What's special

In semi-arid, south-western Queensland, Tregole National Park straddles the boundary between two of the state’s natural regions, the brigalow belt and the mulga lands.

The park protects a small, almost pure stand of ooline Cadellia pentastylis, an attractive dry rainforest tree dating back to the Ice Ages. Ooline has been extensively cleared and is now uncommon and considered vulnerable to extinction. Tregole’s ooline forest survives in the less than ideal semi-arid conditions.

Mulga grows on the ridges while poplar box woodlands cover the alluvial plains, brigalow woodlands grow on areas with heavy clay soils and Mitchell grasslands are found on the park’s undulating plains.

Exploring Tregole

Relax and enjoy the bush. Read the signs in the information shelter to discover more about the park.

Have a bush picnic. A gas barbecue is provided. Open fires are not permitted. See sand goannas or caper white butterflies flitting around the wild orange bushes. Please do not feed the animals. Take some drinking water and remove your rubbish when you leave.

Take your binoculars and camera and go birdwatching. Camping is not allowed in the park. Accommodation is available in nearby Morven.

Walking

See the park’s major vegetation types on a 2.1km circuit track. Walk through the ooline forest, along a ridge and back to the picnic area. Look for the black orchid growing on the ooline tree trunks. Wear a hat and sunscreen and allow up to an hour for the walk.

Getting there

Tregole is located between Roma and Charleville, just 10km south of Morven on the Morven-Bollon Road. The road between Morven and the park is sealed and narrow.
