The Palms National Park
In the Brisbane River headwaters, The Palms National Park protects a small remnant of mixed palm vine forest and subtropical rainforest.
Exploring The Palms
The Palms is a great place for a stopover on your way to the Bunya Mountains. Have a bush picnic with the local wildlife. Boil or treat the water before drinking.
Walk through the forest. Look for grey-headed flying-foxes camping over the creek in summer and visiting black-breasted button-quails in winter and spring.
See piccabeen palms, a large strangler fig, bunya and hoop pines, and buttressed trees along the track and boardwalks through the rainforest.
The park is 7km north-east of Cooyar. Turn off the New England Highway 1km north of Cooyar then drive 6km to the park.
