Todays adventure took us up a hidden valley towards the imposing cliffs of the Macpherson Range and the headwaters of Running Creek.
Almost 200 years ago, a convict named John Baker escaped the brutal Moreton Bay penal colony to live with the Goomburra Aboriginal People in the Lockyer Valley. He walked long distances with them following winding tracks up and down the Great Dividing Range. Today we followed some of those tracks.
Today we decided to follow Burnett Creek as far as we could, from Lake Maroon, under the towering McPherson Range, towards its source on the slopes of the Great Divide.
