Mt French National Park
The Boonah Shire has a number of places to indulge in a favourite Aussie pastime, bushwalking. There is Mount French National Park not far from the town. The climb to the top of Mount French is rewarded by excellent panoramic views over the Fassifern Valley. It is part of the 676-hectare Moogerah Peaks National Park which includes a number of volcanic peaks and rocky cliffs to the west of the town. Mt Moon, Mt Edwards and Mt Greville are the more isolated areas of the park and are suitable for experienced bushwalkers.
Main Range National Park
To the west of Boonah, back in the direction of Brisbane, lies the Main Range National Park with its famous Cunningham's Gap, named after one of Australia's better known early European explorers whose Christian name was Allan. This happened in 1827. He foresaw that this would be the access route joining the rich rural area to the coast and made the journey to prove his point.
