About Nerang

    Park features

    A popular bush retreat for visitors and locals, Nerang National Park is a place to experience nature and enjoy recreating in the peaceful outdoors. Enjoy a scenic bushwalk or horseride, or go for a ride along one of the mountain bike trails.

    Dry rainforest and open eucalypt forests of grey gum, blue gum, stringybark and tallowwood grow in the hilly reserve, while sections of remnant gallery rainforest thrive in the gullies.
