Description Blackwood National Park is on the Gregory Developmental Road (Great Inland Way), 15 km north of Belyando Crossing and 180 km south of Charters Towers. Contact the Department of Transport and Main Roads to find out about local road conditions. Vehicles are not permitted beyond the car park. Blackwood National Park is named after an acacia known as blackwood or black gidyea Acacia argyrodendron. These beautiful trees grow to 10 m high and have a solid single trunk and dark furrowed bark. Narrow, slightly curved grey-green leaves form a distinctive crowned canopy. Blackwood National Park has diverse plant communities typical of the Brigalow Belt. The park features undulating hills intercepted by stony ridges and alluvial flats of sandy clays and black soils. Vegetation is dominated by acacia and eucalypt communities with diverse native grassland understoreys. Blackwood and lancewood woodlands occur on stony ridges along with clumps of spinifex and pockets of dry rainforest. Box eucalypts and scattered coolibah trees grow along the alluvial flats. There is a caravan park and camping area at Belyando Crossing, 15 km south of the park. A range of other accommodation including hotels, camping and caravan parks can be found at Clermont and Charters Towers. There are two walking tracks in Blackwood National Park. The tracks are not regularly maintained and can be overgrown with vegetation. Domestic animals are not permitted in Blackwood National Park.
