Paluma Range is a national park located between Ingham and Townsville, in north Queensland, Australia. The park is 1188 km north of Brisbane. The park contains the Jourama Falls, Crystal Creek and Lake Paluma. Most of it lies within the Paluma Important Bird Area (IBA), so identified by BirdLife International because it is a southern outlier for many species and contains a significant population of the vulnerable southern cassowary.
On National Parks Day 2010 (Sunday, 28 March 2010), the Queensland State Government announced the addition of 6,510 hectares to the Paluma Range National Park.
