Moogerah

Moogerah is located one hour's drive south west of Brisbane via the Cunningham Highway. For a little more scenery, take the route from Ipswich or the Gold Coast through Boonah's countryside.

Just outside Moogerah, you'll find the spectacular Moogerah Peaks and five minutes away to the north-east, lies beautiful Lake Moogerah.

Lake Moogerah is a popular destination for boating, fishing, water-skiing or for having a picnic on the grassy banks. The lake has been stocked with Australian Bass, Golden Perch, Silver Perch, Mary River Cod and Saratoga. You will need a permit to fish but there are no boating restrictions on the lake and two concrete launching ramps are provided.

The Moogerah Peaks were formed from volcanic activity over 22 million years ago and consist of Mt French, Mt Greville, Mt Moon and Mt Edwards. These peaks are popular with bushwalkers and climbers and are known for their challenging terrain. Mt French in particular is internationally renowned for its spectacular cliff faces. The peaks offer bushwalkers a physical challenge and the opportunity to experience their rugged grandeur and extensive views in relative solitude. Vegetation is mostly open eucalypt forest with heath on exposed rock faces and some rainforest in sheltered areas.

The nearby township of Aratula offers coffee shops, a bakery, restaurant, antique stores, fresh produce and gift ware. In the opposite direction, a short drive to Kalbar, Boonah or Mt Alford will provide you with opportunities to visit country pubs, coffee shops, restaurants and art galleries. Some local flower farms are also of interest.

Hotel, motel and caravan park accommodation is available within the area. There is a shire caravan park at Lake Moogerah and several good camping grounds nearby.
