The park is 35,700 hectares large and serves as a home for many wildlife including threatened species. Visitors are encouraged to be mindful during their time here, engaging in healthy tourism practices such as picking up after your own rubbish and not touching any plants or animals you may come across. The park itself has scenic walking and driving tracks, though campsites are located near the streams and rainforests for those who want to spend a night or two here.

If you prefer plush accommodations instead of camping, there are luxury accommodation options available around here too. Kookaburra Park is also wonderful for its boutique caravan amenities and glamping in the midst of a hobby farm located within the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

For those who want to make the most out of the park, going on the Conondale Range Great Walk is highly encouraged. It takes four full days to accomplish the 56km walk as it takes you to witness all the highlights of the park. With all the hike trails, lookout points, and unspoilt scenery here, this is a place you will definitely want to spend some time in. After all, many believe it’s home to the most stunning tropical waterfalls in all of Queensland!

The Mount Allen Trail is equally popular. It can be done on foot, horseback, or bike, and is a 9km circuit through the park. This trail is recommended for those of good fitness abilities as it involves steep inclines and walks through extremely rugged terrain. You will be rewarded greatly with panoramic views of the Mary Valley, Imbil State Forest, and the Conondale Range.

The Conondale National Park is a magnificent attraction that should be visited at least once in everyone’s lifetime.
