Summary

Shepherd’s Peak Trail is located within Expedition National Park, Robinson Gorge section. Expedition National Park is part of the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. Scenic Robinson Gorge is one of the main features of Expedition National Park, located on the Expedition Range between Taroom and Rolleston. The gorge winds 14 kilometres between sheer sandstone cliffs up to 100 metres high. It begins as a broad shallow basin in the north and narrows to a deep pool and narrow gorge towards its southern end. Lined with cabbage palms (a relic from the era of dinosaurs), bottlebrushes and wattles, this section of park is home to several rare plant species including Eucalyptus rubiginosa and Leucopogon grandiflorus.
