Travel through Moonford for another 8km to the main picnic area.Cania Gorge preserves a valuable remnant of the Brigalow Belt natural region. More than 150 different types of plant community are found in this region, including brigalow forest, eucalypt woodland, cypress pine woodland, dry rainforest and grassland. More than 90 species of birds have been recorded in the park. Brush-tailed rock wallabies and common bent-wing bats are also seen. Aboriginal people have lived in Cania Gorge for at least 19,000 years. Freehand art on the sandstone walls is a reminder of their special way of life.
