Brooyar State Forest is located just 10kms north of Gympie along the Bruce Highway. The forest features sandstone cliffs, tall eucalypt forests and hoop pine plantations.
Many visitors come to the Brooyar State Forest to head to the Point Pure Lookout on top of the sandstone cliffs to get a view of the surrounding hinterland. This walk is a short 300m return trip.

If coming to the park, check out Glastonbury Creek which flows through the camping area, and you may even be lucky enough to spot platypus, crayfish, freshwater turtles, eels and fish in the creek.
Abseiling is a popular activity within the park with many climbing enthusiasts and organised groups (with qualified leaders) trying their skills on the bluffs at Brooyar’s Point Pure and Eagles Nest abseiling sites.
Camping is popular here at the banks of Glastonbury Creek. You will find open grassy areas at the base of a hill and the maximum capacity for this area is 120 people. These campsites are suitable for those with tents, caravans or camper trailers. Fire rings and composting toilets are provided, but campers must bring their own drinking water. Open fires are allowed, but check local information about fire-ban days during summer.
Bookings are required prior to arrival and dogs are permitted but must remain under control and on a leash at all times. Camping permits are required and fees apply. A camping tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site. You can access the park from it’s southern entrance by taking the Gympie—Woolooga Road and turning right into Diggins Road and onto Greendale Road. Follow the signs to the camping and day-use area.
