We've experienced probably half of the walks on offer in the Pioneer Valley. The Finch Hatton Gorge is amazing with the beautiful rainforest, moss covered rocks, trees and stumps while walking alongside the creeks and streams. The walk is worth it to the Wheel of...More

Visited here on our way from Airlie Beach to Rockhampton. The park is really beautiful, very quiet and peaceful. You drive up quite a steep hill to get there and the views are magnificent. We saw lots of lizards and turtles but sadly no platypus....More

The park is great. Good sceneries and easy walks. Of course you'll go there to see platypuses. We also saw a snake, big lizards, a handfull of turtles and plenty of birds. The place os a good cool stop from the warm tropical coast.

Really enjoyed the sky window walk and the platypus walk (even though we didnot see one) Well set out and easy grades

There are so many things to see and do at Eungella National Park. We were thrilled to see a platypus at Broken River and found that it wasn't the noise that frightened them but movement. Many turtles also raised their heads to say hi. The...More

We stopped at the Eungella National Park on our road trip from Sydney to Cairns. We had booked and paid our camping spot at the Broken River Bush Camp upfront and were a bit surprised to see that the campsite was almost full when we...More

The Eungella National Park is quite special. My husband and I hiked from the Eungella Chalet down to Broken River yesterday (6 miles?). The trail was well-maintained, beautiful, and with a diversity of plant, insect and bird communities. We were fortunate enough to see about...More

Great to travel through the sugar cane up the valley to this lovely spot. Great views at the top of the pioneer valley. Got some nice shots of the bush turkey. Not far to to broken river and the platypus.

Sorry, I don't know if there are public transportation options. It's pretty far off the beaten path, so suspect you'd need a car.

It is all sealed unless you want to go up to the dam. We travelled to see the platypus in a little rental car, enjoy it is a very magical place.
