Topaz Road National Park Management Statement 2013

Topaz Road National Park protects remnant rainforest in the upper Johnstone River catchment. The park and nearby nature refuges form a network of protected areas that adjoin Wooroonooran National Park, providing habitat connectivity for a wide variety of Wet Tropics species.

Conservation purpose

Topaz Road National Park was gazetted in 1977. It supports an area of complex mesophyll vine forest on volcanic soils.

A 19th century water race associated with past gold mining activity is located in the southern part of the park. The 150 metre (m) long tunnel is home to a number of bat species.

The adjoining Galaji Nature Refuge supports 41 identified species of native wildlife prescribed as near threatened, vulnerable or endangered; including the endangered southern cassowary Casaurius casaurius. It is likely that the park supports a similar range of plants and animals.
