Trip Report by Amyo: Brisbane Ranges hike

Day 1:

We left on Saturday morning. The drive took about 2 hours. We were relieved to get out of the car, me and Mum then went to a cafe with no power, while Frasero was sleeping. After that we went to look at 3 mine shafts. Then we started our actual walk it was around 3 km. We were really tired and to our surprise there was another family already there.

  1. Great post – Your mine shafts looked much better than the few we found. Did you end up finding the rock-hopping place on the walk back?

  2. Good job cousin Amyo, is your dad able to identify other creatures ? Ie. Giraffe? Elephant? Monkey? Does he need some help?

  3. Hi there i was just wondering if that was the centruy mine shaft in the photo above? I live in Stiglitz and am very interested in the old mining history however i do not recognise the mine in the photo above and was wondering if you could tell me where it is
    Cheers Nathan

    1. Hi Nathan,
      I just checked my map and I am pretty sure the photo was of the Century Mine. From memory it was under some sort of shelter/hut and there was some mesh across the top of the shaft to prevent access.
      I hope this helps.
