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.
