Mackenzie Park

Duaringa, Central Highlands Area

Mackenzie Park, on the eastern side of town, is home to a rare tree that is only found in the Duaringa township. The Duaringa Stringy Bark, known to the Aboriginals as 'Budgeroo', grows up to 10 metres tall and has bushy foliage with small white flowers that bloom in spring. These trees were of great cultural significance to the early Aboriginals who used its bark to make rope, baskets and building materials.

Visit the park during the day to enjoy a picnic lunch under the shade of the Budgeroo and hear the splash of the waterfall in the lagoon. Visit during the night to see the waterfall lit up to create colourful reflections on the sand and the lagoon. Mackenzie Park has camping areas with electric barbecues and free hot showers.

Next to Mackenzie Park is a historic cemetery with many graves and headstones dating back to the 1800s.
