Eungella National Park is in Queensland, Australia.

Understand[edit]

Eungella National Park is a park of subtropical rainforest about 70km northwest of Mackay. Although there are local and international visitors, it is not nearly as popular as other tourist destinations in Queensland. This rainforest is one of the oldest subtropical forests in Australia. In the language of the Aboriginal people of this area, Eungella means Land of Clouds.

History[edit]

Landscape[edit]

Flora and fauna[edit]
