Kroombit Tops National Park is a spectacular hinterland experience full of natural beauty.
Towering sandstone cliffs, waterfalls, wild landscapes, deep cut gorges, tranquil creeks and peaceful campsites. Kroombit is home to a unique endangered species, the Kroombit Tinkerfrog. Kroombit Tops is just 85 kilometres from Gladstone and it's also a 4WD enthusiast's dream come true.
There are a large number of touring routes to explore of varying difficulty levels throughout the hinterland. Camp overnight, or take a day trip out of Gladstone. The park has some great walking trails too, so you can bushwalk to your hearts content.
The region is teeming with life. Birdwatchers will be over the moon and you’re likely to see all sorts of iconic native wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, bush wallabies and much more. Discover the resting place of a crashed World War II B-24D Liberator bomber "Beautiful Betsy" which went down in 1945 with all hands lost.
There’s a scenic 4WD loop to get there and then a 700m (return) track to get to the crash site. Head to Kroombit Tops National Park for a fantastic natural getaway out of Gladstone.
