About Hallorans Hill

    Park features

    Hallorans Hills Conservation Park protects eucalypt forest and a remnant of the endangered mabi forest on an extinct volcanic cone. The cone is part of the legacy of the tableland's fiery geological past.

    Enjoy the 1.4km walk to the top of the hill or drive there through suburban Atherton. The expansive views from the summit exhibit the tableland's mosaic of land use and geological formations.

    A council park at the summit adjoins the conservation park and provides barbecues, toilets, tables, play equipment, walking track and interpretive signs. For more information see the tourism information links.
