Danbulla National Park and State Forest

Danbulla State Forest Tinaroo

The Atherton Tableland Yidinji Aboriginal people welcome you to Danbulla and ask that you respect their special place.

There’s so much to see and do here! With forests, plantations and World Heritage listed-rainforest, this park 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 28km Danbulla Drive, or set up base at a lakeside camp site that will tick all your camping boxes.

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.

Back on dry land, jump in the 4WD (or on your bike!) and head into the rugged Lamb Range beneath ever-changing forests and along graceful mountain streams.

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

Danbulla National Park is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, famed for its exceptional natural beauty, outstanding examples of the record of life, evolutionary history and remarkable diversity.

Stay in one of the five camping areas along Danbulla Road and enjoy the unique features of the area including crater lakes, strangler figs, rainforest walks and places of important local history and interest. Camping permits are required and fees apply.
