About Cania Gorge

    Park features

    Cania Gorge preserves a valuable remnant of the Brigalow Belt natural region. More than 150 different types of plant community are found in this region, including brigalow forest, eucalypt woodland, cypress pine woodland, dry rainforest and grassland.

    The park is home to more than 90 species of bird. Brush-tailed rock-wallabies and common bent-wing bats are also seen.

    Aboriginal people have lived in Cania Gorge for at least 19,000 years. Freehand art on the sandstone walls is a reminder of their special way of life.

    Looking after the park

    Parks and forests protect Queensland’s wonderful natural diversity and scenery. Help keep these places special by following these guidelines:

    • Everything within the national park is protected. Do not interfere with plants, animals, soil or rocks.
    • Leave pets at home—domestic animals are not permitted in national parks.
    • Never feed or leave food for animals. Human food can harm wildlife and cause some animals to become aggressive and/or diseased.
    • Use toilets if available. Away from toilets, ensure all faecal matter and toilet paper are properly buried 15cm deep and at least 100m away from tracks, camp sites, watercourses and drainage channels. Carry out disposable nappies and sanitary products.
    • Keep to the walking tracks where provided, do not cut corners or create new tracks.
    • Take your rubbish away with you for appropriate disposal. Rubbish bins are not provided in the park.

    See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
