Wilsons Peak and the Head of the Condamine River, Queensland

The range that includes the peak (Wilsons Peak) is actually the top of an escarpment that drops away into the coastal catchment of the Brisbane River, to the east.

The sunlit farmlands in the foreground are the headwaters catchment of the Condamine River which flows to become the Balonne, the Culgoa, then the Darling then into the Murray River before its waters flow into the Southern Ocean about 3700kms downstream.

Because of altitude and proximity to the Pacific Coast this area is cool, moist and green. But the river that drains it flows to a very distant coast, entering the Southern Ocean in South Astralia.
