Mount Spec, Paluma Range National Park

Mutarnee, Townsville Area

Paluma Range National Park, the southern gateway for the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Mount Spec straddles the summit and escarpment of the Paluma Range, rising 1,000 metres above the Big Crystal Creek floodplain.

The upland rainforests are crisscrossed by a maze of streams and cascades. Open eucalypt forests dominate the lower slopes and casuarinas fringe the clear creeks.

Set up camp at Big Crystal Creek and explore the surrounding tracks and waterways. Take in the views from McClellands lookout, and admire the 1930s stone bridge over Little Crystal Creek. Escape he summer heat by picnicking near the creek before slipping into the one of the many cool waterholes.
