Morelia walking track, D'Aguilar National Park

Multiple Locations

The Morelia walking track is in southern D'Aguilar National Park.

Starting from Manorina, this walk explores patches of cool rainforest and open eucalypt forest before reaching Mount Nebo lookout. Discover wet eucalypt forest and groves of cabbage tree palms, their huge fan-shaped leaves spreading overhead like umbrellas. Listen for the booming ‘wallock-a-woo’ and ‘book-a-roo’ call of wompoo fruit-doves calling in the canopy.

Catch your breath at the natural rock outcrop of Mount Nebo lookout and admire magnificent views over Samford Valley, Mount Tempest and Moreton Bay. On a clear day, the Moreton Island sand dunes appear to strangely hover on the horizon.

If you're keen to keep walking, Manorina is also the starting point for the short and family-friendly Atrax circuit.

This six kilometre return walking track is mostly gently-sloping and well-defined track but it is quite steep in some places. Return along the same track. You need about two hours to complete this moderately difficult grade track.
