Finch Hatton Gorge to Eungella National Park Walks

Eungella National Park provides a lush, cool environment in which to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Covering over 51,700 hectares of rugged land, the walking tracks lead to varying mixes of tropical and temperate rainforest.

Camp at Fern Flat (walk-in) or Crediton Hall, or along various points on the Mackay Highlands Great Walk.

Spot the platypus at various locations along the Valley, but most commonly at early morning or late afternoon from the viewing platform at Broken River.

With a ducklike snout, the platypus feeds on freshwater molluscs, crustaceans and other small invertebrates.

Broken River Information Centre is located beside the Platypus Lodge Restaurant and Cafe, and is a great spot to get valuable information while enjoying a bite to eat within the rainforest.

Eungella National Park is also home to 225 species of birds and over 860 plants.

The Eungella markets are a great local market with a variety of stalls. Held the first Sunday of each month at the Eungella Hall, North Street from 9am to 1pm.
