Eungella National Park, sitting high above the surrounding plains, is a mist-shrouded and forest-clad mountain refuge harbouring diverse plants and wildlife. One of Queensland’s most ecologically diverse parks, a visit to Eungella is both an exciting adventure and an escape to tranquillity.
Look for some of the many unusual plants and animals, including the Eungella dayfrog, Mackay tulip oak, Eungella spiny cray and Eungella honeyeater.
Follow walking tracks ranging from 30 minute easy walks to half day and day walks and enjoy spectacular views down the Pioneer Valley, along with rainforest gullies and river pools.
Enjoy a picnic at Broken River and then wander along the banks watching the platypus in the gently-flowing water. Camp overnight in a tranquil river-side camping area.
Explore the far reaches of the park along the 56 kilometre Mackay Highlands Great Walk.
