Tewantin National Park preserves diverse landscapes and wildlife. Rainforest, open eucalypt forest and wallum remnants between Noosa and Cooroy provide important refuge for native wildlife including echidnas, swamp wallabies and wallum froglets.
Birdwatchers will hear the calls of countless species including the characteristic eastern whip bird and vulnerable glossy black cockatoo.
Even if you are not lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the wildlife the range of vegetation will stimulate the senses as you explore the park.
You can help protect the natural environment and help ensure the survival of native plants and animals living here, by following these guidelines.
- Everything within national parks and forests is protected. Do not take or interfere with plants, animals, soil or rocks.
- Do not feed or leave food for animals. Human food can harm wildlife and cause some animals to become aggressive.
- Stay on the track. Do not cut corners or create new tracks.
- Take rubbish home with you as no bins are provided.
- Obey signs and safety notices.
See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
