Baga National Park (formerly known as Mount Jim Crow National Park) is a national park in Queensland, Australia, 531 kilometres (330 mi) northwest of Brisbane.[1][2]

It lies just beside the main road between Rockhampton and Yeppoon. Camping is not permitted in the park and there are no facilities.[3]

The main feature of the park is Baga, a trachyte plug which is a remnant of an extinct volcano.[3]

The Darumbal people have traditionally regarded Baga as a significance place in their Dreamtime stories.[3]
