About Eumundi Conservation Park

    Park features

    Dry open forest, tall wet eucalypt forests and small pockets of rainforest feature here. These forests provide an important refuge and corridor for wildlife in an increasingly urbanised environment.

    The park has timber-getting history, beginning in the late 1800s when Eumundi township was settled. Large trees including cedar, beech and pine, blackbutt and tallowwood were felled here and milled in two sawmills in the town area. Logging ceased in 1996 and Eumundi Conservation Park was declared in 2009 to protect the forest and wildlife that depends on it.

    Looking after the park

    Eumundi Conservation Park protects natural bushland that provides an important refuge and corridor for wildlife in an increasingly urbanised environment.

    Help protect valuable wildlife habitat:

    • Stay on designated trails—shortcutting causes erosion and damages vegetation.
    • Take your rubbish with you.
    • Horseriders—rest horses for short periods only to minimise soil erosion and compaction. Do not allow horses to graze on park vegetation.
    • Do not take or interfere with plants, animals, soil or rocks. Everything within the park is protected.
    • Ride only on formed roads and trails designated for riding—riding over vegetation, taking shortcuts and forming new trails damages plants and wildlife habitat.
    • Obey signs and safety notices.

    Limit the spread of weeds by:

    • Ensuring your clothes, shoes, bike, horses’ coats, hooves, equipment and floats are clean and free of seeds before park visits.
    • Avoid walking and riding through patches of weeds especially if they are seeding.
    • Horseriders—provide horses with weed-free, good quality, processed feed for at least 48 hours before entering the park.

    Ride responsibly:

    • Keep tracks in good condition and limit erosion by not riding during or immediately after wet weather conditions.
    • Only cross natural watercourses at designated crossing points on the trail.
    • Horseriders: follow the code of conduct for horse riding through parks and forests—a set of guidelines for horse riders to follow to minimise their impact on park environments and ensure they are meeting the legislative requirements of the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and the Forestry Act 1959.
