More Info

Discover spectacular scenery, granite outcrops, a scenic waterfall and eucalypt forest remnants in Crows Nest National Park on the edge of the Great Dividing Range.

Few places have such a wonderful variety of eucalypt trees from gums to stringybarks, bloodwoods and ironbarks, delighting the amateur naturalist. The park is a haven for wildlife including platypus, swamp wallabies, echidnas, bandicoots, lace monitors, birds, and the brush-tailed rock-wallaby, which is vulnerable to extinction in Queensland.

Discover Crows Nest Falls, on the Crows Nest Falls Lookout track, where water plunges 20 metres over steep granite cliffs. Extend the original 2.1 kilometre circuit by adding the Kauyoo Loop to The Cascades, Kauyoo Pool and Bottlebrush Pool, where you're able to take a dip on a hot summer's day.

Continue to adventure 4.5 kilometres to Koonin lookout for a glistening birds-eye-view over the Valley of Diamonds and spot brush-tailed rock-wallabies, rosellas and fantails. Stay overnight in the small bush camping area to watch nocturnal bandicoots and gliders at night. Book camping in advance.
