Summary

Goon Goon Dhina (Culture Circuit) Track is located within the Blackdown Tableland National Park. Rising high above the surrounding plains the park protects deep gorges, spectacular lookouts and scenic waterfalls. Rock faces display traditional Ghungalu artwork. 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. 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.

About the region

Blackdown Tableland is a national park in the Central Highlands Region, Queensland, Australia.

The Blackdown Tableland is a 900 m (3,000 ft) sandstone plateau rising abruptly from the plains below. Many creeks on the Tableland have developed gorges and waterfalls along their courses, the most notable of which drains in to the spectacular Rainbow Falls (Gudda Gumoo) over a 40 m (130 ft) drop. Some of the creeks on the Tableland are catchment fed by rain and often dry up, and some are spring fed and always flow even just a small amount. The national park is located in the north east of the central Queensland sandstone belt.

The tablelands are positioned at the junction of the Shotover, Expedition and Dawson Ranges.[3] Evidence of folding is shown in the rises and depressions amongst the ranges.

Camping is available on Mimosa Creek in the Tableland, camping fees apply.
