Situated 50km south of Childers, Mount Walsh National Park has three main entry points, through the Mount Walsh day use area; Waterfall Creek; or Coongara Rock. Whichever way you approach this destination you’ll find steeped forest slopes, sheltered gullies, rugged ridge lines, and mountain areas with exposed granite outcrops and cliffs.
Known for its diverse vegetation, explore vine forests in sheltered pockets, scrubland and heath on rock pavements, and open eucalypt forest and woodland. Check out the native witch hazel tree with its perfumed white flowers and the rare and threatened heart-leaved bosistoa.
Amphibians, reptiles, mammals and birds are also drawn to this park which is home to the rare powerful owl and grey goshawk. There’s also peregrine falcons, lace monitors and saw-shelled tortoises here.
