Cania Gorge National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
A huge sandstone belt stretches right through the middle of Queensland and Cania Gorge is part of this massive belt. 70 metre high sandstone cliffs, rain forested gullies, caves and open eucalypt forest typify this area of Queensland. The Cania Gorge National Park covers over 3,000 ha and is a haven for native animals in the area.

Unlike most national parks in Queensland camping is not permitted in the park, however facilities are available just north of the park and in Monto 11 km south. Walking tracks are easy to get to and provide magnificent views of the sandstone cliffs and their features such as Dripping Rock a magnificent natural fernery and the Overhang. Walks to Dragon Cave and Bloodwood Cave are also available and easy to get to. Platypus, kangaroo, bettongs, wallabies, koala, and many bird species call the park home.

King Orchids and elk horns abound in certain areas quite close to the picnic areas. Other features of the park include the old gold mines. For the more adventurous walkers there are still old mining batteries, mullock heaps and storage sheds to investigate. Be careful of the mine shafts in the region. Gold fossicking is not permitted in national parks.

Just to the north of Cania Gorge National Park is Lake Cania, a popular water sport area and fishing precinct. Sailing, canoeing and swimming are all popular here.
