Summary

Buaraba Creek track begins at the Blackbean day-use area in Ravensbourne National Park, and passes through rainforest and eucalypt forest before ending with a short descent into cool, shady Buaraba Creek.

About the region

Ravensbourne is a national park in Ravensbourne and Buaraba in South East Queensland, Australia, 33 km west of Esk. It is a small scenic park on the Great Dividing Range within the Lockyer Creek water catchment area and overlooking the Lockyer Valley. Small remnants of the rainforest and wet eucalypt forest that once covered this part of the Great Dividing Range are preserved in Ravensbourne National Park. Red soils of the park’s west and south-west support rainforest that includes eucalypt species as well as palms, vines and ferns. Sandy soils of the park’s eastern section support open eucalypt forest. The park is situated in the water catchment areas of the Brisbane River and Lockyer Creek.
