About Mount Mee

A small rural village located north of Dayboro in the D’Aguilar Range, Mount Mee is very popular with weekend day-trippers thanks to the vast range of 4WD tracks, bushwalks, scenic lookouts, watering holes, camping spots, parks and picnic spots to explore.

From on top of Mount Mee, expansive and picturesque views of seaside Caloundra and pristine Moreton Bay can be savoured.

The Mount Mee Forest Reserve contains huge expanses of rainforest and eucalypt forest and includes many picturesque bushwalks and four-wheel drive tracks. Clear water creeks, lush rainforest canopies and stunning views make the Reserve a perfect place to unwind and get back to nature.

Bushwalkers can explore beautiful, open forests, scribbly gum forests, rainforest remnants, hoop pine plantations and cascading rainforest creeks.

The ultimate picnic spot in Mount Mee is The Gantry with grassy areas under the shade of gumtrees, for those that enjoy a sit-down blanket lunch, or alternatively there are a number of picnic tables and shelters available for you to use. The Gantry is also a significant historical site in the Moreton Bay Region, previously the site was an active sawmill producing timbers for the region including those used for the Hornibrook Highway connecting Redcliffe and Sandgate.

Rocky Hole located in the Mount Mee State Forest was voted as one of the top attractions to visit near Brisbane. Rocky Hole is a stunning swimming hole etched into the natural contours of Mount Mee’s granite filled gullies. Surrounded by open eucalypt forest, Rocky Hole is a picturesque location to take a dip on a hot summer day.

History of Mount Mee

Mount Mee was first known to the indigenous inhabitants of the area as Dahmongah, a word meaning "flying squirrel" or glider. The English name Mount Mee was supposedly derived from another local word mia mia, meaning a lookout or view.

English settlers began arriving in the area around 1873. Timber harvesting was the primary source of interest in Mount Mee with a sawmill located in a neighbouring suburb, until closure in 1982.
