Eungella National Park Mackay

Survive your visit to Finch Hatton Gorge

Take extreme care around cascades and fast flowing streams. Six people have died in accidents around the Finch Hatton Gorge area over the past 40 years. Many more have been seriously injured―some of these include spinal injuries. These incidents are specifically due to slipping on the wet slippery rocks and steep wet slopes—please take warnings seriously and do not enter a restricted access area.
