Condamine Gorge

The Cambanoora Gorge
The Cambanoora Gorge runs between “The Head” (bordered by Wilsons Peak and Mt Superbus) and the town of Killarney, located in the southeast edge of the darling Downs in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range south-east Queensland. The Gorge is a place of great natural beauty into which is woven a rich cultural heritage, beginning with the original peoples and the Europeans who followed in their tracks and footsteps. It is also considered a place of great geological, ecological and historical archaeological interest.

 


Cambanoora Gorge as Cultural Heritage Landscape

Despite not being listed on any heritage register, be it state, local or federal, the Cambanoora Gorge in the Great Dividing Range is considered a place with very special values. It is an historic area within a rugged landscape, with natural forms, buildings, sites and archaeological remains dating back to before European settlement, and the early pioneering settler times in the region. It is a living heritage site with continuing use of buildings, open spaces and transport routs, and natural beauty which also contributes to its historic value.

Browns Falls

Browns Falls is a 15 metre waterfall only 4.5 kms outside of Killarney. A walk along the river rocks requires you to keep a careful eye out for track markers. The walk through the eucalypt and rainforest is not difficult, and well worth it when you come upon the dramatic falls.

Oaklea, farm stay accommodation, is part of a property that has been home to generations of the Peterson family for over 100 years. Originally timber and dairying country, it now produces beef cattle.
