Paradise At D’Aguilar National Park

Sundays are the perfect days to relax in the park, read an old book, take an afternoon nap and be a little lazy without feeling guilty.

Today I took a walk through the blissful south section of D’Aguilar National Park (formerly Brisbane Forest Park). It is amazing that this enormous piece of paradise lies so close to the bustling city within Brisbane. Taking time out for this bush track regularly, I like to think of it as a family secret. I am now passing on this gift to you.

I took the Araucaria path and as usual, I was not disappointed.


The gum trees stood tall and large creating shade over the pathway and housing more than 240 species of birds. The ones I love to watch the most are the Australian Logrunner’s. Their small splash of vibrant colour radiates throughout the green forest.

As I walked on I forgot about the time, the chores waiting for me at home and any worries in my mind. The Australian forest mesmerised every soul finding its way through the winding path today. I stopped for ducks and turtles in the scenic Enoggera Reservoir, nests of snake eggs and the Great Barred Frog.

I am happy to be sharing this piece of paradise with you all and hope that you can come down to experience something so beautiful and serene.

Sharing the love,
