This rugged national park features open eucalypt forest, rainforest and cascades along Stony Creek. Remnants of Brandon’s Sawmill can still be seen on West Bellthorpe Road. In dry weather conditions, roads within the park offer challenging four-wheel-driving experiences through picturesque scenery in the middle of the park.


West of the Glass House Mountains, at the southern end of the Conondale Range, about 85km (or 90min drive) north-west of Brisbane.
