Perched on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, Ravensbourne Park was a traditional bush tucker refreshment stop for Aboriginal people en route to and from the Bunya Mountains nut festivals. Once, rainforest covered most of the area but timber cutters and dairy farmers changed the landscape over the years. Patches of rainforest still exist and the drive along the winding Hampton-Esk road is one of the prettiest scenic drives in southern Queensland. 

RavensbourneThe Ravensbourne National Park is a day-use park with short walks though rainforest and open eucalypt forest, which support an amazing array of native birdlife. The self-guiding walk starts at the picnic area near Gus Beutel's Lookout, which provides a panoramic view of the range over the Lockyer Valley and to the Border Ranges in the south.

Nearby Lakes Cressbrook and Perseverance offer opportunities for bushwalking, boating, fishing, camping, bird watching and picnicking.
