Eungella, Mackay Area

Indicative Rate * AU$11.90 to AU$11.90

The park protects many unusual plants and animals, including the Eungella dayfrog, Mackay tulip oak, Eungella spiny cray and Eungella honeyeater. This isolated mountain refuge lies close to the boundary between subtropical and tropical rainforests and supports species from both vegetation types.

Much of the park is remote and inaccessible, and is dissected by gorges.

Flowering bottlebrushes and tall river she-oaks line the meandering Broken River - home to platypus.
