Just thought I'd share a few photos from my wanderings around Mt Tibrogargan (Glasshouse Mountains, Queensland, Australia) back around 2014 with my mate Peta and her pup Aura.

It's a gorgeous place - a lot of disused 4x4 tracks, plenty of wildlife (birds, kangeroos, snakes etc) and some fairly safe spots to camp (far away enough from the roads so it's highly unlikely you'd get caught).

And in we go...

Aura leads the way down some old fire trails

Burnt trees from recent bushfires, but the green is taking over again

The road out.

If you're ever around Queensland, Australia this is only an hour or two north of Brisbane City and well worth checking out for a few hours or a few days. Just worth checking bushfire warnings, animal baiting warnings and where the Qld Government are patrolling.

Cheers! <3

@Dmac, mate it's on my LONG list of places to check out...unfortunately it's almost 2000kms away from home base. Haven't made it quite that far north just yet. There's the odd rumour of supernatural occurrence and the like around here...but Black Mountain sounds like some next level stuff.

There have been multiple shows and stories about it, Aboriginals claim there are portals to other places. Man I could go on and on but it is easier to just watch some video's of it. Hope you don't go alone! lol It's also called "The Mt of Death" Who wouldn't want to check that out?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
