This campsite is located in Main Range National Park
Covering 29 730 ha along the Great Dividing Range, World Heritage–listed Main Range National Park forms the western part of a crescent of mountains in south-east Qld known as the Scenic Rim. The park boasts impressive peaks and escarpments, and the delightful Queen Mary Falls. There are 3 main types of vegetation: rainforest in the moist, sheltered areas; open eucalypt forest on the high ridges and slopes; and mountain heath on the cliffs and rocky outcrops. Picnic spots are plentiful and there are spectacular views from Governors Chair (to the NSW border), and Sylvesters and Fassifern Valley lookouts. The park is divided into 3 sections with separate access routes: Cunninghams Gap, Goomburra and Queen Mary Falls. Advance bookings are required for camping.
