Mt. Mee is so close to brisbane that it is an easy 4wd day trip idea. Mt Mee is part of the D’Aguilar National Park and only about 15 minutes from Dayboro. D’Aguilar National Park is divided into two sections, north and south. The majority of the northern part is 4wd access only. Mt. Mee is a beautiful mountain located in the northern section of the National Park and the northern section of D’Aguilar is often just called Mt. Mee.
We Started our Day in Dayboro and entered the state forest at the very south end via Laceys Creek Rd. We almost turned around before getting to the dirt roads as Laceys Creek Rd is signed as a no through road a little while before the gravel road starts.
Unfortunately some of the harder tracks had been closed due to weather, but most of the easier tracks were still open. I recommend that you check with DERM before you go because it certainly is a beautiful place to spend a weekend if the tracks and campsites are open. There was still plenty to see on the main tracks for the day trip. The main tracks are suitable for any 4wd or AWD soft roader vehicle. When the moderate or difficult forest tracks are open, you need a more capable vehicle. The Mount Mee forest trail and drive map which shows the 4wd tracks and their difficulty can be found here:

We stopped at the Gantry for a quick lunch. There is a nice day use area, toilets, BBQs, tables etc. There is heaps more at mt Mee to do, but we stuck for driving this trip due to weather. Next time we will check out some of the other landmarks like Rocky Hole, Falls Lookout and hopefully have a go at some of the harder tracks like A Break. If you wanted to turn it into a weekend trip there are several camping spots like Neurum Creek camping area and Archer camping area.
