Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve

Come and explore the rainforest

Welcome to the natural jewel of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve comprises 55 hectares of subtropical rainforest, overlooking the Glass House Mountains National Landscape.  A remnant of the rainforests that once covered the Blackall Range, the Reserve is a living museum of diverse plant and animal life which will delight with its tranquility and beauty. Step back in time in our Rainforests Through Time display, take a relaxing walk along our rainforest tracks from 7am to 6pm (Gold Coin donation appreciated) have a picnic or barbeque, or relax at the Café  (except Mondays).

Childrens playground.   Please note the childrens playground is closed for maintenance and renewal until 30th April 2014.
