Richmond Range NP Accommodation
Richmond Range National Park encompasses the rainforests of Cambridge Plateau, which are included on the World Heritage List as part of the 'Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves of Australia'. This chain of reserves protects most of the remaining areas of rainforest in south east Queensland and north east New South Wales. These internationally significant rainforests have an outstanding diversity of native plants and animals including many rare and threatened species. The remarkable natural values of these areas make them worthy of World Heritage recognition.Richmond Range is a remnant of the once giant Focal Peak volcano thought to have been active some 24 million years ago. Focal Peak in Queensland is the remaining central vent, ringed by a series of smaller vents and landforms across the NSW/Queensland border.The Focal Peak area, with its rich and variable soils and high rainfall, sustains some of the world's best rainforest remnants.
