Kingaham Creek, Queensland

Kingaham Creek is a major tributary of Yabba Creek, their confluence is within the impoundment of Lake Borumba.

Kingaham flows from the Jimna Range between Jimna and Goomeri. Its catchment includes granodiorite, metamorphic and volcanic rock. As it descends from the plateau it cuts an interesting course through these different geologies, dropping over a number of relatively small waterfalls on the way.

PHOTO Courtesy: David Stehbens, Pathfinder Aviation Atthow Falls are situated right on the edge of this photo and a short distance further downstream (out of image) Kingaham Falls are located. The small tributary stream with a tortuous course that joins the Kingaham in the foreground is Southern Cross Creek.

The cleared area in the background is Kingham Station, a former cattle station that is now a deer farm, and safari resort, owned by Mr Bill Webster.

Wild deer and dingoes roam this rugged forested terrain, even though much of it is also grazed by cattle. This is also koala country.

Camping in a wee tent in this rugged country at night, and hearing a howling pack of dingoes approaching one's campsite sends a chill up one's spine.
