Goodedulla National Park Capricorn

About Goodedulla National Park

    Park features

    Covering 26,025ha, Goodedulla National Park conserves the only land zone of granites, acid volcanics and Permian sediments within the central Brigalow Belt. Park vegetation is diverse and includes rosewood and vine forest.

    Formerly the area was held under two pastoral leases, Rookwood and Boomer.

    Goodedulla National Park is centred on the Melaleuca Creek catchment of the Boomer Range.

    This remote park of picturesque meandering semi-permanent creeks within hilly to mountainous areas is ideal for birdwatching.

    Looking after the park

    Please follow these guidelines to help us protect these natural areas.

    • Use a portable stove to reduce fire danger and eliminate the need for firewood.
    • Avoid contaminating water with detergents, soaps or shampoos. Wash yourself and your cooking utensils at least 50m away from waterways.
    • Take it in, take it out. Bag all your rubbish and take it home for recycling or disposal.
    • Keep wildlife wild. Avoid feeding native animals—you might be bitten or scratched. Let animals find their own food. Our foods can be harmful to them.
    • Take care not to bring weed seeds into the park on shoes, tyres or tents.
    • Keep your camp area tidy at all times and leave your site as you found it.

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