The Tewantin National Park is a 13 square kilometre national park in Queensland, Australia. It consists of five individual areas west of Noosa Heads in the Wide Bay-Burnett region about 115 kilometres north of Brisbane and 125 km south of Hervey Bay. The park is divided into disconnected sections within Lake Macdonald, Tinbeerwah, Tewantin and Noosaville.

The national park protects coastal rainforest, bright eucalyptus forest and the last remnants of Wallum Heath between Noosa and Cooray. The Mount Tinbeerwah (265 m) is composed of solidified lava, which was created by volcanic activity millions of years ago. In its surroundings you can find the endangered Swamp Stringybark (Eucalyptus conglomerata) with its many trunks, gray, fibrous bark and bunches of white flowers.

Many amphibians live in the park, including the nearly endangered Tusked Frog (Adelotus brevis) and the endangered or threatened Green-thighed frog, Wallum froglet, and Giant barred frog. About 70 different bird species have been observed in the park, including the almost endangered Red-browed treecreeper.

  • Nice park, nice forest, but cannot find natural old growth forest that has never been cleared or logged  more »
  • Decided to visit this scenic lookout after visiting Cooroy. Definitely worth the side trip and the views are spectacular from the top. Approximately 400 metres from car park up a well maintained walk....  more »
  • This is a short walk for just about everyone, however, it is up hill and steep at times. If you can walk you can do this at your own pace. The lookout at the top is worth the walk. At times during the week, they have schools kids learning absailing off the cliffs. The road in turns to dirt but easy safe road.
  • The walk up Tinbeerwah is as rewarding as it is easy. Its paved and stairs with railings at the edge of most of the cliffs. It has a great 360° view from the top. The main cliff is great for rock climbing and rapelling with lots of bolted routes with rings at the top of a lot of pitches.
