This is the stuff Australia is best known for - craggy mountain ranges, rocky outcrops, grass trees, eucalypts and paperbarks towering above, leafy litter on the ground and a well-worn hiking path leading to the top of somewhere special.
About the region
Mount Larcom is the name of a mountain, a township and a locality in the Gladstone Region, Queensland. The township is at the junction of the Bruce Highway and Gladstone Mount Larcom Road approximately 70 kilometres south of the city of Rockhampton. Commander Matthew Flinders named Mount Larcom (the mountain) on 4 August 1802, after a Royal Navy colleague Captain Thomas Larcom. For most of the colonial period the spelling for the name of the region around the mountain was Mount Larcombe. It reverted to the spelling of Mount Larcom in the early 1900s. In 1854, the region was made available for pastoral farming by the colonial British Government of New South Wales. The following year, William Young, a Scottish colonist who was previously a storekeeper at Gayndah, established the Mount Larcombe sheep station.
