Border Ranges National Park has been included on the World Heritage list as a part of the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves (Australia) along with other major rainforest stands in north-east NSW and south-east Queensland. The listing of the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserve (Australia) means that Australia has an obligation to protect the values of this subtropical rainforest, including the plants and animals that are endemic to the area.
Border Ranges National Park (31 683 hectares), a World Heritage listed rainforest park on the rim of a vast and ancient volcano, adjoins Lamington National Park in Queensland. It stretches 85 kilometres from east to west. Together with the McPherson Ranges, the Springbrook Plateau and the Nightcap National Park, Border Ranges National Park forms part of the caldera of the Mount Warning shield volcano (the largest caldera in the southern hemisphere). Border Ranges National Park appeals to naturalists, birdwatchers and geologists as well as bushwalkers with its spectacular views, pristine rainforests, waterfalls plunging into deep gorges, sparkling creeks, steep scarps and rugged ridges.
