Paluma Range National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located north west of Townsville the Paluma Range National Park is actually made up of two sections the Jourama Falls and Mount Spec sections covering an area of some 7,200 ha within the World Heritage Wet Tropics area which covers some 9000 sq kilometres of far north Queensland.

Here you will find some of the best examples of high Australian Rainforest, Mt Spec rising over 1000m in height receives nearly 3000mm of rain annually that's  120" in the old scale and 3 times the rainfall of the surrounding country side. The parks are networked with small rivers and waterfalls including Waterview Creek which in turn feeds Jourama Falls one of many waterfalls, and cascades and river rapids throughout the area.

There are numerous rare and endangered animals living in the park and the number of unusual native birds is astounding. Camping is permitted in some areas and walking tracks are available. Permits must be obtained before entering the park.

Contact the local Parks and Wildlife Service or visit the QLD National parks, marine parks and forests website. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
