Goomburra Section, Main Range National Park

Goomburra, Southern Downs Area

Nested in the western foothills of the Great Dividing Range, 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, 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.
