Spicers Gap

A landscape of rugged mountains, spectacular lookouts, exhilarating walks, dappled forests and unique wildlife is waiting to be explored.
Discover walks through lush tropical rainforest, fragrant eucalypts and colourful montane heath. Rock-hop across pristine mountain streams and pause at cascading waterfalls. Visit sites and relics that hark back to harsh pioneering days.
Take in the views from spectacular lookouts dotted all over this impressive landscape. You’ll be captivated by the ancient peaks, dramatic escarpments and forest-cloaked slopes and valleys.
Load up your pack and explore the far-flung reaches of the park. Let your spirits soar as you experience the thrill of navigating steep climbs, rocky outcrops, dense forest and rugged cliffs to reach a secluded mountaintop camp site that is all yours.
Or relax and unwind from city life by enjoying lunch with family and friends at one of the park’s shaded picnic areas nestled in cool forest beside a clear mountain stream.
Whatever your calling—a relaxing daytrip, an adrenaline-fueled hike, or a camping adventure—make Main Range National Park your next getaway destination.

Main Range National Park is 116km south-west of Brisbane and 50km east of Warwick. The Cunningham Highway crosses the park at Cunninghams Gap and provides access to the northern part of the park, which includes visitor facilities and walks at Cunninghams Gap and Goomburra.

The eastern approach to Spicers Gap is suitable for conventional vehicles and is reached via Lake Moogerah Road, which leaves the Cunningham Highway 5km west of Aratula, then Spicers Gap Road. Spicers Gap Road ends at Governors Chair car park.

The western approach towards Spicers Gap is suitable only for high-clearance 4WD vehicles and should be avoided in wet weather. Spicers Gap Road leaves the southern side of the Cunningham Highway 4.5km west of Cunninghams Gap. The road ends at the Mount Mathieson car park. Gates must be left as found. Vehicles are to remain on Spicers Gap Road at all times.
