Thylogale Track

Nice easy hike/trail run on a rainy day, as mentioned by others definitely longer than the 8km return. I combined it with the two 1km circuits at each end and did 11km all up.

A lovely and easy hike, about 11km from Jolly’s Lookout to the Mountain Cafe and back. Lots of wildlife including pademelons, a snake, king parrot, a fantail and a lace monitor.

Great walk. Did it with my 5yo son

Easy walk, if you start at The Mountain Café, the return journey is about 10 Klm. Green and lush, good paths.

A lovely walk - lots of rainforest vegetation :) Pretty flat and easy.

Started from Jolly's Lookout
Nice easy walk with a couple of very nice views, some great looking trees and a mild amount of wildlife
Saw a scrub/bush turkey at the turn around point who was very happy to see we had apples
Saw 2 x Pademelon (keep your ears open)
Note* If using a phone to track your steps/distance, it appears that the track is a bit longer one way - was stopped by a couple to confirm if they had to keep going as the phone told them they had done over 4km. (both phones said approx 4.7km)

Really nice track, easy grade, no hills and beautiful surroundings.

Beautiful walk

As most of the previous posters have said, this is a pretty flat track. Was nice and cool for a hot'ish summers day as there's plenty of rainforest coverage. Saw quite a few Pademelon's on the walk. Started at the Jolly's Lookout end of the walk. We added on the 1km loop at the other end. Recommend for a nice easy walk.

Nice relatively flat walk close to Brisbane.

Fantastic family walk - we walk with kids (5, 9 and 11) and this one is one of our family favourites. The track is well maintained, nice and flat - all up a very easy walk when you just need some quiet outdoor time. Walking at the pace of a 5 yr old it usually takes us about 45 mins each way.

Great walk. We were looking for a different one but did this instead. Not hard, not any really slope just gentle walk through nice rain forest. We added th1km rainforest circuit at the other end before heading back.

Nice view near the start of the track. Plenty of interesting plants and birds around. I recommend returning via the same track. The road is a lot quicker but steeper and a bit dangerous due to the traffic and minimal walking space.

Easy walk - flat - very obvious track.
Great views of the city & Moreton Is, 10mins from the southern end of the track.

I've done this walk many times. It's a lovely flat walk that takes about 2 hours to complete.

Bobbe on Jan, 2016

Very enjoyable walk through forest, had something to eat at Boombanna cafe at Mt Nebo & then retraced our steps. Easy 2 hours!

Deb on 28 Jul, 2015

Nice walk. As I came to a clearing I was expecting to be looking west but was surprised to be looking out over towards Moreton Island. It was an overcast day, that is my excuse anyway.

Grumps on 24 Feb, 2014

Easy walk in beautiful rainforest-like bushland. Note that this track is one way so it is an 8km walk.
