Pioneer Valley and Eungella National Park, The

Multiple Locations

A wonderland of waterfalls, refreshingly cool rainforest and the chance to see a platypus in the wild beckons exploration in Eungella National Park. Australia's longest stretch of sub-tropical rainforest, Eungella, (pronounced young-ge-lah), is a must-see attraction.

Travel through the lush lowlands of the Pioneer Valley, carpeted in sugar cane, before arriving at the beautiful Finch Hatton Gorge. Scuba dive with the platypus, fly among rainforest canopy on a zipwire or take a stroll to one of Finch Hatton's waterfalls, before driving up the range to Eungella.

See a diverse range of flora and fauna on a rainforest walk and experience breathtaking views of the Pioneer Valley, truly spectacular at sunrise and sunset. Travel to Broken River for the chance to see a platypus in the wild. Eungella National Park can be experienced as a day trip, or extend your visit to enjoy warm hospitality from one of the rainforest's many accommodation and dining establishments.

Pinnacle Pub to Finch Hatton Gorge

Finch Hatton Gorge in the foothills of the Eungella Range has excellent rainforest walking trails that take you to the Araluen and Wheel of Fire waterfalls where you can take a refreshing dip in the deep natural swimming holes. The River Rock Cafe in Finch Hatton Gorge is great for a casual lunch to refuel for bushwalks and swimming.

Finch Hatton Gorge to Eungella National Park Walks

The Eungella National Park provides a lush, cooling environment in which to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Covering over 51,700 hectares of rugged land, the walking tracks lead to varying mixes of tropical and temperate rainforest. Camp at Fern Flat (walk-in) or Crediton Hall, or along various points on the Mackay Highlands Great Walk. Spot the platypus at various locations along the Valley, but most commonly at early morning or late afternoon from the viewing platform at Broken River. With a ducklike snout, the platypus feeds on freshwater molluscs, crustaceans and other small invertebrates. The Park is also home to 225 species of birds. The Eungella markets are a great local market with a variety of stalls. Held the first Sunday of each month at the Eungella Hall, North Street from 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.
