Location

About 150 km or two hours drive north-west of Brisbane, the final 16 km to camping areas is via winding gravel roads.

What's special

In the Blackbutt Range, a scenic forest drive leads through rainforest, hoop pine plantations and eucalypt forests containing blackbutt, tallowwood, white mahogany, gums and ironbarks to small flats beside the inviting waters of Emu Creek.

The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and Bicentennial National Trail pass through Benarkin State Forest.
