Flinders Peak - A Tough Summit Oct 2nd, 2021
ith its stunning views and rugged scenery, Flinders Peak is a beautiful formation about a 50-minute drive out of Brisbane and just a stoneâ€™s throw from Ipswich. Flinders may be pretty, but donâ€™t let that deceive you. Itâ€™s a tough 7-km return hike â€“ thatâ€™s a grade 5 track â€“ the highest of all difficulty ratings. Starting at the Flinders Plum recreation area, straight out of the car park â€“ itâ€™s a leg-burner. Oh, and itâ€™s over 500 metres of vertical climb! The trail doesnâ€™t waste much time before it starts heading up. First, through grassy hills with a good view of the peak youâ€™re about to climb, and then up a rugged dirt path past gumtrees and lantana. The trail is easy to follow up the hill. We then reach a line of rocks on top of the ridge. Weâ€™ll rock-hop along these for a few minutes with markers showing the way. Then our legs get a bit of a rest as we wind our way through trees before another push up to the Summit. The Flinders Peak summit is a little deceiving, it looks harder to reach than it actually is from the first lookout â€“ in reality itâ€™s only a 15-minute hike down into the saddle and up the moderately steep mountainside. When you reach the summit you will be greeted with views of the Scenic Rim and Amberley RAAF Base. If the weather is right we will be able to scout out the high-rises of Bris-Vegas. This area is all volcanic. It was formed over a three-million-year period about 26 million years ago. To say it is ancient land is an understatement. Itâ€™s Stunning. Please note that there are toilet facilities in the Flinders Plum Picnic Area.
