The Cedar Block circuit is a short self-guided walk starting at the bottom of the Cedar Block day-use area in Ravensbourne National Park. Learn about the rainforest-and how it was used by Aboriginal travellers and timber-getters-from signs along the way. Admire panoramic views from Gus Beutel lookout near the day-use area.
About the region
Discover towering trees, palm groves, trickling streams and amazing birdlife in the best remaining example of the rainforest that originally covered this part of the Great Dividing Range. Local Aboriginal people and those travelling to the bunya feasts in the Bunya Mountains used the area extensively. Rainforest hardwoods, red cedar Toona ciliata and other timbers were felled from about the 1860s. About 14km east of Hampton (32km north of Toowoomba) or 33km west of Esk via the Esk–Hampton Road.
