We visited the Carnarvon NP in April, doing both the Mt Moffitt section and the Carnarvon Gorge section.
We asked what the mountain was called where the Top Shelter Shed Lookout and Picnic Area was called, and we were told it was un-named. However, it appears that the lookout is at the western End of the Consuelo Tableland, forming part of the Great Dividing Range. This area is known as the roof of Queensland and is the highest plateau in Queensland. Most of the park is at elevation 700 metres, however this area is over 1000 metres. Elsewhere in the forum, a description was made of the climb to the top, and how the track reminded the writer of the Victorian Highlands. i have linked to a video of how we found the climb.

Laurie,

I was there with Bruce at Easter and it was my comments in my blog about the track to the Top Picnic Shelter Shed being similar to the Vic High Country.

Cheers Kev

I was going to put a photo up but it was taking for ever to download so I gave it a miss.

Thanks for that Kev. I have been searching for the thread so that I could quote it, but couldn't find it. I read your thread just after we had done it on the 16-17th April.

Cheers
