Main Range National Park

Warwick, Southern Downs Area

Main Range National Park traverses the Cunningham Highway near Ipswich and Warwick in the Southern Downs Area. This heritage-listed ancient rainforest links South East Queensland's Scenic Rim in the east with an arc of Gondwana lined peaks, ridges and escarpments to the west.

Commence by heading towards Goomburra on the unsealed road to the Dalrymple Circuit and camp at Spicers Gap or Goomburra. Keep your camera poised for the seldom seen Albert's lyrebird, the endangered eastern bristlebird and the vulnerable black-breasted button-quail.

Plan lunch at Cunningham's Gap picnic area where the highway's cross, and explore the Rainforest Circuit with ancient volcanic views over the Fassifern Valley and Lake Moogerah - popular with boaties and anglers.

Enjoy the sights of Queen Mary Falls at the lookout giving views of water plummeting 40 metres below into Spring Creek. Challenge yourself on a full day hike to summit Mount Cordeaux or Mount Mitchell and explore the Pioneer Graves Track or the 300 metre return to Governors Chair lookout, the large rock on the edge of the cliff face.
