Description

Mitchell grass plains and gidgee woodlands are protected in this remote park in the Torrens Creek catchment in central-western Queensland. Forest Den National Park's semi-permanent waterholes along Torrens and Paradise Creeks provide a refuge for travellers and wildlife alike.

This 5890 hectare park conserves a wide diversity of plants, some unique to this reserve within the region. Although used as grazing land for more than 100 years, little remains of this era apart from a few pastoral relics—fences, gateways and a derelict round timber bridge over Torrens Creek.

Enjoy birdwatching in the cooler hours of dusk and dawn. Whistling kites, brown falcons, and waterbirds including white ibis, royal spoonbills, darters, Pacific herons, egrets and rufus-throated honeyeaters nest by the waterholes. Picnic on the banks of Torrens Creek or camp at Four Mile Waterhole. No facilities are provided. Camping fees apply.
