Description

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. Formed by volcanic activity 20-26 million years ago, this volcanic plug features many-sided basalt columns. The park contains open woodlands with poplar box, Moreton Bay ash, forest red gums, silver-leaved ironbarks and small patches of brigalow. An open semi-evergreen vine thicket growing on rocky slopes towards the summit and around the base of the mountain is a relict of much wetter times. This vegetation is now uncommon in Central East Queensland.

The 600 metre return Cultural Trail is accessed from the picnic and day use area. Information signs at the mountain's base offers great views of the mountain and gives insight into Mount Scoria's significance to the Gangulu people. There are no walking tracks to the peak and climbing the mountain is discouraged. Allow 30 minutes to complete this easy walk.
