Luke had managed to get the day off, so we went for a bit of a drive into the area south of Ipswitch, west of the Gold Coast.

We stopped at Lake Moogerah, and did one third of the walk to the peak nearby - it was very tough going. After that, we drove to nearby Governors Chair, and walked to the lookout, an exposed rock at the top of a sheer cliff, with a magnificent view of the Boonah region.

One the way home, we headed up Tamborine Mountain, into Tamborine National Park. The drive took us through lush old growth rainforest and stopped at a delightful little campground near Cedar Creek Falls.

With all the recent rain, the Cedar Creek Falls were running well, making a mighty roar that could be heard well before it could be seen. I spent some time taking photographs of the main falls and the rockpools.

Heading back to Brisbane, we went to a Monica and Gareths house for a BBQ. It was very good to finally spend some time with Monica, we worked out its been about 8 years - far to long. Rhys made it also, and Gareths brother Gavin.
