Information

Only 4km out of town on Tambo Rd we turned onto Dendle’s Drive and into Minerva Hills National Park. This relatively small park of 2790 hectares forms an impressive backdrop to the central Queensland town of Springsure. The road was mostly unsealed and the bushland dotted with grasstrees (xanthorrhoea sp). From Fred’s Gorge to Eclipse Gap Lookout the track was a little rocky. At Fred’s Gorge there was a drop toilet, limited drinking water, a wood barbeque andshelter shed. http://www.queenslandholidays.com.au/things-to-see-and-do/minerva-hills-national-park/index.cfm The park is dominated by Mt Boorambool, rising 600m above sea level and the larger cliff-fringed Mt Zamia which offers panoramic views of Springsure and the surrounding landscape. We enjoyed our time in the park and as usual we were the only ones there.
