About Imbil

    Park features

    Adjoining Conondale National Park, this area provides easy access to the features of both Imbil State Forest and Conondale National Park—luxuriant rainforest, tall eucalypt forest, mosaics of plantation forest, waterfalls, boulder-strewn creeks and spectacular scenery make this area well worth a visit.

    The diverse forests provide homes for a wonderful variety of wildlife including more than 120 species of birds and many mammals. The threatened and seldom-seen yellow-bellied glider lives in the open forest.

    Looking after the park

    Help protect our natural environment by practicing minimal impact recreation. Take all your rubbish out of the park. Remove excess food packaging at home, before your visit to the forest, and pack strong sealable bags or containers to store food and rubbish.

    Creeks near camping and picnic areas feed water into the Mary River and on to domestic water supplies. Please keep them clean.

    See Caring for parks and forests for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.

    Park management

    The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) manages these parks and forests under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and Forestry Act 1959.
