Mount Scoria Conservation Park Picnic Area

National Park - Queensland

Favourite

Mount Scoria Conservation Park is only a short distance along a sealed road that is signposted from the Burnett Highway at Thangool. 

As you enter Thangool travelling south from Biloela, take the first turn to the right at Winston Street and follow it past the school, aerodrome and racecourse to a T-junction. Turn left and follow a bitumen road for 5 km to Mount Scoria. 

Access to the park is suitable for conventional vehicles. 

Rising 150 m above the cultivated plains, Mount Scoria is a striking local landmark protected in Mount Scoria Conservation Park. Formed by volcanic activity 20-26 million years ago, this volcanic plug features many-sided basalt columns. Have a bush picnic, go birdwatching or simply enjoy the park's wildlife.

The park's facilities include sheltered picnic tables, toilets and tank water. Remember to treat water before drinking. An automatic barbecue is provided at the day-use area and open fires are not permitted.

A walking track with information signs at the mountain's base offers great views of the mountain and gives insight into Mount Scoria's significance to the Gangulu people. There are no walking tracks to the peak and climbing the mountain is discouraged.
