Lake Baroon 
7th-Sep-2008 10:39 pm

We jumped into the car and headed north towards the Glass House Mountains - and whatever else lay for discovery.

And it was that aimless wandering that brought us to Lake Baroon in Maleny. We caught glimpses of it as we wove around the crests and scattered cattle farms, but it wasn't until we were on top of the steep 2km descent towards the lake that the view truely took our breath away. The view of the soft blue was like a blessed mirage, beckoning the weary to take refuge in its stillness.
Unfortunately it's technically not swimmer-friendly due to blue-green algae bloom.

So excuse my hodge-podge cut-and-layer ensemble of photos to present a wide angle view. For those who don't want to brave the 2 hour drive without some decent relaxation, we caught glimpses of these amazing tree-houses that overlook the lake.

That's a spiffy view of the lake from that road.

It is, but driving back up it = 1st & 2nd gear all the way.

Ha ha ha, I just realized I've never used those gears on my car due to Florida being so darn flat. :) Of course I got an automatic transmission that would probably downshift it for me without my knowledge.

All for the taking if you can drive yourself over on this side of the coast. Which will hopefully be SOONER rather than LATER.
