In Auburn River National Park, the spectacular Auburn River flows over huge salmon-coloured boulders as it courses through a steep-sided granite gorge. Look up along the clifftops for the nesting peregrine falcons. The forest and waterholes are also good spots for birdwatching. Weeping red bottlebrushes contrast with dark green of stunted figs and flowering tea-trees along the creek. In spring, there are wildflowers to admire. A 600 metre (return) walking track leads to a lookout far above the river. Take the 3.2 kilometre (return) gentle walk along the top of the gorge above the river. Another quite strenuous trail winds down the side of the gorge to the river (1.5 kilometre return).
Children are welcome. Supervise children closely at all times, especially near cliff edges and by the river. Keep to walking tracks.
Entry to the park is free of charge, however, camping fees apply. Book camping permits before you go.
How To Get There
The park is 77 kilometres south of Eidsvold (40 kilometres south-west of Mundubbera). In the wet, the unsealed gravel road becomes treacherous, even for four wheel drives.
