Auburn River National Park is a protected area in the North Burnett Region, Queensland, Australia.[1] It is in the north-east of the locality of Hawkwood extending into southern Dykehead.[2]


The park is 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.[3]

Camping is allowed on the northern banks of the river at a campground where some facilities are provided.[4] Bush camping is also permitted.

Access is via Mundubbera-Durong Road.[3]
