White Mountains National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
One of Queensland's largest and most scenic parks with its pure white sandstone giving the park its name. Covering over 108000ha this large park has a huge variety of habitats and landscapes producing a massive variety of native plants many of which flower during the spring and summer to produce a spectacular show of native flora.

One of Australia's rarest Wallabies the Spectacled Hare wallaby (Longestes Conspicallatus) lives amongst the hummock grasslands in the open woodland, also the rare Pebble Mound Mouse has been found here (Pseudomys Patrius). This small mouse builds a mound of stones near the entrance to its burrow it is believed to assist in the collection of dew as moisture can be rare in the arid area where it is found.

Other rare animals found in the park include the black throated finch (Poephila cincta), squatter pigeon (Geophaps scripta), grey falcon (Falco hypoleucos), square tailed kite (Lophoictinia isura), white-eared honey-eater (Lichenostomus leucotis), and brown thornbill (Acanthiza pusilla).

The park has a complex maze of white sandstone gorges, peaks and bluffs. All these gorges can be confusing for the best bushwalkers to navigate.

Camping in the park is by permit only. There are no visitor facilities inside the park. Access to the park is difficult and most parts should only be attempted with a 4WD. People going into the park must fill out and return a plan to the park ranger detailing where they intend bushwalking and camping, emergency contact numbers, next of kin etc are also required.

Contact the local Parks and Wildlife Service or visit the QLD National parks, marine parks and forests website. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
