Monto Information

Monto is located along Queenslandís major highway making it the perfect place for a pit-stop.

It became a mining town in the early 1870ís, when gold was discovered in the area. Huge gold nuggets as heavy as 2.7 kilograms were found, however the gold rush did not last long, and the cattle industry took over.

Apart from cattle farming, the small town is dubbed one of the best places to set up base camp and reload your supplies, before adventuring into the nearby Cania Gorge National Park.

A camping ground is also available on the outskirts of the park, for those wanting to really take in the nature.

Within the national the park you will find an abundance of nature related activities. The spectacular landscape consists of prominent sandstone cliffs, caves, eucalypt forest and dry rainforest on sheltered slopes. A walk along one of seven trails is sure to keep your senses tingling.

You will also find side gullies and creeks which are covered in amazing carpets of ferns and mosses, and above the 70-metre cliffs you will find an open woodland typical and sandstone belt. This huge national park is home to many species of wildlife, including kangaroos, possums, koalas, emus and other birds.

A favourite of the seven nature walks is the Dripping Rock and Overhang walk which is 3.2 kilometres return. It is an easy trip that begins at the southern end of the park and crosses over Three Moon Creek before passing through woodland and dry rainforest to Dripping Rock. You will view some spectacular flora before continuing past the Overhang which is a cavern formed by erosion at the base of a sandstone cliff.

The spectacular 630 hectare Cania Dam is also a sight to see within the National Park.
