Sunshine Coast - Auburn River National Park
The scenic Auburn River tumbles over massive, water-sculpted, salmon-coloured granite boulders as it flows through a steep-sided gorge in Auburn River National Park.
bottlebrushes, flowering leptospermum shrubs and stunted figs line the creek
banks. Bottle trees grow in the dry rainforest on the northern bank of the
river near the camping area. Silver-leaved ironbark and forest red gum grow
in the grassy open forests. These western hardwood forests are now uncommon
in this area.
birdwatching in the forests along the clifftops or around the waterholes.
If you are lucky, you might see peregrine falcons which nest in the cliffs
opposite the camping area. See brush-tailed rock-wallabies around the cliffs
and red-necked wallabies in scrubby gullies near the camping area. Enjoy the
wildflowers in spring.
Park has dedicated level camping sites suitable for caravans
