About Woondum

    Park features

    Hills and mountains covered in tall eucalypt forest and rainforest, and cascading boulder-strewn creeks feature here.

    Many areas of Woondum have been selectively logged, several as recently as the late 1990s. Some areas were banana plantations before being reforested with eucalypt plantations.

    The spotted gum Corymbia citriodora subsp. variegata population growing here is resistant to fungal leaf and shoot disease. Its seed was used in plantations all over South East Queensland.

    Looking after the park

    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.
