Facilities and activities

Location

Mt Colosseum National Park is located 8km south of Miriam Vale.

What's special

Mount Colosseum is a prominent feature in the landscape. This steep granite peak rises to an elevation of 470m and is dotted with hoop pines towering over the dry rainforest below. Open forests with bloodwoods and ironbarks also grow in the park.

Getting there

Turn off the Bruce Highway at Miriam Vale and drive 6km east towards Seventeen Seventy along Fingerboard Road until you come to a T-junction signposted 'Mount Colosseum 5km'. Turn right onto Lowmead Road and continue for 5km to a Y-junction. Continue right and across the railway line onto Wards Road. The gravel road takes you to the sign-posted park boundary.

Exploring Mount Colosseum

There are no facilities, walking tracks or roads in this undeveloped park. Camping is not allowed.

Visitors entering the park must be self-sufficient and experienced in navigating in remote, off-track areas.

Visiting in the cooler months only is recommended.

The park protects vulnerable plants such as the wedge-leaf tuckeroo Cupaniopsis shirleyana and the three-leaved bosistoa Bosistoa transversa and a diverse range of birds due to the changing elevation.

In an emergency:

  • Call Triple Zero (000).
  • Advise the location and nature of the emergency.
  • Stay on the phone until you are told to hang up.

The nearest hospital is in Bundaberg.

Mobile phone coverage is not reliable in the park.
