Places to Visit

Cania Gorge

Cania Gorge National Park can be reached via Cania Road which branches off the Burnett Highway 77 km south of Biloela (12 km north of Monto).

Towering, ochre-coloured sandstone cliffs, gorges, caves and amazing walks are just some of the attractions of Cania Gorge National Park.

Bushwalkers can choose from walks of varying length and difficulty. The longest track, a 5.6 kilometre loop, takes in the Giant's Chair lookout and offers excellent views.

A short walk from the carpark leads to mining relics at the historic Shamrock goldmine site.

Watch for platypus in Three Moon Creek.

More than 90 species of birds have been recorded in the park.

Aboriginal people have lived in Cania Gorge for at least 19,000 years. Freehand art on the sandstone walls is a reminder of their special way of life.

Lake Cania is the ideal spot to view the unspoilt beauty of the awesome sculpted sandstone rock formations, such as Castle Mountain and the overhanging cliffs that form the escarpment of Cania Gorge.

The lake has been well stocked with Australian Bass, Yellowbelly, Silver Perch and the highly-prized Saratoga.
