Carnarvon National Park (mount Moffatt)
InformationIn this area around this point is the Mahogany Forest.
High up on the Consuelo Tableland, cool moist conditions support a majestic forest of tall stately stringybark trees.
Aboriginal people tell of how the Mahogany Forest was once home to an enormous eagle - the Goori Goori bird. Aboriginal children strayed from their parents were captured and eaten by the bird. Tracked to its roost high in the forest, warriors set alight the nest of the sleeping bird. The Goori Goori bird fled west across the sky, its burning feathers leaving a trail of sparks that formed Budhanbil, the Milky Way. Budhanbil still burns brightly when seen amongst the silhouttes of the giant Mahogany Forest stringybarks on a moonless, clear night.
