Product Description

Includes the new South East Queensland DVD

South East Queensland is endowed with an immense variety of natural bushland. No other region of Australia has such a diverse range of wilderness scenery in such close proximity, from the vast sandy regions of Fraser and Moreton Islands to the rainforests of Springbrook and Lamington, the rocky peaks of Mount Barney and the granite outcrops of Girraween. Nearly every major Australian wilderness type is represented here.

Covers Tamborine, Springbrook, Lamington, Border Ranges, Mount Barney, Main Range, Flinders Peak, the Great Walk and the full Scenic Rim Traverse.

The jewel in the crown as far as mountain scenery goes is the Scenic Rim and that is what this book is about. The Scenic Rim is a long chain of mountains beginning at Point Danger on the Gold Coast and then leading westwards to encompass Springbrook, Lamington, the Border Ranges, Lever’s Plateau and the high rocky peaks of Mount Lindesay and Mount Barney before joining the Great Dividing Range at Wilsons Peak. Here the Rim turns northwards, following the Main Range through Cunningham’s Gap and then the ridge crest further northwards to the Mistake Mountains and the Little Liverpool Range near Laidley. This guide describes bushwalks and climbs in these superb ranges as well as the nearby areas of Tamborine and Flinders Peak.

By Robert Rankin , Rankin Publishers

This updated version … a very informative guidebook for those picking it up for the first time. Including colour photography, maps and location-specific details, Rankin presents an exhaustive resource for anyone seeking to go adventuring in the region. While the focus is on bushwalking and a certain amount of climbing, the lists of campsites, notes on flora and fauna as well as added historical information means this guide would be a wise investment for anyone wishing to visit Queensland’s Scenic Rim.
