Goomburra, Main Range National Park

Goomburra, Southern Downs Area

Free Entry 

Goomburra is one of four visitor nodes of Main Range National Park - part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Rugged mountain ranges, spectacular lookouts, trickling streams and rare wildlife make this a very special place.

Two open, grassy camping areas hug Dalrymple Creek in the western foothills of the range; close to three walking tracks ranging from an easy 1.2 kilometre circuit suitable for wheelchairs with assistance, to a six kilometre track showcasing waterfalls and freshwater habitats. A short four-wheel-drive away, two more tracks lead to scenic lookouts, both within an hour's walk. Several longer walks can also be chosen, including along an old forestry snigging trail to a winder used back when timber was hauled from these forests.

Look for New England blackbutt and manna gums in dry open forests; giant spear lillies on cliff edges; and vines, palms and epiphytes in the rainforests of moist gullies and the escarpment. Watch for echidnas and koalas. See satin bowerbirds and variegated fairy-wrens, or listen to the calls of shy yellow-tailed black-cockatoos. Goomburra is a special area for frogs; keep to tracks and please do not disturb rocks or pollute watercourses.
