Mount Archer

 

Mount Archer National Park protects bushland remnants in the Berserker Ranges, a scenic backdrop to Rockhampton. At 604 m above sea level, Mount Archer is the highest peak and provides spectacular views of the city and the surrounding ranges. The park covers 4250 ha of open forest and woodland communities dominated by eucalypts, with a large pocket of dry rainforest in the deeply incised Moores Creek valley. The dry rainforest communities are areas of high conservation value and include several plant species with restricted distributions.

Walking

You can explore Mount Archer’s summit on two short walks within the council-managed Fraser Park, starting from the picnic area.

Picnic and day use areas

Enjoy a picnic at Fraser Park, on Mount Archer’s summit. Rockhampton Regional Council manages this park and day use area. Picnic tables, barbecues and wood, drinking water and toilets are provided.

Viewing wildlife

Mount Archer is home to a variety of woodland birds including vulnerable powerful owls. Glossy black-cockatoos can also be seen feeding on she-oak seeds. If you wait quietly, you may see unadorned rock-wallabies come to drink from Moores Creek in the early morning and late afternoon. Keep alert and remain quiet—you might be surprised by what you find at Mount Archer.
