Take a short break in south east Queensland Granite Belt at one of our favourite times of the year. Late spring in the mountains heralds dramatic skies, wildflowers, comfortable walking days and cool nights radiant with stars. Walks include creek explorations, exhilarating ascents of the local peaks and shorter strolls through sub-tropical rainforest in World Heritage listed areas. From Brisbane we travel south west to Main Range National Park for rainforest and lookout walks with the option to climb Mt Mitchell. This park straddles the Great Dividing Range and is part of the Scenic Rim arc of mountains. South of Stanthorpe we spend three nights at Girraween Naitonal Park. Meaning “Place of Flowers”, Girraween National Park is famous for its granite domes, improbable balancing boulders and exquisitely water worn creek forms. Spring blooms include golden wattle, pea flowers, orchids and native bluebells. Walks lead us to fascinating underground creeks, magnificent granite outcrops and lookouts over the eucalypt forests and heathlands. Each day, we will offer a selection of popular and lesser known walks with options to hike as much or as little as you prefer. Our final walk is to the top of Australia's largest granite rock before returning to Brisbane with views of more Scenic Rim mountains.
