QLD - Queen Mary Falls

It was suggested as a venue for one of our gatherings so I thought I would post photos, though they are not the best, taken from video.

According to Google Earth the altitude is 870m, so it will be quite chilly in the winter months.

If you have any good photos feel free to post.

You are bringing back memories...we camped there nearly 20 years ago.The bush was full of ticks and we still wear the scars... the poor dog nearly died...in fact she did from old age 6 weeks later.

Pretty spot but...

Ticks can be quite a problem when camping for both pets and people. I know Glendon west of Warwick has a real problem with them and whilst I did not get any when I was there, friends camping with me got several.

I did manage to pick up 2 when camping recently and did not find them for some 24 hours or so. I ended up being quite sick and it took me about 4 weeks to recover. Cheers Gypsy...

Sorry Chick, did not realize that the ticks were the reason for you not taking your pooch.

Cheers gypsy....

Ticks are every where when we went to sharp park for the november meet, Marks dog got a tick he didnt find it for 4 days untill it fell off, the dog was ill cost him $500 + to fix as long as you are vigilant have your pet protected with advocate or advantage or the likes, and I always wash him when I get home, you cant say Im not going because of ticks as youd never go anywhere your pets can get ticks in a park or even the garden.
