What's special

From the highway near Miriam Vale, Mount Colosseum is a prominent feature on the skyline. This volcanic dome rises to an elevation of 470 m and is dotted with hoop pines towering over the dry rainforest below. Open forests with bloodwoods and ironbarks also grow in the park.

Visiting in the cooler months only is recommended.

Getting there

Turn off the Bruce Highway at Miriam Vale and drive 6 km east towards Seventeen Seventy until you come to a T-junction signposted 'Mount Colosseum 5 km'. Turn right and follow this road for 5 km to a Y-junction. Continue right and across the railway line. The gravel road takes you to the signposted park boundary.

Exploring Mount Colosseum

Enjoy nature in this undeveloped park, but remember to take your own food and water. No facilities are provided and camping is not allowed. There are no walking tracks in the park.
