    The way to access this waterfall, is by boat. Head to the opposite side of the Lake from where you have put your boat in, and into the inlet with the higher cliffs.
    In here is the waterfall, usually only running after rain. This quiet spot is where people go swimming underneath the waterfall.

    NAMES OF THE PEAKS
    Mount French .......Mount Edwards .....Mount Greville.....Mount Moon

    Another great National Park, that is an easy 80km drive from Brisbane.

    Mounts French, Greville, Moon and Edwards, are all ancient, volcanic peaks that have formed into unique shapes. There are walks in all of them, except Mt. Moon, which is located on private property.

    The peaks are mostly covered in open eucalypt forest, and a lot of other small shrubs as undergrowth. We came here in Spring, and a lot of these shrubs were in flower, and the small Birds that love this kind of territory, were twittering everywhere. We saw the beautiful red-backed Fairy Wren.
    There are magnificent exposed rock faces, and on Mt. French, it is not unusual to see rock climbers and abseilers here.
    There are magnificent views of the Fassifern Valley and its paddocks of green and brown.

    Not only the national park, but there is a lot more to see and do in this area. There are Motels & Caravan Park at Boonah & Aratula, also limited camping within Moogerah Peaks National Park, with Mount French section providing the only campground.
    This campground is not suitable for caravans. Camping permits are required and fees apply. As the campground is small, advance bookings are necessary.

    So, if you have a car, I suggest a trip to this lovely part of Queensland that is located not too far from Brisbane.

    Maroon Dam is located not that far from Lake Moogerah.

    This Dam also has very nice picnic areas, with tables & chairs, Toilets, BBQ's [these are wood] and plenty of large lawned area for that game of Cricket!
    That lake allows powered boats, sailboats, kayaks, canoes, jetski's, just to name a few.
    This lake is not quite as popular as Moogerah, but still is very nice. For watersports, it is more protected from the wind than Moogerah.
    Usually, you will see the odd Kangaroo grazing on the lawns here.
