Visiting Poona safely

    Getting there and getting around

    Poona National Park is 6km south-east of Maryborough on the northern side of the Maryborough-Cooloola and Boonooroo Road. Access is possible by four-wheel-drive vehicle, boat or walking. The roads inside the park are not signposted and are not recommended in wet weather as they become boggy.

    Staying safe

    For your safety:

    • Stay on the park management track network. It is easy to become disoriented walking through the dense, taller sections of wallum.
    • Carry plenty of water and a mobile phone.
    • Read more about staying safe in parks.

    In an emergency

    In case of accident, other emergency or for reporting a bushfire or acts of arson, please:

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

    The closest hospital is in Maryborough.

    • There are currently no park alerts for this park.
