Lumholtz National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Home to Australia’s largest clear drop waterfall Wallaman Falls, this 124,000 ha park is nestled within the Herbert River Valley and provides fantastic views, magnificent gorges some over 500 metres deep, ancient rainforest reputed to be some of the oldest on the planet, open forests and plenty for the visitor to do and see.

Cassowary inhabit this park as do many other species of native birds and animals including platypus. Australia's largest snake the beautiful Amethystine (Scrub) Python (Morelia amethistina) also can be found here named because of the luminescent green sheen to its scales. The largest recorded Amethystine snake measured in at 8.5 metres or 28 feet and have been known to jump up to half their body length. These snakes are not a danger to humans and avoid us wherever possible.
 

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.

Girringun National Park originally formed part of Lumholtz National Park before a name change in 2003.
