Tregole is a national park in South West Queensland, Australia, 603 km west of Brisbane. Until the gazetting of the park in 1975, the area was a grazing property. The park is located where the brigalow and mulga biospheres meet and has a representative sample of semi-arid ecosystems.

The park contains almost pure stands of the vulnerable Ooline tree.[1] The Ooline stand in Tregole is unusual as the climate is hot and dry.

The park has no camping facilities. A day-use area is 10 kilometres south of Morven on the Morven-Bollon Road.[2] There is a short (2.1 km) walk in the day-use area.
