Day 4 - Windblown into the everglades

Day 4 - Windblown into the everglades
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

THE COLDEST time of year comes almost always in early August, when cold westerlies blow in from the deserts. With the cold winds comes Brisbane's annual show - the "Ekka" as is locally called. Originally run in the middle of the hot summer, it was at some point moved to this time of year when the apparent temperatures are at their coldest. Huge crowds gather in the confines of the exhibition grounds behind the city centre, ride the sideshows and look at the mostly rural exhibits. The tightly packed crowds and cold weather combined guarantee everyone coming down with the flu over the following weeks.

Today's hike takes me far away from the crowds traversing through the remotest part of the Great Sandy National Park. I start at Litoria, heading back up to the top of the Cooloola Sandmass main ridge before dropping down its western side into the vast everglade heathlands of the upper Noosa River.
