Westside Track, Maiala

The Gap, Brisbane Area

The Westside Track is located within D'Aguliar National Park (south D'Aguilar section). The Maiala area was the first national park declared on the D'Aguilar Range. Originally cleared for a timber mill, Maiala is now a spacious and peaceful place to visit. Some machinery and remnant hoop pine plantation remain as evidence of Maiala's loud and laborious past. Enjoy a picnic, barbecue or rainforest walk.

The 6.4 kilometre Westside Track is of a moderately difficult grade. Allow two to three hours to complete the walk. Enjoy a cool, scenic walk through subtropical rainforest. This track branches off the Western Window track. Access is from the top of the Maiala day-use area (the southern side of Mount Glorious Road). From Maiala day-use area walk 600 metres to the Western Window, before walking down to a level track perched on the side of a steep slope that finishes at Lawton Road. Parking is available at Maiala car park. The Westside track can also be accessed from Lawton Road and Joyners Ridge Road.
