Facilities and activities

Location

About 17 km east of Hampton (32 km north of Toowoomba) or 33 km west of Esk via the Esk–Hampton Road.

What's special

Discover towering trees, palm groves, trickling streams and amazing birdlife in the best remaining example of the rainforest that originally covered this part of the Great Dividing Range.

Local Aboriginal people and those travelling to the bunya feasts in the Bunya Mountains used the area extensively. Rainforest hardwoods, red cedar Toona ciliata and other timbers were felled from about the 1860s.
