Detailed Information

Mt. Mee is part of the D’Aguilar National Park and is a great place for a day trip in your 4x4. The trip will take you and your 4wd through some subtropical rainforest all the way up to amazing lookouts on Mt. Mee. There are also beautiful water holes and campgrounds. Enjoy the forest drives and walking trails through this beautiful place. The D’Aguilar National Park is located just north-west of the city of Brisbane. The national park is divided into two sections, north and south. The southern part is mostly accessible by car whereas the majority of the northern part is 4wd access only. Mt. Mee is a beautiful mountain located in the northern section of the National Park; hence the northern section is often just referred to as Mt. Mee. Mt. Mee is definitely worth doing for a day trip. If all the tracks were open, you would have fun to stay for a weekend and do some exploring. Unfortunately most of the adventurous tracks are often closed for one reason or another. I recommend that you check before you go because it certainly is an amazing place to spend a weekend if the tracks and campsites are open. Otherwise, stick to a day trip. There is plenty to see on the main tracks through the national park for one day. The main tracks are suitable for any 4wd vehicle. They are pretty much just dirt roads. If any of the forest tracks are open, you may need a more capable vehicle. The Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM), have a really good page on the D’Aguilar National Park The Gantry is usually the first port of call. Here you will find a nice day use area. It is accessible by 2wd vehicles so can often be quite busy. There is a nice picnic area there, which is a nice place to have a barbeque. From the Gantry there are two nice walking tracks that start and finish there. Also, check out the remains of an old saw mill. Falls lookout looks north over the Bulls falls and the beautiful Neurum Valley. The Somerset lookout obviously looks west over the Somerset Dam. Sunsets here are incredible. Rocky Hole and Broadwater are nice water holes that are a great place to stop and have a swim to freshen up after a day on the road. Broadwater has a small day use area which makes it a good place to stop for lunch. There are a few really nice forest drives that I recommend doing. Check out this DERM map to help get around. http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/parks/daguilar/mount-mee-trail-map.pdf Check for road closures on the park alerts section of the DERM website. For those who like to get out of the car and go for a walk, there are heaps of walking tracks to do. They are listed on the DERM website at the bottom of the ‘about D’Aguilar National Park’ page. There are walks for all sorts of fitness levels Unfortunately most of the camping facilities are often closed. You will need to check the park alerts link on the above website for information on which campsites are open. If you get the pleasure of camping in any of the campsites, you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. They range from drive in with septic toilets to walk in with no facilities. Camping permits are the usual $5.30 each or $21.30 per family. Details on how to get permits are available on the DERM website also. You do not currently need a 4wd permit to drive in the D’Aguilar National Park. Check the DERM website for up to date permit information.
