Description

Mount Spec, Paluma Range National Park is an accessible, scenic section of Paluma Range National Park, the most southerly park in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Straddling the Paluma Range, the upland rainforests are crossed by a maze of streams and cascades. Open eucalypt forests dominate the lower slopes. Casuarinas fringe the creeks. Escape the summer heat by picnicking near the creek. Go birdwatching and look for logrunners, Macleay's honeyeaters and brush turkeys. If you are lucky you might see the golden bowerbird - the male decorates his bower with green and yellow leaves and flowers. For a glimpse of the past, visit Paluma, a village in the rainforest.
