Eungella National Park

Eungella, Mackay Area

Enriched by dense sub-tropical rainforest with peaks shrouded in mist, a trip to Eungella National Park is both an exciting adventure and an escape to tranquillity.

Eungella National Park is one of Queensland's most ecologically diverse parks, with species from tropical and sub-tropical groups living in the rainforest.

Walk one of the many trails that lead to natural wonders, including the Sky Window walk leading through layers of bright palms with dewy fronds, for a spectacular view across the Pioneer Valley. Much of the park is wilderness, dissected by rugged gorges, which can be explored along the Mackay Highlands Great Walk, a 56-kilometre trail starting in Eungella.

Get back to nature with a bush picnic at Broken River or walk the Broken River trail to the viewing platform to see a platypus swimming.

Watch for a colourful array of birds and butterflies, including blue-faced honeyeaters and rainbow lorikeets. At night go spotlighting to see gliders, tawny frogmouths and possums, or visit Eungella dam for sunset fishing.

There are also many accommodation options.
