Information

Broadmount, at 405 meters, is part of the Berserker Range, a mountainous region located on the eastern and northeastern boundary of the city of Rockhampton. The southernmost part of the range reaches the Fitzroy River at Broadmount, east of Rockhampton. The Recreation Reserve is just a small part of the Berserker Range and Mt Archer National Park as a whole.

Historically, the region (Berserker Range) was home to the Raki-warra clan of the local Darumbal indigenous people. It received its English name from the Archer brothers in 1853. A small amount of gold mining took place in the 19th century, and grazing leases were issued in 1900. The area was declared a timber reserve in 1940 and logged, with ironbark, white mahogany and lemon-scented gum being the main trees harvested. Grazing ended in 1974 with the conclusion of the last lease, and logging ceased in 1985.
