Duggan Bushland Park

The park is accessed via Collier Street or Lesley Street, Rangeville, Toowoomba. It is eight hectares in size and is primarily a eucalypt forest ecosystem (12.5.6). There is also a report of an unusual fungus found in the park. The park has a natural fault line.

The FEP has produced a book of the plants found in J E Duggan Park with colour photographs of each plant. This is an excellent guide for identification. The book can be purchased from the FEP for $5. If you would like a copy, please contact the Secretary by email secretaryFEP@gmail.com.

The 2023 park report describes the work currently being undertaken by FEP.

The park is named after John (Jack) Duggan, former Queensland Deputy Premier, Opposition leader and Mayor of Toowoomba. A plaque also acknowledges Multuggerah, a leader among the Jagera people in the 1830s-1840s who united diverse groups and successfully led resistance to European settlement for three years 1843 – 1846.

Duggan Park is the only all abilities bushland park in Toowoomba. There are four short walks with views of the Great Dividing Range and Table Top Mountain (Meewah)” 

Volunteers meet on the second Saturday of the month. If you might be interested in becoming involved, please contact Kaye – Phone: 0402 183 087 | Email: kwoodriley@gmail.com.

A comprehensive survey of birdlife was undertaken in 2023. Observations recorded in eBird and iNaturalist offer up to date information about fauna and flora observed in the park.
