Mary Cairncross Reserve

Kondalilla National Park

This walk never fails to please. At a very leisurely stroll you can stop and enjoy the rainforest and spot the pademelons hidden in the bush. Best time to do the walk is early in the morning to get the pademelons and birds and to avoid the tourist buses.
Views across the road overlooking the Glasshouse mountains on a clear day are spectacular.

Comments

Lovely walk. Came across a red belly black snake on the path.

Always nice to take visitors to this little rainforest pocket. Guaranteed to see Pademelons, lots of birds, pythons and other wildlife if you stay away from the crowdy days. The view from the car park of the Glass House Mountains is already worth the outing!

Nice easy walk; gold coin donation. They are about to start works on a new visitor centre. Café is good for a coffee or snack with views across the Glasshouse mountains

The kids have never been so distracted! They loved this walk, as there was so much going on around them.

The bird variety and bold pademelons make this area truly fabulous.

An easy favourite when in the area. Great for kids! We do it as a figure 8 so that we end up doing the longer version of this little track. Loads of pademelons and bird life. Done this track with a mountain buggy pram, and also done it twice with baby in carrier. Very well maintained track. Popular with great facilities and cafe for lunch. Also great views to glasshouse across the road.
