The Main Range National Park was an area Keith loved and we celebrate his contribution to the Association in this Memorial Walk. Following a marked trail, the Mt Mathieson circuit proceeds to the top of Mt Mathieson. The track ascends a steep, rocky ridge onto the southeast slopes of Mt Mitchell. The trail flattens out, passing through forest and open clearing before coming across an old bullock-drawn timber jinker and an example of a historic road built by squatters during the nineteenth century. Onto the Governor’s Chair and prior to completing the circuit, we will peek in at Moss’s Well, the site of an age old spring that provided fresh water for those passing through Spicer’s Gap on their journey over the Darling Downs. The walk finishes back at the Picnic area.
