What's special

In the foothills of the Burnett Range, Kalpowar State Forest protects a mosaic of forests. Patches of dense rainforest with towering hoop pines remain between open eucalypt forests and hoop pine plantations. More than 150 plant species occur in the hoop pine rainforest which was first logged in 1918. Fireclay Road got its name from local clay used to make bricks before the plantations were established here. The first hoop pine plantation of about 12ha was developed in 1934 and the last available area was planted in 1991.
