Auburn River is a national park in Queensland, Australia, 277 km northwest of Brisbane. The park is located on the Auburn River, a tributary of the Burnett River, south-west of Mundubbera.

Auburn River National Park was established in 1964 and features a steep river gorge and hardwood forests. It contains some relics from a brief, unsuccessful goldrush in the late 19th century.[1]

Camping is allowed on the northern banks of the river at a campground where some facilities are provided.[2] Bush camping is also permitted.

Access is via Mundubbera-Durong Road.[1]
