is a little known park located in southern Queensland near the New South
Wales border. The park is dissected by gullies and open eucalypt forest covers
rock-strewn slopes, ridges and flats. There are also many steep sided granite
hills, boulders, precariously balanced rocks, and expansive granite outcrops.
Situated in the northern extremity of the New England uplands, with an average elevation of 900m, winters
are cold reaching a minimum of -8°. Summer days are warm (25° to 30°) with cool nights.
Girraween's granite habitat is unique to Queensland. The flora and fauna resemble more southern types, with some plants and animals having their sole Queensland distribution in Girraween.
