About Moogerah Peaks
The ancient, volcanic peaks of mounts French, Greville, Moon and Edwards are recognised not only for their unique shapes and as favourite bushwalking destinations, but are also remnant habitats of key conservation value within south east Queensland.
The peaks are mostly covered in open eucalypt forest with montane heath on the exposed rock faces and rainforest in some sheltered areas.
Before land clearing, much of the Fassifern Valley was covered by brigalow and vine forest, known as the 'Fassifern scrub'. Now only a very small remnant of this vegetation type remains, and it is protected within the Mount French section of the park.
These peaks are special places to Aboriginal people, bushwalkers and naturalists alike. If you come to Moogerah Peaks National Park be well prepared and treat the bush with care and respect.

You can help protect the park by observing these guidelines:
- Please leave all plants and animals undisturbed.
- Please do not feed wildlife. Human food can make native animals susceptible to disease and can cause overpopulations and aggressive behaviour.
- Use toilets if available. Away from toilets, ensure all human waste and toilet paper is properly buried—at least 15cm deep and at least 100m away from tracks, camp sites, watercourses and drainage channels. Take disposable nappies and sanitary products home with you for disposal.
- Take your rubbish home. Minimal impact bushwalkers take great care to avoid leaving any rubbish. Remember—pack it in, pack it out.
- Be self-sufficient—use a fuel stove.
- Stay on designated tracks and trails and keep to the summit route, take care near cliff edges and supervise children at all times. Shortcutting causes erosion, damages vegetation and can potentially result in injury.
Stop the spread of pathogens (disease producing organisms such as phytophthora, myrtle rust and amphibian chytrid fungus). Soil and detritus can contain pathogens such as fungal spores that are harmful to the forest and frogs.
- Keep to designated roads and walking tracks, and the summit route at all times.
- Start and finish your bushwalk with clean footwear by removing soil before leaving an area and keep all gear as clean and free from soil as possible during the walk.
- Footwear hygiene stations are provided at the entrance to the walking tracks at Mount French section and the summit routes in Mount Greville section of Moogerah Peaks National Park.
- Please clean and disinfect camping equipment using a disinfectant before camping in Mount French section.
- Watch the Stop the spread of weeds and pathogens web clip for more information.
