Sixteen kilometres from Cairns (Kuranda National Park) and 7 km from Mossman (Mowbray National Park)
Kuranda National Park and adjacent Mowbray National Park are entirely within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area ( http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/world-heritage-areas/wet-tropics/index.html ). They feature both rainforest and open eucalypt forest and protect an important wildlife corridor between centres of biodiversity in the Daintree/Carbine Tableland area to the north and Lamb Range/Atherton Tableland area to the south.
The pyramid-shaped Black Mountain towers over tropical rainforest and open eucalypt forest, on the western slopes of the Macalister Range.
Camping is not permitted in Kuranda and Mowbray national parks. Camping is available at nearby Speewah Regional Park ( http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/parks/speewah/index.html ).
