I really do forget that Queensland has mountain ranges, and a GORGEOUS mountainese area is Mount Maroon. It being a short 90K drive from Brisbane makes it super accessable and perfect for an overnight camp. There are a few stunning lakes scattered throughout this area. I am fairly sure swimming isn’t allowed but water sports are definitely dabbled in. After cruising around to a few of the lakes and seeing a million cows we headed back to camp and cooked camenbert and rosemary on the fire with a baguette and a few cheeky bottles of red. The stars were out in full force. It was incredible to be out of the city, so good for the soul…
The next morning we hiked Mount Maroon, we started just before 10 and it took us just over three hours. Highly recommend. Really enjoyable hike and wouldn’t say you have to be crazy fit. I’ve heard this hike gets super busy but luckily we only passed a few couples on the track. We actually also did a 5 minute meditation at the top, which felt so freeing. To open your eyes to a view like this…..
Definitely a spot worth visiting. Until next time. More trips like this! And home to Brisvegas lockdown, fun xxxxx
Hope everyone is well! x
