Discover the scenic forests north—west of Gympie in Brooyar State Forest. Sandstone cliffs, tall eucalypt forests, rainforests and hoop pine plantations feature here. A lookout point on top of the cliffs provides an impressive western view. Popular abseiling sites are located here too.

Glastonbury Creek flows beside the small camping area which offers a great setting for a quiet getaway camping experience. Creek life and rainforest trees feature here.

The shallow, sandy stretches of Glastonbury Creek are home to platypus, crayfish, long-armed shrimp, freshwater turtles, eels and fish.

During summer, flowering trees adjoining the camping area colour the forest. Look for rich red and yellow flowers in black bean trees Castanospermum australe and vivid orange flowers in silky oak trees Grevillea robusta. Across the creek a grove of white cedar Melia azedarach trees become a mass of yellow as their leaves change in autumn.
