Hann Tableland is a national park in Far North Queensland (Australia), 1,436 km northwest of Brisbane. It is located in the northern section of Paddys Green, a locality in the Tablelands Region local government area. It was first set aside as national park in 1989 and nearly doubled in size with an expansion in 2004.[1]

The park is located within the Einasleigh Uplands bioregion and the Mitchell River water catchment area.[2]

The national park was established to conserve the forests of the Hann Tableland mountain range.[1] Three rare or threatened plant species have been identified within the Hann Tableland National Park.[2] It lacks visitor facilities with the exception of the Bicentennial National Trail.[1]
