QLD Rochampton - Mt Archer Conservation Park

On Rockhampton’s northern doorstep, Mt Archer National Park protects bushland remnants in the Berserker Ranges, a scenic backdrop to the city. Mt Archer (604m) is the highest peak.

Open forest clothes the mountain while lush subtropical rainforest grows in sheltered pockets, making this park a haven for wildlife.

This is the traditional land of the Darambul people who hunted game and gathered rainforest fruits along the creeks. Mt Archer was named after the early pioneers of the Rockhampton area


Mt Archer is on Rockhampton’s northern outskirts. The summit is reached from Frenchville Road and Pilbeam Drive. The bottom entrance is off Old Norman Road and German Street.
