QLD Mackay - Blackwood National Park

In Queensland’s Brigalow Belt natural region, Blackwood National Park has a landscape of undulating hills, stony ridges and alluvial flats. Acacia woodlands of blackwood and lancewood trees, spinifex grass and pockets of dry rainforest grow on the stony ridges while box eucalypts and coolibah trees grow along the alluvial flats. The park conserves several plant communities which have been mostly cleared.

Blackwood National Park was named after the wattle known as Belyando blackwood, Acacia argyrodendron, a beautiful tree which grows up to 10m.


Blackwood is off the Gregory Development Road (Great Inland Way) and is 180km south of Charters Towers or 15km north of Belyando Crossing.
