Main Range National Park
Explore endless scenery
Let your spirit soar as you meet the challenge of a short bushwalk or an extended exhilarating hike. Feel the sense of achievement as you reach one of the high rocky peaks in Main Range National Park where the sweeping views over forests and valleys stretch out forever. This World Heritage-listed park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia. The dramatic escarpment of Main Range is a remnant of a volcano that was active some 24 million years ago. More recently, this area played a significant role in Queensland’s pioneering history, and there are plenty of relics to explore. Enjoy a traditional Australian picnic near the top of popular Queen Mary Falls or visit magnificent Cunninghams Gap. Keep an eye out for some of the rare wildlife in this park—at Mount Cordeaux, Albert’s lyrebirds sometimes make surprise appearances! Camp at Spicer’s Gap on the eastern side of the range or at stunning Goomburra on the western side of the range—many short walking tracks begin from these camping areas.
