Small gold coin donation to get in. This walk is very easy, really pretty and pretty much entirely shaded by the tree canopy. Saw heaps of wildlife, little wallabies, birds, reptiles, and insects. Very family friendly!

Excellent trail & pram friendly! We saw lots of birds, lizards, snakes and wallabies. We took the longest route and we had so much fun that it felt like we were finished in no time at all! We will definitely be visiting this one again!

WalkingFeeGreat!

A very easy walk through the sub-tropical rain forrest. I went with my partner at 4pm, so the science centre was closed, but we saw lots of pademelons and you could hear so many different birds along the way. one bird/animal call was like a baby's cry, it had us worried until we heard the call returned from 3 different directions. Great easy walk.

$2 and worth every penny. Take it slow to spot the birds and wallabys. Very nice entrance building with great displays. Good cafe with fantastic views of the Glasshouse Mountains. Big carpark but pretty full even on weekday.

Lovely trail, great for kids with plenty of picnic areas and a playground nearby. The views from the cafe are nice but it is a bit pricey.

this is a stunning walk! there is a good coin donation for entry that helps keep this place up & running, there are a number of different native animals & bugs out there so it's perfect if you'd like to see some cute critters, as well as a multitude of stunning native plants. This one is a fairly moderate walk some places don't have wheelchair access but the main trail does.

Great for kids, beautiful section of Australia’s rainforest. We saw some wallabies and lots of birds. At the end of your visit make sure to sit in the mountain view cafe at the visitor’s center. Stunning views and great pastries!

Easy walking, good for kids and great for birding. Once we brought the pram along but it only had smallish wheels, not a good idea haha

Always a great place to experience the peace and calm of the rain forest. Everyone should visit Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and its rainforest walks. Good for all people of ages and abilities. A place to build resilience.
