What's special

In the rugged Conondale Range are some of Queensland's most popular and picturesque forests. Luxuriant rainforests, tall eucalypt forest, waterfalls, boulder-strewn creeks and spectacular scenery make this area well worth a visit.

This diverse 35,500 hectare park provides critical habitat for a wide variety of wildlife including a significant number of rare and threatened plants and animals. A large number of plant species that occur here are at the limit of their distribution.

With magnificent forests, deep gorges and spectacular views, this park offers walking tracks, scenic drives and grassy camp sites near rainforests and mountain streams. Popular Booloumba Creek camping areas are located beside a scenic rainforest lined creek.

The Conondale Range Great Walk showcases the very best of Conondale National Park.  Ancient rainforest, cascading waterfalls, crystal clear creeks, tall open forest, and expansive views are just some of the spectacular features of this walk. Visitors can take short strolls or complete the full four-day 56 km circuit walk.
