Rising abruptly above the surrounding dry plains, Blackdown Tableland protects spectacular sandstone scenery at the north-eastern edge of the Central Queensland sandstone belt. This is the traditional home of the Ghungalu people, who have visited this place for thousands of years and left behind rock art, vivid reminders of their special culture.
The park supports diverse plant communities including heathlands, dry eucalypt forests and moist pockets of ferns, mosses and orchids. Being elevated, the tableland is often cooler and moister than nearby plains. Its isolation means plants and animals that are found nowhere else thrive here.
There are two walking destinations on the Gudda Gummoo (Rainbow Waters) track. The 1.8 kilometre one-way track to the lookout gives walkers views across the gorge and out to distant plains and hills. Walkers can choose to walk a further 200 metres down 240 stairs to the base of the waterfall where water spills over sandstone ledges.Visit Website
