Best times to visit

There are lots of great things waiting for you in Copeland Tops State Conservation Area.


This season offers mild walking conditions as well as the chance to witness bird migration. For instance, the wompoo fruit-dove – Australia's largest fruit dove – migrates from lower elevations in winter to upland forests in the warmer months.


There's nothing like rainforest to keep you cool; it's always several degrees less beneath the protective canopy, so enjoy following the park's walking tracks and finding shady places to picnic during the hotter months. The park's raised elevation also contributes to these milder conditions.


Drinking water is not available in this park, so it’s a good idea to bring your own.


  • Non-flush toilets

Picnic tables

Barbecue facilities

  • Gas/electric barbecues (free)
