Getting there and getting around

Main Range Conservation Park is about 130km from Brisbane and 40km south of Gatton in south-east Queensland’s Lockyer Valley.

  • The information hut is approximately 2km south of the park entrance, opposite the Casuarina day-use area near the end of East Haldon Road.

Getting to Main Range Conservation Park

  • At the western edge of Gatton, turn south off the Gatton−Toowoomba Road onto Mount Sylvia Road.
  • Travel south through Tenthill to Junction View. Road signs pointing to Glen Rock Regional Park (the park’s former name) direct the way
  • At the old Junction View State School veer left and follow East Haldon Road to the park.
  • Continue to the end of the road. The last 4km to the park entrance is gravel.

The road to the park is narrow and winding, with numerous creek crossings that flood after heavy rain.


The ramp providing access to the information hut has a gradual incline. However, to use it you must cross grass from your vehicle. The timber floor inside the building is uneven with some gaps between boards. Assistance may be required to those in wheelchairs.
