Blackdown Tableland National Park: Mook Mook and Goon Goon Dhina Walks.

Mimosa Creek in the afternoon.
The Goon Goon Dhina trail-head is located between campsites 12 and 13. The Mook Mook walk starts opposite the campground entrance. However, it is possible to join the two walks together by walking alongside Mimosa Creek and through the campground. 

Mook Mook: 2.4 km return, moderate grade. 
Cross Mimosa Creek and past interesting rock formations to a lookout. We were lucky to see the Blackdown Tablelands Fan Palms in flower.
