Zamia walk, Mount Archer National Park

Rockhampton, Rockhampton Area

Protecting bushland remnants in the Berserker Ranges, this scenic national park is the dramatic backdrop to Rockhampton. At 604 metres above sea level, Mount Archer is the highest peak and has spectacular views of the city and the surrounding ranges from its peak.

Named in honour of the Archer brothers who explored the Fitzroy area in 1853, the park is part of the Darumbal Aboriginal people’s traditional country.

Mount Archer is home to a variety of woodland birds including vulnerable powerful owls. Look for glossy black-cockatoos feeding on she-oak seeds. If you wait quietly, you may see unadorned rock-wallabies coming to drink from Moores Creek in the early morning and late afternoon.

Explore the park on the 14 kilometre, one-way Zamia walk. Wander down from the summit, through fragrant forests, along trickling creeks and under rainforest canopies to the base of the mountain.
