Travel Brochure

Ravensbourne is a nature-lovers paradise, the perfect place to getaway from the bustle of the big cities, right in the heart of Queensland 'Golden West' region on the Great Dividing Range.

Here you can enjoy the natural beauty of the Ravensbourne National Park, which protects ancient eucalypt forest, the last remnant of rainforest that once covered the area, and a number of rare bird species. There is also the nearby Deongwar State Forest and  Perseverance Creek State Forest, along with Lake Perseverance and Lake Cressbrook. To the north of Lake Perseverance is Crows Nest National Park.

With such beautiful natural landscape and vistas from the eastern escarpment, the area offers some great walks some taking you to some great scenic points such as the Gus Beutels Lookout which offers panoramic view of the range towards Toowoomba, Brisbane Valley and the Lockyer Valley.

Hampton, Crows Nest and Hatfields are some of the delightful hamlets in the region. Drop into the Hampton Information Centre to pick up some information and if you are in Crows Nest during the Crows Nest Festival (October), you can catch the unique ‘World Worm Races’.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
