“Beautiful National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Beautiful National Park with several short walks in the rainforest. Amazing views on the Pioneer Valley. Good place to spot the Platypus. We've seen one at the bridge over the Broken River, didn't have any luck on the Platypus Viewing Platform.
Explorers Haven is a good place to stay at Eungella. It's a caravan park which has a beautiful on the Pioneer Valley, they have cabins too. The Eungella Chalet near the caravan park offers simple pub meals and take away.
Don't forget Finch Hatton Gorge down in the Pioneer Valley, beatiful gorge walk with several waterfalls.

“Just Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

Went looking for duck billed platypus. Even though my timings was wrong I did see one along with turtles.when combined wit the lovely rainforest walk - a great way to spend a couple of hours . The drive there with its view was an experience in itself .

“Undiscovered treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2011

The Eungella National Park isn't well advertised or spoken about (at least I hadn't heard of it!). We passed by as we wanted a change from the beach scenery and oh my, what a beautiful place.
Not only it is the most certain place in the world to see platypus in the wild, it has fantastic tracks for trekking and great scenery with its mountain and valleys.
Definitely something to see that I wouldn't miss in Queensland.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2011

Travelled up the valley to Eungella. The view down to the valley was amazing. Took my breath away. Went to where the platypuses and turtles swim in the river. Also stopped at the world famous Pinnacle Pies. An all round trip not to be missed.
