Facilities and activities

Location

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

What's special

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.
