At the northern end of the D’Aguilar Range, Mt Mee State Forest and Forest Reserve contains beautiful open forests, scribbly gum forests, rainforest remnants, hoop pine plantations and picturesque creek scenery.
The 90 minute drive from Brisbane to Mt Mee takes you through some of the most beautiful rural countryside. You can enjoy a picnic, go bushwalking, camp and enjoy the magnificent views over Lake Somerset and Wivenhoe.
A popular place to picnic is the Gantry picnic area where you can see the remains of the old sawmill which operated here until 1981. Enjoy the view over the picturesque Neurum Valley and Bulls Falls from the Falls Lookout, 1km past the picnic area. Access to the lookout is by a 500m walking track.
Choose from two small camping areas in the forest. Neurum Creek is 6km from the Gantry picnic area. Tent sites, toilets, fire rings and water are provided. You will need to supply your own firewood. You can also camp beside Neurum Creek at Archer camping area, 16km from the Gantry picnic area along Loveday’s Road.
