INDABA 04/05/2003


The Magical Mountain   Indaba

Again it was a long weekend, so there was not a large turnup. Seven Indabans (and a dog) met at the park behind the Majestic Theatre in Pomona. We had a relaxed morning tea, with lots of chatting and "catching up" on the latest news and happenings.

Five of us moved on to the "Mountain Park" at the base of Mt Cooroora, the stony sentinel that rises 435 metres above sea level, and is the second highest mountain in the Noosa - Cooloola region. The place was abuzz with activity as another group of people and kids climbed and explored.

We began to climb, but made a slight detour to marvel at the rock strata that was clearly visible in the walls of a now disused quarry.

We continued on up the track, noting the trees, rocks and other climbers.

Getting steep...

After a short, steep climb we turned left off the main track and headed towards the lower lookout. The view was fabulous, with clear vision out across lake Cootharaba, and to the ocean beyond the north shore...  We could see the town of Pomona below us, and Noosa in the distance.

We made our way back down to the park and had a leisurely lunch before departing with hugs all round. This had been a magnificent day.
