Mount Walsh National Park

Biggenden, North Burnett Area

Spectacular exposed granite outcrops and cliffs rise to 703 metres above sea level in this rugged park. Mount Walsh and The Bluff Mount at the northern end of the park are prominent landmarks in the Biggenden area.

The exposed granite outcrops, rugged ridges and steep forested slopes support a range of vegetation—from vine forests in sheltered pockets to scrubland and heath on rock pavements and open eucalypt and woodlands. Look for peregrine falcons soaring overhead, lace monitors sunning on rocks and saw-shelled turtles in the creeks.

Have a picnic barbecue below The Bluff Mount and, if you're well-prepared and experienced, you can hike to the various summits and rocky outcrops. If you're after something a little less strenuous, explore the park via four wheel drive or on foot. There is some amazing countryside to discover.
