About the region

Cape Hillsborough is a national park in Mackay Region, Queensland, Australia.

The park is 837 km northwest of Brisbane. The park is a peninsula of volcanic origin, covered largely by rainforest; the maximum elevation is 267 m. The cape at the tip of the peninsula was named by Lieutenant James Cook during his first voyage to the Pacific in 1770; the name is in honour of Wills Hill, Earl of Hillsborough who was President of the Board of Trade and Plantations from 1765 to 1765. The nearest major town is Mackay, about 40 km to the southeast.

The park is located within the O’Connell River water catchment area and the Central Mackay Coast bioregion.

On National Parks Day 2010 (Sunday, 28 March 2010) the Queensland State Government announced the addition of 204 hectares to the park.
