Starting from the car park on Mount Nebo Road, Jollys Lookout, this walk takes you through the rainforest and eucalypt woodland of D’Aguilar National Park via the Thylogale Track. If you’d like to have a pleasant stroll through nature with your kids, look no further. Notice the change in the scenery as you hike along the flat, well-defined track. With picnic areas on both ends, you can plan this walk however you want and still include a peaceful picnic. The woodland is teeming with wildlife, and you’ll be able to see wallabies and red-necked pademelons along with Australian brush turkeys. The thick canopy above provides decent protection from sun and rain, and is home to many bird species such as the yellow-tailed black cockatoo. You may even spot a Large-billed scrubwren if you get lucky. Come early to minimize the noise coming from the road and hear more bird calls. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
