Danbulla National Park and State Forest

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Danbulla, featuring forests, plantations and World Heritage listed-rainforest, is nestled between the Tinaroo and Lamb ranges and stretches along the banks of picturesque Lake Tinaroo.

Spend the day exploring the walking tracks, lookouts, drives and picnic areas along the 28 kilometre Danbulla Drive.

Choose a secluded camping site at School Point or let the kids kick a football around the grassed area at The Chimneys. Enjoy a short walk through the upland rainforest to Mobo Creek Crater or take time to marvel at the size of the Cathedral fig tree.

Get wet and active on the waters of Lake Tinaroo—fishing, swimming, kayaking and waterskiing are all popular. You can fish year round for the lake’s monster barra and even catch a feed of redclaw for dinner.

Whatever you do, remember to always take your camera. This area has a fascinating history and is alive with all types of wildlife.

Take care when driving. Danbulla Road is narrow, unsealed and has sharp curves and rough surfaces. Be aware of other vehicles, logging trucks, pedestrians and wildlife on the road. The Tablelands Regional Council has erected signs indicating this road is unsuitable for caravans.
