The Gap

Hidden away on the fringes of Brisbane's leafy outer suburbs lies a secluded community known as The Gap. Surrounded by lush bushland but just 15 minutes drive to the Brisbane city centre, locals at The Gap truly enjoy the best of both worlds.

Visitors are drawn to The Gap to enjoy the natural beauty and serenity of D'Aguilar National Park - over 28,500 hectares of unspoiled bushland offering opportunities for bushwalking, mountain-bike riding, horse-riding, bird-watching, picnicking or camping at a remote site in the hills.

The rich diversity of birds, animals and plant life in this park is surprising, and after enjoying any one of the picturesque walking tracks, it's easy to see why the locals have preserved this unique part of natural Brisbane.

Tuck into a barbecue lunch at Jolly's Lookout and enjoy sweeping views over the Samford Valley. Venture further with a short rainforest walk among strangler figs and climbing vines. Marvel at the sheer size and scale of Wivenhoe Dam on a scenic drive of the area.

Back at The Gap, you can visit the Walkabout Creek Wildlife Centre - a living showcase of the amazing wildlife diversity of south-east Queensland. Get up close and personal with the reptiles, frogs, mammals, fish and birds that call this part of the world home.

Accommodation is the area is limited to holiday rentals and homestays, however a good selection of hotels and motels can be found in the suburbs closer to the Brisbane city centre.
