Jollys Lookout & Boombana Park, Mt Nebo Brisbane Forest Park

Directions:   Jollys Lookout lies in D’Aguilar National Park. Drive west from The Gap along Waterworks Rd which turns into Mt Nebo Rd. Jollys Lookout is well marked; it is 18km from the Settlement Road round about, and 12 km past the Bellbird Grove turn off. Boombana Park is a further 1.5km and is just before Mt Nebo Village. and gives a good viewpoint and picnic area with a chance of Glossy Black Cockatoo. The small parking lot by the turn off to Jollys Lookout is the start of the 4 km Thylogale Track which leads to the Boombana Park Picnic Area. The Thylogale Track is excellent for rain forest birds such a Wompoo and Rose-crowned Fruit Dove, Green Catbird, Satin Bowerbird and Pale-yellow Robin. (I normally walk along the track and back along the road but it can be quite busy with lots of Baby Boomer (and younger) Bikies.)
