QLD Rochampton - Mt Jim Crow National Park

Volcanic activity created Mt Jim Crow, a trachyte plug protected in Mt Jim Crow National Park. The base and lower slopes of this impressive dome are covered in semi-evergreen vine thickets and hoop pines tower over the dry rainforest.

Mt Jim Crow is important to the local Aboriginal people. A Dreaming legend tells the story of how this mountain was created by the rainbow serpent.


Mt Jim Crow is 29km east of Rockhampton, about halfway along the Rockhampton to Yeppoon Road.
