tract of bushland near an Australian state capital and is the closest rainforest to the city. By visiting Thylogale Walking Track or Jolly’s Lookout, you’ll understand just how special D’Aguilar National Park is and why it is referred to as a nature haven. The two mountains are famous for their many bushwalks, most of which are suitable for people of varying fitness levels. As one of the best bushwalking destinations north of Brisbane, Mount Glorious has seven family-friendly tracks that feature boardwalks to safely traverse tricky terrain. Likewise, Mount Nebo offers many tracks that can introduce you to eucalypt and rainforest wonderland of D’Aguilar. Source: www.visitmoretonbayregion.com.au/natural-attractions/joll...
