This distinctive flat-topped ridge, shaped like an upturned boat, is covered in dry rainforest and open eucalypt woodland. At 589m above sea level, Boat Mountain is a local landmark in the Murgon area and the headwaters of four creeks.

Most of the area’s vegetation was originally hoop pine rainforest but, after regional logging operations, is now a mixture of softwood scrub and vine thicket. Around 130 plant species grow here, including some classified as rare. Common trees include the small-leaved tuckeroo, white tamarind, leopard ash and native holly.

The park also contains grassy open eucalypt woodland with stringybarks and grey gums.


Located in the southern inland Queensland, only 12km north-east of Murgon.
