A step away from the bustle of Brisbane are the attractions of the Brisbane hinterland. The heavily forested hills of the D’Aguilar Range create a subtropical haven just 20 minutes west of the city, with the main access point in the hamlet of Mount Glorious in Brisbane Forest Park. Head to the Valley of the Lakes near Esk and even further north-west to the South Burnett, which has diverse crops and heritage villages. Here the landscape, including stands of rare pine rainforest, is preserved in the Bunya Mountains National Park. Kids will love this area too, as there are many opportunities for encounters with native animals.
