The park protects many unusual plants and animals, including the Eungella dayfrog, Mackay tulip oak, Eungella spiny cray and Eungella honeyeater. This isolated mountain refuge lies close to the boundary between subtropical and tropical rainforests and supports species from both vegetation types.
Much of the park is remote and inaccessible, and is dissected by gorges. Rainforest dominates the area, but open eucalypt woodland grows on Dick's Tableland in the rugged north-western part of the park. Flowering bottlebrushes and tall river she-oaks line the meandering Broken River—home to platypus.
Parks and forests protect Queensland's wonderful natural diversity and scenery. Please help keep these places special during your stay.
- Stay on the walking tracks. Taking shortcuts causes erosion and damages vegetation.
- Leave your pets at home—you will protect your pet and native wildlife, and come across more animals on your walk.
- Never feed or leave food for animals—you might be bitten or scratched. Let animals find their own food. Our foods can be harmful.
- Pack strong rubbish bags for storing rubbish during your journey. Take all rubbish home with you. Carry a small container for cigarette butts.
- Always use a fuel stove to reduce fire danger.

Eungella National Park (previously Broken River National Park) was first gazetted in 1936. It is managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 (Qld) to preserve and present its remarkable natural and cultural values for all time.
A management plan for this park will be prepared in the future.
