Perched on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, Ravensbourne was a traditional bush tucker refreshment stop for Aboriginal people en route to and from the Bunya Mountains nut festivals. Punctuated by patches of rainforest, the drive to Ravensbourne along the winding Esk-Hampton road is one of the regions prettiest drives.
Ravensbourne National park is a day-use park with short walks through palm groves, rain forest and open eucalypt forest teeming with native birds. Gus Beutel lookout provides a panoramic view over the Lockyer Valley and the Border Ranges, and offers a beautiful picnic spot.
You can go bush walking, boating, fishing, bird watching or picnic at nearby Lakes Cressbrook and Perseverance. There's a well appointed camping ground at Lake Cressbrook or you can relax and revitalise in the high country air with a stay in a self-contained accommodation amidst Ravenbourne's rainforest and rolling hills.
