There are two parts to this park the Mount Fox section a
215 ha park dominated by an isolated extinct cratered
volcano, the park is filled with striated rocks and lava
bombs and other volcanic features. No camping facilities are
provided and permits must be obtained prior to going into
the park which is accessible only by gravel road. A climb to
the cratered top of the volcano can be achieved by
experienced and fit bushwalkers only, the track is not
marked or maintained.
The main section of the park is
closer to Ingham and more easily accessible, camping is
allowed but only by permit. Please note the Yamanie section
of the park adjacent to the Herbert River is inhabited by
estuarine crocodile (crocdylus porosus), swimming is
at your own risk.
