Soouthern Queensland

Nearly out of Queensland. Heading south. Ravensbourne’s rainforest has seen many changes. Aboriginal people camped and gathered food here long before timber-getters arrived to log the forests.

Then on past Lake Somerset to The Blackall Range. Just near Maleny you can see over the Glasshouse Mountains near to the coast.

Just before Kenilworth there is a nice patch of rainforest with big strangler figs.

High up in the mountains, there is the town of Mapleton with the nearby Mapleton National Park.

On the northern side of Lake Baroom there is a dam and spillway. This morning the fog was closed in.

Heading up into the hills again, I stopped at the Andrew Drynan Park just before the Border Ranges and New South Wales.
