Mount Jim Crow

Mount Jim Crow, which lies between Rockhampton and Yeppoon in Queensland, Australia, can be easily seen from the Capricorn Highway. It stands about 200 metres above the surrounding plains. Each time I pass it I feel it has a mystical attraction.

The Department of National Parks for the Queensland Government web site describes it as:

An impressive trachyte plug from a long extinct volcano with dry rainforest on the lower slopes and emergent hoop pines at the summit.
