I’ve often overlooked Mount French, because it’s rated so easy, which is a shame because I visited on Saturday during wet weather and the views were 💯
I’m planning on taking the family next time we’re in the scenic rim.
On Saturday morning I had plans to climb Flinder’s Peak, but it was too wet, so I took some photos of some cows instead 🐄
Last Sunday we went on an afternoon drive to the scenic rim to visit Lake Moogerah for a picnic. On the way Kitty spotted a sign for a Camel Farm and Diary so we stopped on the way home, of course. Summer Land Camel Farm only opens Sundays from 9:30 to 4 and has a cafe and an area where you can get up close and feed the camels – we all loved it so much!
I took the opportunity this morning to hike to the summit of Mount Maroon: part of the scenic rim in South Eastern Queensland. Whilst Mount Maroon isn’t as accessible to Brisbane as Flinder’s Peak, the 360 degree views from the summit make the drive and the climb to the top definitely worthwhile.
I was stoked to see a large cairn at the peak when I arrived, and I was lucky enough to have the summit to myself and I felt on top of the world whilst I sat and admired the view in every direction.
The track was hard and didn’t have many markings at all so it was easy to get lost which briefly happened to me. If you visit take plenty of water and only visit on a cool dry day as the rocks would be very slippery and dangerous when wet.
