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 tranquillity and beauty.

Come and enjoy an exciting journey through the new Rainforest Discovery Centre at Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve.  

The Cafe is currently closed and the opening date for the new Cafe is yet to be confirmed. In the meantime please bring a picnic and enjoy the surrounds.

Take a relaxing walk along our rainforest tracks from 7am to 6pm (Gold Coin donation appreciated).  Entry to the new after hours rainforest is located on the right at the bike racks in front of the Rainforest Discovery Centre.

Make the most of your visit to the Reserve
