Greene’s Falls, Cyprus Grove circuit, and Rainforest circuit all start from the end of the picnic grounds carpark. The map shows them as separate walks, however to get to Greene’s Falls track you have to first complete half the Rainforest circuit. Completing all 3 tracks is about 5km. There are a number of spots to stop along the way and soak up the atmosphere, and there are plenty of great picnic rocks at the top of the falls.

Within seconds of starting along the path, expect to feel your stresses slip away as you are transported to another world. A world of beauty and serenity.

So much loveliness here.

The rainforest is bursting with life. Trees with majestic presence, vines tenaciously clinging to life.

Listen out for the birds that sound like babies crying – Green Catbird.

The top of the falls is a great spot to stop for a picnic. With a little rock hopping, you can find a lovely spot to sit beside the creek. Be sure to keep an eye on small children.

D’Aguiler National Park is a wonderful place to show off Brisbane to interstate or international visitors. This is a place I could go to again and again.
