A new article published by We Are Explorers on the best overnight hikes Near Brisbane

After a rough outdoor season that saw raging bushfires followed by park closures due to COVID-19, Queensland’s National Parks are now (mostly) open again.

Queensland offers incredible overnight hikes in some of the world’s most beautiful natural places – and they’re just two hours’ drive or less from Brisbane. You can camp in the ancient Gondwana rainforests of Lamington National Park, or high on the mountain ranges of the Scenic Rim.

Many of the wildest camps near Brisbane have a level of accessibility that belie their remoteness. Few cities can boast overnight hikes that allow you to get so far into the wilderness so quickly.

But fear not! If you were hoping to find an easy hike for your very first overnighter, try out a remote camp for the first time, or just head to a drive-in campground where you can hike without a pack, Saphira’s got you covered.

Let’s launch into 14 of the best overnight hikes near Brisbane!

List includes:

  1. Mt Barney National Park
  2. Main Range National Park
  3. D’Aguilar National Park, and
  4. Wyaralong Dam
