A couple of hours north of Brisbane, the Great Sandy National Park protects an expanse of coastal heathland, paperbark swamp, dune lakes, and beaches. It is home to rare species like Ground Parrot, Regent Honeyeater and a group of ‘acid frogs’, species of Litoria and Crinia that are adapted to the acidic waters of the lakes.
