Jack Smith Scrub Conservation Park Southern Queensland Country

Things to do

    Exploring Jack Smith Scrub

    Have a picnic at the edge of the park overlooking the South Burnett Valley. On a clear day, you can see the Bunya Mountains to the south-west. Go birdwatching. More than 40 species of birds have been seen in the park including the black-breasted button-quail which leaves circular depressions on the track as it spins around feeding on the forest floor. See brush-turkey mounds beside the walking track. If you visit in spring, you will see the creamy flowers of the wonga vine which twists around the tree trunks. Camping is not allowed in the park.


    Explore the park along a short circuit track. Wear protective clothing to avoid being scratched by prickly shrubs.
