The Conondales? Where's That?

On maps of South East Queensland, there's a major green block that tantalises those with a sense for the natural. It extends from Bellthorpe, just north of Woodford, upward through the hinterland behind the Sunshine Coast to west of Gympie. A large part of this area is the Conondale Range.

The nearest facilities are at Kenilworth, an attractive small hinterland town with a history of dairying and timber-getting.

An excellent historical museum graphically documents this past while a glance down the main street, particularly at weekends suggests substantial changes.
