Coalstoun Lakes

Coulstoun Lakes rises 200 metres above a broad cultivated valley, Mt Le Brun, an extinct volcano, contains two large craters which form shallow lakes. Formed more than 600,000 years ago, the mountain is one of the youngest volcanic formations in Australia.

Protected by Coalstoun Lakes National Park, the lakes were named after Coalstoun in Scotland by Wade Brun, manager of nearby Ban Ban Station. Perfect for those wanting to observe nature or participate in some birdwatching, visitors can park at the base and make their way up the side of the crater for views and spectacular rural scenery.

Mount Walsh National Park

Biggenden, North Burnett Area
A prominent landmark in the Biggenden region is the granite bluff area of Mount Walsh, in the northern part of mountainous Mount Walsh National Park. Exposed granite outcrops, rugged ridges and steep forested slopes support a range of vegetation. Follow the 300 metre trail from the picnic area through open eucalypt forest to a rocky creek gully fringed in rainforest, then on to lookouts over surrounding countryside. With caution, experienced walkers can take the strenuous (unmarked) two and a half hour hike to Mount Walsh's bare granite summit. You will be rewarded with stunning views.
