About the region

Mount Archer National Park is a national park in Central Queensland, Australia, 522 kilometres (324 mi) northwest of Brisbane. It makes up the backdrop to the city of Rockhampton which marks the start of Tropical Queensland.

The vegetation is mostly open eucalypt woodland with patches of vine scrub. The rufous shrikethrush, white-browed scrubwren, powerful owl and glossy black cockatoo are some of the bird species found in the park.

A road leads to the summit of Mount Archer, where there are a few bushwalking and rock climbing opportunities.
