Cania Gorge National Park

Monto, North Burnett Area

Trace the footsteps of local Indigenous ancestors who have been documented as living in the Cania Gorge National Park area for over 19,000 years and experience the abundant wildlife which has been sustained by this special ecosystem in Queensland's stunning Sandstone Wilderness.

Discover the sandstone landscapes and cliffs, fern-covered pools and forests, where you might just spot a grazing rock wallaby, sunbathing rainbow skink, a hunting lacemonitor, or hear the call of the dollarbirds.

Eight bushwalks can lead you on adventures to monolithic overhangs, dry gullies, past cliffs into dark crevices where orchids bloom, to lush fern covered pools and past towering eucalypts and other native fauna.

This is an ancient place where water is still eroding and moulding the ever-changing landscape, where rock wallabies, peregrine falcons and wedge-tailed eagles have all called their home for thousands of years.

Like the predictable water and food sources in the gorge sustained our Indigenous ancestors all those years ago, let Cania Gorge whet your appetite for a truly amazing and up close experience with nature in all its glory.
