Highlights and announcements
Take extreme care around cascades and fast flowing streams. Five people have died in accidents around the Finch Hatton Gorge area over the past 40 years, many more have been seriously injured, some of these include spinal injuries. These incidents are specifically due to slipping on the wet slippery rocks and steep wet slopes—please take these warnings seriously.
Inland from Mackay, high above the surrounding plains, a mist-shrouded mountain refuge is home to many kinds of wildlife… and quite a few happy campers!
