7km from Mossman. The pyramid-shaped Black Mountain towers over tropical rainforest and open eucalypt forest. Two parks (Mowbray National Park and Kuranda National Park) occupy the western slopes of the Macalister Range, which runs parallel to the coast between Cairns and Mossman. Black Mountain Road, an unsealed road, runs through both parks, as well as state forest and private land, from the Kennedy Highway in the south to the Mossman-Mount Molloy Road, near Julatten, in the north. Mowbray National Park is entirely within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. It features both rainforest and open eucalypt forest and protect an important wildlife corridor between centres of biodiversity in the Daintree/Carbine Tableland area to the north and Lamb Range/Atherton Tableland area to the south.
