Mount Scoria Cultural Trail is located within Mount Scoria Conservation Park. This striking mountain rises above plains of grazing land, and features basalt columns, rocky scree slopes, open woodlands, vine thickets and diverse bird life.

The park contains open woodlands with poplar box, Moreton Bay ash, forest red gums, silver-leaved ironbarks and small patches of brigalow.

This vegetation is now uncommon in Central East Queensland.... more
