About Speewah

    Park features

    Speewah Conservation Park, covering an area of 15.2ha, was gazetted as a conservation park on 17 December 2004, following a donation of land to Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) by local residents Ron and Pam Elgar. It is adjacent to Barron Gorge National Park.

    Smooth, green-trunked cadagi trees Corymbia torelliana and tall kauri pines Agathis robusta provide a scenic setting and the surrounding rainforest provides a tranquil backdrop for the camping and day-use areas.

    Speewah camping area is a convenient base for exploring the long-distance walking track network in Barron Gorge National Park.
