Mount Barney National Park

Upper Logan Road, Mount Barney, Queensland 4287

Images

The distinctive peaks of Mount Barney, Mount Maroon, Mount May, Mount Lindesay, Mount Ernest, Mount Ballow and Mount Clunie make up Mount Barney National Park. These rugged peaks are the remains of the ancient Focal Peak Shield Volcano which erupted 24 million years ago. Mount Barney is the second highest peak in South East Queensland and most of the park is within the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area.

The park's cascading creeks and pristine forest habitats preserve many rare plants and vulnerable animal species unique to the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Its peaks act as a global magnet to highly skilled and adventurous bushwalkers.

For a leisurely visit, drive to Yellow Pinch picnic area and photograph kingfishers swooping over the water. If you are reasonably fit and equipped, walk in to camp at Cronan Creek (from Yellow Pinch), the Upper Portals (from Cleared Ridge), or the Lower Portals (from Lower Portals carpark). Only skilled hikers should attempt other walks in the park.
