Monto, North Burnett Area
Towering cliffs, ancient caves and sheltered gorges are highlights of this park, which preserves a valuable remnant of the Brigalow Belt, Aboriginal freehand art and varied habitats for wildlife. Brigalow forest, eucalypt woodland, cypress pine woodland, dry rainforest and grassland are found in this park, which is also home to more than 90 species of birds.
Enjoy a picnic and find out about the park's wildlife, vegetation and history beside pretty Three Moon Creek. Bushwalkers can choose from eight walks of varying length and difficulty. Take an easy amble on the Picnic Area circuit along Three Moon Creek or take the longer Shamrock mine site walk to find out about the area's past. Tackle the more difficult Castle Mountain track and be rewarded by lovely views of the gorge. Watch for platypus in the creek and peregrine falcons soaring above cliffs.
