Forty Mile Scrub National Park is an island of rainforest in a sea of eucalypt woodland, preserving rare, remnant semi-evergreen vine thicket. Large bottle trees, along with fig, Burdekin plum and white cedar trees drop their leaves in the dry season but spring to life with summer rain. Take a break and have a picnic at the sheltered tables. Learn about the plants and animals found in this park on the short, self-guided walk through this unique forest. Listen for the ringing calls of pied currawongs and look for lemon-bellied flycatchers, rufous fantails and other birds in the trees.
There is access for guests with a disability. The picnic facilities, toilets and track are wheelchair-accessible.
How To Get There
The park is 65 kilometres south-west of Mount Garnet or 108 kilometres south-west of Ravenshoe. The park straddles the Kennedy Highway.
