Mount Barney National Park is a national park in Queensland (Australia), 90 km southwest of Brisbane. It amalgamated the adjacent Mount Lindesay National Park in 1980. It is part of the Scenic Rim Important Bird Area, identified as such by BirdLife International because of its importance in the conservation of several species of threatened birds.
Mounts Barney, Maroon, May and Lindesay rise majestically above the surrounding farmlands in Mount Barney National Park on the Queensland/New South Wales border. These rugged peaks are the remains of the ancient Focal Peak Shield Volcano which erupted 24 million years ago. Mount Barney (1359m) is the second highest peak in south-east Queensland and has some very rare and unique plants. The town of Rathdowney is closest, 15 km to the northeast. This spectacular park became part of the World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests of Australia (formerly known as the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves) in 1994.
The park is dominated by the grand twin peaks of Mount Barney. Surrounding these peaks are numerous mountains, steep valleys, caves, deep rock pools and lots of woodland forest. The park also contains the peaks of Mount Ballow, Mount Ernest, Mount Maroon and Mount May. Bush camping is allowed at Mount May and Mount Barney. Restrictions apply during peak holiday times. Book your campsite at least three weeks before your visit. You can also camp nearby in private campgrounds at Flanagans Reserve (near Yellow Pinch), Bigriggen and Mt Barney Lodge.
