Girraween National Park Part I

Over the Easter long weekend I visited Girraween National Park for the first time. It is located about three hours southwest of Brisbane along the border with New South Wales in the Granite Belt, the coolest part of Queensland (the region is famous for its apples). The most striking feature of the park is the many granite rock outcroppings scattered throughout, which I think contribute to the “beginning of time” atmosphere of the area. This first post was taken around Bald Rock Creek where there was recently a bushfire, and the combination of the rainy weather, charred and blackened trees and the rocky landscape was definitely a sight to behold.
