The Strangler Cairn, Conondale National Park

The Strangler Cairn, Conondale National Park

In the rugged Conondale Range, this park features luxuriant rainforests, tall eucalypt forests, waterfalls, boulder-strewn creeks and spectacular scenery.  The diverse forests provide homes for a wonderful variety of wildlife including more than 120 species of birds and many mammals. The threatened but seldom-seen yellow-bellied glider lives in the open forest. Some rare and threatened species are found in the Conondale and Blackall ranges, including the cascade tree-frog and plumed frog-mouth.

The 56 km Conondale Range Great Walk showcases the very best of Conondale National Park’s natural features. A sculpture by internationally renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy is within a half day walk on this track and compliments the stunning beauty of its environment.  The walking track to Artists cascades goes past the sculpture.
