Topaz Road is a national park in Far North Queensland, Australia, 1,348 km northwest of Brisbane. It covers an area of 0.4 km² [1]. According to the Queensland Government, "Topaz Road National Park protects remnant rainforest in the upper Johnstone River catchment. The park and nearby nature refuges form a network of protected areas that adjoin Wooroonooran National Park, providing habitat connectivity for a wide variety of Wet Tropics species."[2]
