The largest section occupies the western third of Beatrice and the eastern fringe of Ravenshoe on the Atherton Tableland. The smaller section is in the north of Maalan. It belongs to the Wet Tropics of Queensland bioregion. The park was established to protect significant animal and plant communities. The areas were previously known as Dirran State Forest. It is adjacent to Tully Gorge National Park and Mount Fisher Forest Reserve.
The park provides habitat for the endangered spotted-tailed Quoll, large-eared horseshoe bat and the vulnerable flute-nosed bat. A total of four rare or threatened species have been recorded in the park.
